The CLE Movie Discussion Club combines a love for film with a desire to speak English.
Participants meet monthly to discuss selected films in English. Two movie-crazy CLE faculty, Rongrong Dong and Al Evans, are the co-founders and co-leaders. Working together, they guide discussions for participants, making it easy to talk about films in English. Moviemaking techniques and film criticism issues are frequently included.
