Oscar Booklet by Celile Gürsu: The OscarBooklet-CelileGürsu2018 is designed to give students the opportunity to extend their learning experience beyond the textbook, and increase their motivation and interest in learning and using English through movies. It encourages students to watch the year’s best movies before the academy awards are given and compare their favourite films with the actual winners. Booklets are given to students three or two weeks prior to the academy awards night and students are asked to watch all the movies until that time. In the last lesson just before the Oscar weekend, the teacher and students go over the film review questions; have a discussion about the merits of each movie and together vote for the one which deserves the best picture award. The questions in the movie review part are adapted from the link below; http://www.teachwithmovies.org/standard-questions.htm

Self study Booklet by Vildan Çal: The SelfStudyBooklet-VildanÇal (2017) is designed to help learners improve their English by guiding them about how to do extra practice outside of class. The booklet is divided into 4 sections; Vocabulary, Listening, Speaking, and Writing. After learners decide and talk about their learning goals with their teachers and tutor, they identify areas where they would like to improve. They then start doing activities from different sections of the booklet according to their needs and interests.
