This paper presents a case study of teaching English as a foreign language by using English language movies. Emphasis is placed on a specially designed movie course for students of Master of Education in Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Beijing Normal University in China. First, the advantages of movies and practicalities are presented. Second, detailed course descriptions are given and examined. Third, processes of watching movies and post-viewing activities are described. Furthermore, the questions and answers of a survey are reported. Based on the data and results of the survey, it is found that studying in this kind of authentic context helps students in several ways: (1) improve their English competence through watching, listening, speaking and writing, (2) gain self-confidence in speaking English in front of audiences, (3) improve their presentation skills, and (4) develop an awareness and understanding of cultures in English-speaking countries. Finally, some suggestions are given to middle school teachers to use movies in classes.
