Abstract
The current study aims at depicting the post method panorama of learning English as a second language through using short feature films for the non native English speakers. Short feature films can be used as a specific language tool considering as refreshing experience for the students as well as the teachers. Within the limits of the curriculum, the development of methodology to deal with feature films prepares the grass roots for similar work with other non-conventional resources. This obviously will increase the choice of strategies for the English as Second Language (ESL) teachers who often find it difficult to generate students’ motivation. Films are not an alternative to the text book. Rather they provide a supplement which should help ingestion and make the main course more palatable. On the other hand, students also tend to get something new, interesting and innovative to learn a new language.
