Hi Monica,
I found Babel extremely interesting. The way the script intertwines the lives of these "lonely" people from different cultures and areas of the world is very powerful. A couple in trouble, an adolescent misunderstood by peers, an immigrant who has been far from home and loved ones for too many years ... and still, there are signs of affection, commitment, loyalty, understanding within each of their tragic situations.
I hope to come back again to read what others think about the film.

As to your blog, it is a great start and I guess you will decide later on what gadgets to add as the needs arise.

Cariños y saludos, Berta, a friend from B4B

Dear Mônica,

I want really bad to watch Babel, but haven't had time. What I can tell now is that I'm leaving in a kind of Babel with English, Spanish and Portuguese speakers around...Some don't get to understand others and certain groups don't mix because of the language barriers. An interesting place for reflection.

I'd like to know more what's the focus of the movie from the ones who watched it.

As for your blog, great start!

My only suggestion: add labels to your posts (tags) in order to easily retrieve them.

Hi Mônica,
Here you are! I did not know where I would find you but it seems that we have all been pretty busy... and the easiest place would be connected with the MA, of course! I have not seen the movie yet but it is my top priority now!
As for the blog, congratulations!!! I loved it!

Hi Monica,

Congratulations on your blog! I love movies and I think they have a fantastic potential in ELT so I'll visit you blog frequently to check out the updates and share ideas and opinions.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen "Babel" yet, but it sounds like a perfect choice for an EFL class blog. I am a fan of González Iñarritu since his first movie "Amores Perros".

Haven't watched "Babel" yet, but wanted to congratulate you on this start anyway!

It's usually hard for me to find time to go to the cinema, but now I know where I can share my reactions after a show!;-)
