In this paper I shall discuss the use of a task-based approach, in the form of making a movie, to re-motivate a group of long-term ESL students. I shall offer an in-depth analysis of my experience of introducing an upper–intermediate class to making a movie. In particular, I shall detail how the movie-making task was instigated, the process of planning and implementing the assignment, and the role of the teacher in preparation and monitoring. I shall also provide feedback from individual students on their experiences
