Movie dialogues are a valuable resource for teaching English for communication. Because they have specific cultural backgrounds and meaningful contexts, and are rich in paralinguistic and extralinguistic information, they give learners intellectual and emotional stimuli which are not found in ready-made textbooks, as well as help enhance learners' motivation and enliven classroom atmosphere. This paper examines ways of using fragments of movie dialogue as supplementary materials in conversational English classes based on situational and functional syllabuses. Emphasis is placed on how to adapt various pieces of dialogue for creative communication activities at intermediate level and upwards.
