The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of two ways of using movies for English teaching: using the same movie from the beginning to the end and using segments of different movies. Both ways seem to have merits and demerits. In order to compare the effectiveness, two classes were taught in different ways. The results of the post-test revealed that both ways were effective in improving students' listening ability, and there was no significant difference between them. On the other hand, the results of the post-questionnaire indicated that using the same movie from the beginning to the end was more effective in terms of enhancing students' motivation.
