The film was considered as a means of visualization: visual, auditory, verbal. It was also shown how to use a feature film to motivate students to communicate in the classroom, learn English and education in general. The paper found that feature film can be used in various fields of English language teaching. It is an effective means of developing skills of oral communication, listening, teaching vocabulary, grammar, writing, socio-cultural and regional aspects. Each area of study was considered separately. The paper considers aspects that need to be considered when using feature films in teaching English: technical characteristics of videos, organization of lessons based on films, the most effective use of films, learning difficulties and other problems that teachers may face when using feature films in training.
