Irish Film Institute

Let's watch a classical film at the cinema!

Today we are going to visit one really traditional place in Dublin: The Irish Film Institute (formerly the Irish Film Centre), also known as the IFI, is both an arthouse cinema and a national body that supports Irish Film heritage. The IFI presents film festivals, retrospectives and curated seasons, along with independent, Irish and foreign language films overlooked by commercial multiplexes at its cinemas in the Temple Bar quarter of Dublin. It maintains an archive of Irish films and provides education in film culture. 

At the end of the session, you will have:

  • read and answered some questions about the Irish Film Institute.
  • learnt the use of quantifiers a little/a few / a lot of with countable and uncountable nouns.
  • designed the final version of your campaign.

Would you like to know more about the Irish Film Institute? Do you usually go to the cinema? How often do you go to the cinema? 

Click on the Irish Film Institute Official Website.and try to find out the information (Read the questions and answer them):

  • What can you buy at the IFI shop? (To find out, visit the "Shop" section).
  • What time does the cafe-bar open? Do they serve the Sunday Brunch? (To find out, visit the "Cafe-Bar" section).

  • Can you hire St. George's Market for an event? How much do you have to pay for 1 session (4 hours)? (To find out, visit "Hiring St. George's Market" section).

You have to answer these questions in your learning diary.

We have got a little time left in Dublin

We use quantifiers quite a lot in English. We can use a few, a little, a lot and lots of to mean "not very much", "not very many" and "plenty of". The one you choose depends on whether the noun is countable or uncountable.

Let's read some more information about the use of countable and uncountable nouns

And in order to learn more about quantifiers, do the following activity: few, little and lots of.

You can design a digital poster to explain the difference between both types of nouns and quantifiers.

In order to design a good digital poster, you have to take into account the 'Rubric to assess a digital poster'.

If you do not have a favourite digital poster creator already, choose from the 10 presentation tools for students site. 

Your task : The final version of your campaign
