Students’ experiences in learning a second language have been studied extensively during the past few decades while learning through mass media has acquired attention of the practitioners during the last two decades. One of the mediums used in this regard are the movies since exposure to English in movies has been found to help the learners learn better.

The study discusses reasons behind efficacy of movies in building vocabulary. The study contributes to the existing literature on vocabulary acquisition and teaching by highlighting the roles of motion pictures.
