    • creating subtitles to a film, video or other leads to an exchange of ideas and eventually to compromises

    • each group member can contribute to the product according to their language level and skills

    Using the internet and a subtitle programme might motivate teachers and students to use this device further on.

    The application of words might enrich the word power of the students
