120 DVD movies available for loan and to keep

Shawshank Redemption -my favourite movie of all time

This post is for all my students, past and present.

Below is a list of DVDs I have available for loan or for you to keep. All are original and completely legal. The ones marked with L are for loan and the ones not marked with L you are free to keep or circulate further. If a title appears more than once it means I have several copies. I will strike through them as they go. Please let me know in the comments or via email (janet.carr@gmail.com) which ones you would like. You can choose a maximum of three at a time.

If you work in central Stockholm I can bring the movies directly to you, or you can collect them from my office at Jakobs torg 3.

To use them to improve your English, turn subtitles off or choose English subtitles.

If you want to know more about them, pop a question in the comments.
