What is the dark night of the soul, where is it in a story, and why is it important?
The dark night of the soul is the moment when all hope is lost for the protagonist. It occurs after the midpoint and right before the climax. Therefore, the climax is the point where the character resolves the dark night of the soul, and it adds more depth to the story.

How would you create a low-budget film in today's market if you have never tried to sell a film before?
Make sure the script is between 90 and 120 pages. Some ways to keep the budget low are to limit special and video effects, cast, and locations. As a first-time filmmaker, be sure you are up-to-date by using different film information websites and watching recent releases of films. The best way to have something made is to have it be something someone wants to buy. Make sure you know what people are buying, and keep your budget to a minimum, and you will have a better chance.

As a student, you are planning a trip to New York City, and you want to know what you can do in order to prepare for your trip.
In this situation, I would first present tourism phrases and NYC-specific language. You, the student would then complete an activity in which you match the words and phrases to corresponding pictures, and then once you have the concept, I would have you write the directions from the airport to Central Park using the new vocabulary.
