College students in Japan typically take English classes to improve their language skills, primarily listening, reading, speaking, and writing. In this study, two class practices were conducted at a Japanese metropolitan college and a national university to encourage students to deeply think about communication between characters in the American film, "Top Gun Maverick". The students viewed the film and responded to questions about communication issues, problem solving for better communication, and character relationships. They also expressed their comments via Google Forms and discussed everyone’s ideas via Google Classroom. The questionnaire, which was distributed following the classes, yields positive results in learning communication through film. Most students approved of the class design, and this activity has the potential to encourage students to deeply think about communication and their future language acquisition.
