    There are many young people who want to be teachers. They think becoming a teacher is easy. In fact, becoming a teacher is not easy. It needs continual motivation and self-reflection in order to improve teachers themselves professionally. When the students are sure that they will be teachers, most of them do still have a question: “What kind of teacher am I going to be?” Therefore, when students take teacher education, the teachers should be able to give a lot of exposure related to teaching conditions. In Chinese Department, Petra Christian University the teacher education program does not provide the students with teaching practice since teacher education is only a minor. Due to this condition, the teachers use movies in order to give exposure, motivation and reflection on how to be a good teacher. This paper will explore how students who are interested in becoming teachers engage in a deeper discussion through the self-reflection and have more motivation after watching movies related to the subject they learn. These movies can help them to have a clear description on the complexity of becoming good teachers.
