How to learn English with films


Are you a big movie fan? Are English classes (or work) destroying your precious TV watching time? Well this is your lucky day. Here is an English learning technique for you which combines both study and pleasure.

We should all know about switching on the subtitles on the TV or DVD player by now. You can usually turn on the subtitles for your language or into English, depending on the original language. This is a reasonably useful tool, especially for reading and writing development. But subtitles can easily just turn into a lazy way of reading movies, you probably won’t develop all the necessary skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking) in an even manner.

– Terrible day, isn’t it? (if it’s raining outside)
– Looking forward to the weekend? (on Friday afternoon or evening)
– Good weekend? (on Monday morning)
