By immersing yourself in the language, you can learn new vocabulary, improve your pronunciation, and gain a better understanding of how the language is used in everyday situations.
Plus it's a fun and enjoyable way to practice your English skills. In this lesson, I'll share some tips on how to learn English by watching English language TV shows or movies. So grab some popcorn, turn on your favorite show, and let's get started.
One way to learn English by watching English language TV shows or movies is to start by choosing shows or movies that are appropriate for your level of English proficiency.
Another tip is to try to watch the show or movie without subtitles if possible, this will force you to listen to the language and try to understand it, which can help improve your listening skills. If you do need to use subtitles, then try to turn on subtitles in English instead of your L1 native language. This can help you become more familiar with the way the words are pronounced and how they are spelled. It can also be helpful to pause the show or movie and try to repeat what the characters are saying out loud. This can be really fun and it can also help improve your pronunciation and speaking skills. And of course, rewind and go back and check it and see if there's alignment between the way the characters are pronouncing the words and phrases and how you are pronouncing the words and phrases.
Additionally, try to pay attention to the way the characters are using the language and how they're constructing their sentences. Notice the use of vocabulary and grammar structures and try to incorporate these into your own speech. Overall, the key to learning English by watching TV shows or movies is to be consistent and to practice as much as possible.
The more you watch, listen, and repeat, the better you will at become understanding and speaking English.
There are many movies in TV shows that can be helpful for L2 English speakers to improve their English and some suggestions of TV shows might include FRIENDS, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones, and the Queen's Gambit.
