28 Nov Tips for learning english with movies2
When choosing a movie to watch to learn English, it is important to choose a movie that you like
If you watch a movie purely for the purpose of learning English, it will not motivate you to watch it. Choose a movie that you would like to watch in your native language and in English, as well.
Don’t use a dictionary!
Focus on asking yourself questions and learn in context. There is nothing worse than watching a movie and having to use a dictionary to look up new words all the time. Instead of looking up the words in a dictionary pause the movie when you hear a word you do not understand and ask yourself questions about the context the word was used in. Was it used in a positive context or a negative context? What happened in the scene before? By asking yourself questions about that new word, you are training your brain to think in English.
Repeat short phrases by shadowing
When you hear new phrases in English, repeat these phrases out loud by shadowing. Shadowing is when you listen to an English speaker speaking and repeat exactly what they say. By shadowing these new phrases and expressions, your ability to pronounce these words and use them in the future will improve.
