Movies in English
There are so different ways for English language learners to improve their language skills. People studying English at schools such as TALK English Schools should take advantage of all the different ways that are there to help them familiarize themselves with the English language and learn the skills needed to communicate effectively. Movies are a great way of helping to learn a new language. When you learn English through movies you learn a lot about not only what is said, but the way certain words and phrases are delivered, when they are said – their context – and this is a fantastic way to improve spoken English and learn new words and expressions. Here are some clues to picking up language skills through movies:
In order to improve many aspects of language skills, watch TV programs and movies These mediums for learning a language work especially well if you have a good auditory and visual memory, but as a tool for any English language learner they are great to get a grasp of the way the language is spoken.
The first advantage of watching movies and TV shows is that you get to have the opportunity to become accustomed to the sounds of the language and the natural flow of the language. Watching a movie in a foreign language can seem daunting and the fast dialogue may make it hard for understanding. Even if you are a beginner in the English language, through the process of watching a movie till the end, you will find that you are bound to pick up some new words, hear the ways conversations are conducted and listen to different conversation topics, and understand at a greater level words and phrases you have heard already but not used.
Subtitles are also a great way of learning how to say a word or understand language. You can easily pause the movie, and then repeat a sentence that you want to learn. By watching a movie and repeating it over and over you will improve your pronunciation of certain words. Hearing the same words and people talk in a natural way can help you to create your own flow, how you pronounce the words, and how you can sound natural.
A great way to start your learning through TV shows and movies is by watching children programs. The Muppets or Sesame Street is a good way to start. Children’s movies are easier to understand because of their slower dialogue and unpretentious, simple words. Children’s programs generally show a specific object and talk about it while describing its properties. This can be a great way of gaining insight to certain words and their meanings for beginner English language students.
