Learn English Through Movies

After my first 8 months in Japan, I told my students that I understood what they were saying in Japanese, but I couldn’t say anything back.  The words wouldn’t come.  One of my students laughed and said, “That means you’re like a baby!”  I didn’t laugh at his joke.  You can imagine how happy I was to hear that he thought I was like a baby.  I was really trying!

Of course I understood what he meant.  When we first learn a new language, listening is important. Like a child, we hear sounds repeated, and watch people making certain faces.  So it makes sense that when you want to learn a new language, people always give the same advice, “Watch TV and movies!”  I agree, listening and watching in a new language is super important!

Check out this awesome website I found.  It shows movie trailers, and then gives listening exercises afterwards.  With the exercises, this is even better than movies and TV.  Don’t be a baby! Try doing a couple every week. 🙂
