Summer is the most ideal time to think about how we would like to improve our existing language proficiency. Many people ask how to learn English in the most effective way in everyday life besides lessons?
Contrary to the general assumption, watching movies with subtitles is preferable up to intermediate level and above, but in the case of language skills below it – because of the speed of the act and the quick dialogues – even the whole thing may become obscure for the viewer.
Similar issues may arise when reading various media products. The constant phrasing of a number of unknown words and phrases takes away the reader’s desire to finish the article.
So what is the ideal solution then? Watching various, short, simplified, subtitled movies on Youtube, for example: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHh5i83CFCk8DZyeEEIfZdA.
