Can we train listening comprehension by watching movies? Sure, that’s why most Dutch and Scandinavians speak English well! And is it easier in the 21st century? Yes, sure!!
Moving from a small country to a large European country like Germany or France, you’ll be shocked when watching television. Most movies are synchronized, where they replaced the voice layer. It sounds especially weird when you’re not used to it.
But it’s also a chance to immerse yourself in a foreign language experience. Some scientists think that if you understand the meaning, the comprehension will follow. Maybe a movie that you already know? Maybe add subtitles? Up to you.
It may take a few minutes but you’ll get used to it then!
So here it is, the URL with which you can browse Netflix movies in the language you’re learning. Just click on the image below.
pssst. If you want to learn a new language by speaking to people, we built a free iOS app for that. We’d be happy if you give it a try, maybe you’ll like it.
