Learning English is not just limited to classroom; you can absorb English from your surroundings by listening to songs or watching movies and series.
Learning a language is much easier when you’re enjoying yo
urself – and the best way is watching movies (with a tub of popcorn, of course)! To help you out, here’s a list of movies I think are the most effective (and entertaining) to help you learn English.
1. Forrest Gump
This saccharine sweet comedy-drama film displays Forrest Gump, a slow but kind-hearted man who wins hearts and unknowingly influences the world around him. Forrest’s slow, clear and uncomplicated speech makes it easy to follow the movie’s plot and increases your understanding of the English language.
2. The Hunger Games series
Easy-to-understand American accent? Check. If you’re a fan of sci-fi adventures with some romance and post-apocalyptic politics thrown in for good measure, get watching.
3. The Social network
The movie shows the creation of Facebook and how Mark Zuckerberg managed to turn it into the ultimate social media platform.
4. V for Vendetta
Impeccable pronunciation and verbose vocabulary by Hugo Weaving is just a feast along with everything else.
5. Kingsman: The Secret Service
Authentically funny and intense as well as slick and suave throughout, this roller coaster ride with guns is more accessible to a broader audience.
6. Harry Potter series
If you’re into magic potions and spells this movie is just for you. So hold onto your Nimbus 2000 and lets enter a world full of wizards and witches.
7. The Lord of the Rings
The film series of 3 epic fantasy films are just the thing you need to escape the reality. The movie revolves around hobbits, wizards, elves, humans, lilliputs and ogres.
8. Inside out
Have you ever wondered what goes inside your brain? Find out in this heartwarming coming of age movie.
9. Avengers series
Phenomenally entertaining and a masterpiece!!! Marvel universe never disappoints, movies full of superheroes, powerful villains, space artifacts and topped with sarcasm.
10. Toy story series
Besides tugging at your heartstrings and making you roar with laughter to infinity and beyond, Toy Story also benefits your command of the English language!
As you can see, learning English doesn’t have to be like watching paint dry. The key is to make learning enjoyable. So, have fun watching these movies while improving your English!
