Learn American English with Movies!
No amount of time in class can prepare you for the real world as much of the English we learn is too difficult, unpractical to use & often learned out of context.
With over 1200+ no-more-than-1-minute-long scenes, chosen from popular movies that arent action-filled but more of dialogue & personal stories, this app walks you through 29 main subjects & 139 sub-topics, dealing with everyday topics that are accurate and true to life, centered around the issues of family, love, relationships, work & growing up.
The dialogs are brief, simple to follow so you dont have to concentrate as much on the plot, but fully on many visual cues: tone of voice, facial expression, body language that help you guess whats going on. Youll then naturally pick up new words, phrases, jokes, slang, idioms & appropriate reactions in the context of real-life use, not only the meaning in isolation but also the sense of how its used, in relation to others for you to stay culturally competent.
Moreover, youll learn how to use tone of voice to convey different messages of a sentence JUST by shifting intonation as English is MORE THAN just WHAT we speak, BUT ALSO about HOW we say things. Hows it goin? Good . Does Good ALWAYS mean good? Sometimes, it may mean not good! Watching American English movies can go a long way.
The good news is youll learn from the worlds best actors, as theyre native speakers so you can also use them as an excellent source of native English pronunciation & American accent.
What's more, you can turn the English subtitles on & off at your convenience, basically skimming through the dialog to test how much of the episode you can catch without subtitle and then recognize any weaknesses in your understanding of spoken English.
When you watch a scene with English subtitles on, youll see how much different the American English pronunciation of an isolated word is from that of the same word in connected speech. Sometimes sounds are added, omitted or changed, in different ways as language isn't set in stone. It changes all the time.
