A large number of Chinese students consider that learning English is a boring and even painful process. However, there is an interesting and effective way of learning English – watching movies in English.
Nowadays, with the help of internet and advanced science and technology, receiving information has been easier than ever before. We can get a lot of English movies through internet and use advanced devices to play them, such as laptop and mobile phone, anywhere and anytime. Watching movies is not only a kind of entertainment, but also an effective way of learning English.
Why watching movies can help improve our English? First, by watching movies, we can understand better how the natives speak English and learn their pronunciation and grammar usage, and correct ours. Second, it is also a good way to realize the thinking pattern of English-speakers. Recognizing the differences between Chinese and foreigners’ thinking patterns can help us speak and write correct pure English. Thirdly, watching movies in English also practice our listening. Instead of reading English words, we listen to what the speakers say and the tone they use. After a period of time, we will find that our listening has improved. Finally, another benefit of watching movies in English is that we can know more and more customs and manners of foreigner countries, which are good for our communication with foreigners.
To sum up, watching English movies can help improve our English in various aspects.
