I always recommend older movies, because the language was a little slower and more clearly pronounced. I also believe that music is a good way to learn English, so I recommend old musicals: Guys and Dolls, Grease, High Society and many others.
watch out. Usually subtitles don't match exactly what the actors say, they might be quite different or leave out important parts (important for learning). If you want my opinion, I find movies somewhat difficult to understand, generally speaking, and not very useful (they often talk too quietly and too little, fast, etc.). I think sitcoms might be easier. Lots of dialogs, lots of different situations, etc. And try to understand without subtitles, if you can.
So go to Youtube and watch some clips or trailers, than chose the movie or sitcom you think you might understand better. Emotion: smile
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thank you . I will try to found this movie .
For me movies is very difficult for understand , but I read subtitles first and after watch part of movie . And I press back button until understood . If the subtitles is wrong I have a problem ))) but many of good English movies was be never translate in Russan and its good reason to improve lisening skills. Thanks for recommendation Kooyeen
We always recommend this great site to our Kantalk users for the movie clips: (http://www.americanrhetoric.com/moviespeeches.htm ). You might find it useful, too.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
By the way, could anyone give links to download good films in English with subtitles (I mean with educational purposes) to watch in class with the pupils.
Here's my advice,
Watch any English movies with English subtitles. Nothing benefits me more than these movies. Most importantly, they keep you updated with what native speakers really say in the real world. At first it may seem difficult, but after a while, it'll be a piece of cake. Good Luck
I think that "Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" is a good movie to learn English.
