English by Movies

การฝึกภาษาอังกฤษจากภาพยนต์ แตกต่างจากการดูหนังฝรั่ง ตรงที่การดูหนังเราได้ความบันเทิงแต่ไม่ได้เรียนภาษาเพราะภาษาพุดจะเร็วมาก จนไม่สามารถจับใจความได้เลย แม้จะดู Subtitle ก็เรียนได้ผลน้อยมาก

แต่การฝึกเรียนภาษาจากหนังฝรั่ง ต้องเลือกหนังที่มีคนนำบทพูดมาอธิบาย(ค้นได้จากกูเกิล) ควรเลือกดูหนัง(เพื่อเรียนภาษา)เพียงตอนสั้นๆที่สนุกสนานและดูซ้ำๆจนจับคำ พูดได้


1 ดูครั้งแรก  มี Subtitles ไทย เพื่อให้เข้าใจเรื่องทั้งหมด

2 ดูครั้งที่ 2  เปิด ฉพาะ English Subtitles

3 เลือกดูซ้ำๆ หลายๆครั้ง ตอนสั้นๆที่เป็นบทเรียน ซึ่งมีคำอธิบายประกอบ ตัวอย่างที่ดี ดูได้ จาก Live ABC

Every scene of the movie has a lesson set that includes: Text of the script, a Vocabulary Lesson, 2 or more Mini-Story Lessons (including some Point of View Lessons), and Audio from the scene. Some scenes also have Commentaries.

By using all the lessons, you understand all of an American movie. Also, you learn a lot of slang & idioms from the movie– the kind used everyday by Americans. But you don’t have to wait for our lessons. You can use this same method yourself, with any movie. Movies are a great way to learn– but you must use them correctly.

Most English students don’t use movies correctly. They rent a lot of American movies, watch them, return them, and then rent more. They may understand the basic story of each movie, but they don’t improve their English.

Here’s a better method for learning with movies:

1. Rent or buy ONE movie

2. Watch all of it, with subtitles in your own language

3. Next, watch only one scene of the movie (a scene is usually 2-4 minutes long). Use ENGLISH subtitles.

4. Rewind. Watch the same scene again. This time, pause for every sentence. Write down phrases/words you don’t understand.

5. Use your dictionary to learn these new words. Search the internet for strange phrases (probably slang or idioms).

6. Watch the scene again at normal speed– 2-3 times. Turn the subtitles OFF. Try to hear and understand the new phrases.

7. Watch the scene again– 2-3 times. Pause after every sentence, then say the sentence yourself. Don’t just “say” it. Copy the actor! Try to sound and move exactly like them. Copy their emotion. Copy their face movements. Copy their voice. This will improve your pronunciation.

Using this method, you can probably learn 1-3 scenes per week. Don’t go too fast. Learn deeply. Repeat steps 3-7 everyday. If a scene is difficult, you can do this again and again for several days. Its important to learn every scene very deeply.

It may feel slow, but when you finally finish a whole movie, your English is fantastically better! Use this method, it is very powerful

Yet, you can see some friends, who watch thousand of hollywood movie, do not speak any words!! Right, the thing is you don’t just watch it but you have to watch by learning purpose to create more useful entertainment.

The steps may annoy your emotion but if you want to learn English you better follow below steps. Otherwise, you may lost your time and effort without nothing. There are three easy steps to follow

1. Buy soundtrack movie (of course!) and watch it with the subtitle on at the first time. Your eyes and ears should work equally at this stage. Try to understand the theme and the main idea of the movie.

2. Watch it again, still with subtitle on, but now try to minimize the use of your eyes on the subtitle. Listen as much as possible and look at the subtitle only when you really do not understand. Skip all small detail at the first time and slowly increase the amount of learning by decreasing the number of time you stop the movie.

3. Watch it without subtitle. It sounds tough but believe me, after enough practice at the first two steps, you will find it easier to watch the movie in pure English.

You may need to spend sometime to pass the first two steps. Do not reach the last step to early because it can greatly discourage you. However, if you reach it when you are ready you may never imagined that english is such a piece of cake for you.

    Sometimes, men rent apartments more detailed their companies so they could possibly get more sleep, going
    home (that may be a two-and-a-half-hour train ride, during which the men might
    read pornographic comics when they are not sleeping) only on weekends, or even
    only every month. I haven’t seen an excellent relationship under those circumstances. For instance, you’ll find strip poker sites where the users play
    a game title of cards.
