Maybe you think it is hard to practice English in Lockdown. But in fact, there are a number of ways you can keep your language learning alive. Here we list 7 of the best ways to practice English – and all from the comfort of your own living room, or bed.
Watch the whole film for fun
Everyone loves movies, don’t they? Watching films is an excellent way to improve your English.
When you watch a film, there are two ways to practice. First, you can practice for general understanding. Second, you can practice for detail. So, what does this mean? Practising for general understanding means you watch the whole film from start to finish. Don’t stop, don’t pause, don’t worry if you miss something. In fact, just focus on the story. Instead of trying to understand every word the characters are saying, just concentrate on the action.
If you do this, new vocabulary will jump out at you. While you are watching the story, bits and pieces will make sense, and some new words stay in your mind. Overall, this way of watching a film lets you enjoy the story, the sound and rhythm of the language. This is the fun part, and you don’t need to worry if there are bits you miss.
Should you use subtitles? Actually, this depends on your level, and on what you yourself are comfortable with. Why not start with subtitles and then try without them once you feel more confident? Subtitles really do help with new words and pronunciation, so don’t feel embarrassed about using them. Don’t feel that you need to make things difficult for yourself!
