A. Merely listening and watching seems to work best for most students.
Paul, my good friend who runs a business in Shenzhen, is one of the best English speakers I know in China, but he has never been out of the country. His secret? He has listened to every episode of Friends at least four times.
B. Turn the Chinese subtitles on ONLY if you do not find it confusing to try to read Chinese while listening to English. Many scholars report better learning by turning the subtitles OFF.
C. I think these movies are fun listening.
- Jungle Book
- 101 Dalmatians
- The Secret Garden
Which movies do you like?
