Watching English movies is a great way for your child to improve English while enjoying stories and music! Some parents might associate television programming with “brain drain,” but with the right show, it doesn’t have to be.
Movies are a way to see the English language being used, without needing to find native speakers near us. We can stop, go back and repeat any part as much as we want. In movies, your child will hear natural pronunciation, everyday vocabulary, spoken grammar, common idioms, slang, and be exposed to various accents. Even better, she will learn these from interesting and emotional stories. And because there are countless movies based on an infinite amount of things, you can use them to introduce or spark discussions about a certain topic, be it a historical event, a time period or the culture of a foreign country. At Everest Education, we love using English movies as a great teaching tool in our classrooms!
