Watching movies, a great way to improve your English As someone whose native language is not English was a hard task for me to learn and improve my English, especially my listening and pronunciation.
One of the best things that helped a lot in this case was watching movies. At first, I would just watch each movie once and sometimes even using the subtitles to understand everything but then I realized that when watching a movie with subtitles, rather than concentrating on what was being said, I was following the subtitles; so I stopped.
