Here is the final contest winner, for “Most Thoughtful” writeup of a technique.
I’d like to entry the contest!
My way to study English is watching DVDs of ”Friends”.
To begin with, I often watch it subtitled in Japanese to understand its outline, after that,I watch it subtitled in English, then without subtitle several times.
sometimes, I consult this script to understand the plot: http://www.friendstranscripts.tk/
I think watching TV drama is useful for English learners to learn and we can not only learn English in an enjoyable format, but also learn it from the situation so vocab is also easy to stick in your head.
besides,reading the script aloud is also helpful to speak English.
That’s why I pick this way up & I believe it works well for me.
It was submitted by the Twitter user @turningpoint6. Even though her entry was short, I think she did a great job of thinking about several ways to use and benefit from technique:
- It’s fun, which always helps!
- Watching TV episodes several times can help you with listening and vocabulary.
- You can practice multiple skills this way–listening, speaking, and reading.
- The new vocabulary is in a context, which makes it easy to remember. (It also helps you learn about who uses that kind of word, when to use it, etc.)
