Spanish TV Shows and Movies
Watching television is one of our favorite ways to learn a language. The most important thing about choosing what to watch is to make sure that you enjoy it! Research has shown that when you are interpreting compelling information is when the most language acquisition occurs! We highly suggest that you turn on the Spanish subtitles and read along while watching. If you are a beginner or intermediate learner, do not obsess with trying to break down every sentence. Just sit, back, relax, and enjoy being immersed in the language! As a beginner/intermediate Spanish student, you will not understand most of the spoken language, but you will start to pick up on new words and expressions slowly but surely as you hear them (and read them) over and over again in context.
