#084 Learn English with FRIENDS TV Series

Listen to a new episode of Speak English Now Podcast, your favorite material for practicing your spoken and heard English. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to improve your English more effectively.

Transcript:

Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques.

Hey, do you watch TV series to practice your English? Let’s talk about that. One of the most popular series of all time is…can you guess it? No, it’s not House of Cards. Let me give you a hint: Currently, it’s the most-watched TV show on Netflix. Still, not a clue? Well, I’m talking about “Friends.” You know: Rachel and Ross, Monica and Chandler, Joey and Phoebe. Right? 

Not only is “Friends” entertaining, but also it’s an excellent resource for improving your informal English by learning tons of phrasal verbs and slang.

In this episode, I’d like to talk about this TV show. By the way, I recently rewatched all the seasons in a row. That’s called binge-watching. And boy how I enjoyed it!

Apparently, when you are binge-watching your favorite show, your brain is continually producing dopamine, so it becomes an addiction.

The TV show has ten seasons, and the duration of each episode is 30 minutes. And I guess half an hour is more than enough. Besides, that makes it even more addictive. As the episodes are short, you end up watching 3 or 5 in a row.

Some say that “Friends” is still one of the most popular television series of all time for a reason: it’s not just a TV show; it’s a way of life. And that may be true.

Regardless of your age, gender and nationality you should watch this TV show. It’s the perfect excuse to learn English and learn new expressions and have fun!

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
