#073 Learn English with Netflix

Welcome to the Speak English Now Podcast, your resource for practicing your English speaking and listening. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to learn English more effectively.


Hi, everyone! I’m Georgiana, founder of speakenglishpodcast.com. My mission is to help you to speak English fluently.

In this episode, I’ll recommend some of my favorite TV shows that will help you with your English. I’ll give you some useful tips on how to use Netflix to improve your English. And later, you’ll practice your English speaking with an exciting mini-story.

Alright! Let’s start!

Netflix has changed the way we spend our free time. We spend a lot more time watching our favorite shows, so why not use all this time to speed up the way we learn English too? English-language TV shows can quickly introduce you to authentic English and can help keep you motivated and entertained as you learn. In today’s episode, I’ll let you know how watching TV can help you improve your language skills. You’ll stop feeling guilty about watching TV!

The next time your friends ask you what you did all weekend, you can proudly say that you spent all weekend watching TV.

Here’s what you can do while you’re watching a TV show in English:

1)Always choose an English show which you are interested in watching. And always use subtitles in English. 

2) To make it easier for you to start watching TV series which you’ve already watched in your own language. Since you already know the plot, you’ll spend more time focusing on the language.

3)Practice listening to different accents.  The more you listen to different accents, the easier you’ll understand them. Remember to use subtitles in English.

Here are some of my favorite TV shows in English:
Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Discovery, Mad Men, Ozark, SuitsHouse of Cards, Outlander, The Good Place, Mozart in the Jungle, Silicon ValleyThe Marvelous Miss Maisel.

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.
