I am trying to use a book about movie’s script and explanation of it. Also I am using an internet site for learning English pop songs.
Using multimedia like movie clip and sound file for song is effective way to remember new vocabulary to me. I can connect a mood of movie or actor’s face and saying with new vocabularies. That reminds me the meaning of words. But the problem is the level of English. When I watch some movie clips, there are so many new words, idioms, and technical terms. I write the words even though I don’t know the spelling exactly and then I look it up in a dictionary. But it takes long time to compare with the number of new words what I learn. So, special books for learning English with movie and internet sites shorten the time for study.
For that reason, I always try to teach my students with various materials which contain visual and aural things.
p.s.) I can’t find a movie which is helpful and appropriate level for academic English yet! ^^
