    Exclamation What percentage of a movie do you undrestand?

    Hello everyone,
    It has always been a question for me that when you(specialy native speakers)watch a movie, what percentage of it would be undrestandable for you ?I mean do you undrestand all parts of it ,and can you notice all the words? I sometimes think that my listening is not so good .what do you think?

    Thanks for sharing,

    It depends. If I watch an American movie, at the time I seem to understand everything, but if I looked at the script, I'd probably see that I didn't understand it all.

    Often, when listening and watching it makes sense, but if you look at a transcript, it is harder to follow.
