    Re: Hi

    Freesmile,

    I try to read a book every now and then And when I'm watching a movie I oblige myself not to read the subtitles. We Belgians have the advantage that we don't dub movies and series on tv or in the movie theatre. The Germans and the French tend to dub every foreign film, serie, soap or cartoon shown on tv.
    I only apply the subtitles when a word appears I don't understand

    To my mind, dubbing is an awful thing.

    Kind regards

    watching movies/cartoons are helpful when learning a language because they can give you an ear for the language. You can study the stress and intonation of the words as well as picking up idioms and slang words.
