    Thanks in advance.
    First, please see the corrections I have made to your post in red. It is important to follow the rules of written English:

    - Start very sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).

    Now I will move on to your question. You asked "Should I learn English with movies?" The answer is no. You should learn English at classes and by studying at home on your own, using grammar books and exercises and online resources.
    You can practise and hone your English using TV shows, movies, radio broadcasts, podcasts and any other form of English you can find. People learn in different ways so you will have to work out what is best for you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please don't refer to me as "mate". I am not being rude but we have never met and we are not friends. You can simply refer to me by my username.

    I gave you at least 5 good writing tips in my last post. I suggest you read them and actually follow them. For example, in this post, you failed to capitalise the word "I" and you put a space before a full stop. I have underlined those errors above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
