    Re: need some series and movies

    Thanks for fix my bad english
    About your answer I realy dont care.
    It can be American, British, Australian, etc ..
    The importent thing that it will be in medium level English.
    For example the series "Big Bang Theory" it too hard.
    I can't understand it so well without subtitle for my language...
    So i prefer something little bit lighter then that.
    Mybe it can be at level as a Game Of Thrones that was a little hard but it was understandable even without subtitle for my language.
    so it can be at this level.
    Thanks a lot!!!

    About In answer to your answer question, I really don't care. It can be American, British, Australian, etc.
    The important thing is that it will be is in medium-level English. For example, the series "The Big Bang Theory" it is too hard for me. I can't understand it so well without subtitles for in my language,
    so I would prefer something a little bit lighter easier then than that.
    Maybe it can could be at the same level as a "Game Of Thrones". That was a little hard but it was understandable even without subtitles. for my language.
    so it can be at this level.
    Thanks a lot!
    I'm surprised you could understand "Game of Thrones" without subtitles but well done!

    Please note my corrections above. It's important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Always capitalise proper nouns. (English, America, Shakespeare, Microsoft etc.)
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Check your spelling carefully. If your browser has a spellchecker set to English, it will underline spelling errors in red. Take care with the difference between "then" and "than".

    You could try some soap operas too - they usually use fairly simple language. Try "Neighbours" (Australian). Some British soaps have quite strong regional accents - "EastEnders" (south/east London), "Coronation Street" (Manchester) so might be a little difficult. If you can track down old series, you could try "Dallas" (American).
    Comedy can be quite hard to follow (as you found with "The Big Bang Theory") because lines are spoken quickly and the rhythm is used for comic effect. There are also a lot of puns which can be hard for non-natives to understand.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Comedy also includes lots of topical references which can be incomprehensible to foreigners.

    Regarding regional accents: EastEnders is in a foreign language to this American's ears. It often resembles English, but not closely enough for me to glean much meaning from it.
    I am not a teacher.

    "How I Met Your Mother", "Friends", "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", "Scrubs" are really funny.
