August 6, 2010, Newsletter Issue #92: Domestic Movies with a Foreign Twist

Tip of the Week

Although foreign films are a great way to get some listening comprehension practice and learn about a foreign culture, not everyone is into the foreign film scene. If you're bored by Bergman and confused by Kurosawa, here's a trick you can try. Most popular DVD movie titles have alternate dialog tracks that dub the movie in different languages. If you're learning Spanish or German of French chances are you can just turn on that sound track and enjoy old favorites in your new language. You won't learn as much culture that way, but you will ge some decent listening practice.
