For those who have been using LingoPie for a while, have you noticed an improvement in your listening skills? Are you using subtitles less? Can you understand more?
Let me know. I’m trying out the platform for one week and I would love to read about some success stories.
Sometimes, I fear watching TV in a foreign language because it feels like no matter how hard I try, I just can’t get past a certain level. So, I would like to hear from you guys, to see how this platform has worked out for you.
Look forward to reading your stories.
Even though learning with TV may not seem as effective as other methods, in my experience it really worked. I learned Spanish through music and tv shows.
My suggestion is to start watching some episodes with both English and Spanish subtitles.
After watching a few episodes, (and getting a sense of the show’s context ) you can watch the same episodes with Spanish subtitles. Click on as many words you feel are needed to understand a sentence. The more words you click the more you will learn.
The most important thing is to have fun and choose a show that interests you.
Learning through TV you will hear real native speaking the language and you will learn dialects, accent, way of saying, the culture and much more!!
