The Language-from-TV-series Project!

September 2, 2011

This project doesn’t require a long explanation:

  • Select a TV serie you love/like/find useful to learn English
  • Watch 1 episode a month, for instance, at least once a week: watch it in English and jot down Useful Language.
    OPTION B: watch, e.g. episode 1 in week 1, episode 2 in week 2, then again episode 1 in week 3, episode 2 in week 4, and so on… TIP: Don’t use subtitles the first 3 times you watch it. You want to develop an independent ear!
  • Collect and organize your sentences (show your teacher, just in case she spots any mistakes) and then record a podcast episode where you repeat twice each of those sentences
  • Share your work in class (Oral Presentation of your List) and send in for publication at the Talking People Podcast.

(About subtitles: please, don’t use  subtitles the first 2 or 3 times you watch an episode – train your ear become independent – life has no subtitles – subtitles in English should only be used to expand vocabulary)

Here is the clearest explanation of all: listen to Episode 001 of Everyday Language – Useful Language at the TP Podcast and here is the transcript. You should do something like this, OK? then you can think about whether you want to create an audio file with it, or else, a video!
