I think that it will be better if you watch your lovely movie or movie, content of which is well known for you :) 

As the same English learner as you, if you don't care about accent, any English movie is fine. If not, TV series are better than movies. 

American English: gossip girl, Grimm, Brothers and Sisters ( given the fact that your intention is to improve speaking English, I don't recommend Prison Break, though I'm a big fan of it)

British English: hustle, Sherlock (new BBC mini TV series)


Great Movie Musicals make for great Lesson Materials for learning English


These are not arranged in a special order, such as "best" or anything like that.





"Oliver!" 1968


"My Fair Lady!" 1964



"The Music Man" 1962


"West Side Story" 1961 (based upon William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet")


"Camelot" 1967


"State Fair" 1962


"The King and I" 1956


"Mary Poppins" 1964

Crazy Stupid Love


As an english learner I can tell you that any movie can be very helpfull.


I use this approach - get the films with english subtitles.

The fisrt time I see the film with subtitles for identify the context and try to identify the expressions. Then I make a review of the vocabulary and expressions and finally I repeat the film two or three times - without subtitles - for improve the hearing skills.


I don't speak english, maybe I make a lot of mistakes in sentences, but this procedure helps a lot to understand what the people is talking about -
