The characteristic of a movies helping to learn English? Are you agree with me?

I find it easier to learn so many English vocabulary and expressions and usage by watching movies. If you're a non-native English speaker, you probably noticed some of them that help you learn.
I think some movies have good (Expressions, usage, etc.) . I think some of the dialogue is quite intense. Great for English listening skill training if you watch it without subtitles.

Exercises for vocabulary building, listening, reading, grammar, conversation, and American culture. A challenging and enjoyable way to learn English.

  Yes, I think you are right Emir.   Many of the lyrics to songs in older  movie musicals

can be found by doing a websearch...     lyrics  +  "Name of Song"



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.

For me, it's more important to listen! personlly i used to watch the movie in french in order to understand the story. then, I watch it in english version with subtitles . finally , I remove the subtitles. I don't know if it is a good way for you! what do you think?
