Did you search single words you don't know in a Movie?

if you are learning a foreign language and when you are watching Movies in your target language , did you pause and search every single words you don't know in the movie or you just skip it? What's the good way to do..

Skipping is not really a good idea for a language learner. When I watch a movie in a language other than my native I generally note down the uncommon words and look them up on the internet and when I get the idea then I move on to next part.


you could skip a part for the time being but by that way, it's barely possible to understand the rest of the movie.So Pause a video thousand times is way better than skipping that video.

And don't translate words into your native. Try to find the equivalent word that you're looking for in your target language.

I think we should always translate the words. That's the way we learn them. :)
