I'm an English learner.
[it is always understood that this phrase means learning English and not that you are an English person]
I honestly believe that almost all beginner English learners will receive suggestions to learn English by learning from songs or movies. This may be helpful.
Sometimes it is difficult for English learners not to understand whether the lyrics or the sub titles in movies grammatically correct or not when they are still novice learners.
In my opinion, the difficulty here is to find exactly the right songs movies that are easy to learn good vocabulary and grammar; so you must choose wisely. Also, you have to feel excited about which you choose.
Sometime I can't discern slang, colloquial expressions, or anything else in lyrics/ movies because I think the words (lyrics) are mostly not constructed in a grammatically correct manner, etc...
But this does not mean I don't watch movies in English and sing songs in English because that is my hobby even when I use it just to relax and not to learn English.
What's your opinion?
What has been your English-learning experience watching movies or listening to songs? Could you guys share some experienceS?
EL is not a word or a recognised abbreviation to write the English language it is always 'English' or 'The English language'
I am English and learning French.
Always remember this 'I am an English learner/student' and "I am a (your nationality learning/studying English/ or the language).
Then you will not go wrong.
There are only a few songs where the lyrics can be discussed with your teacher or in a class to learn a few natural phrases. This is true if you wish to study in an English school/college/university environment.
Many people do learn a language from films and songs but very really to higher school level. It can sometimes be a first step to beginning a journey into an academic environment in an English speaking country.
