What do you think about TV series as a way to learn english?

I've watch some TV series and I learn something doing that, about pronuntiation and the expressions ¿? 

So, what do you think about it?

I think so. It can stimulate audio and visual memory,and your vocabulary and pronouncation  can be unconsciously influenced.By the way, i am into pronunciations of the roles in "Desperate House wife".

"Well It's kind a big help to learn foreign language by TV series, but sometimes they don't really use formal language... if you want to use it for improve your public speaking, its kinda help.... ^^... (By the way, I need a solution to improve my spelling here ^^ hehe)"

Well It's kind of a big help to learn a foreign language by watching TV series, but sometimes they (you should put "the tv series" or "it" because "they" is a word usually used for anything that deals wtih people) don't doesn't really use formal language... if you want to use it for improve your public speaking, its it kinda ( kinda is a slang for kind of, it is not a real word, though im sure you already know this) help helps.... ^^...

That is a great way to learn English.

A few things you have to be aware of by learning English using this method. Assuming you are watching American TV shows, a majority of American television is spoken in a Californian/Western (not cowboy or wild wild west) accent. You may have a hard time with other English Accents. I am from California and can understand Southern and Texas accent but I have a hard time understanding the Boston and Brooklyn accent. There will be close to zero slang on American television so you still need to talk to a native speaker to speak English very well in everyday settings. Learning English solely from the television will still give you the ability to speak English to everyone but dont be surprise if people correct you or think your use of grammar to be funny.
