English is not my first language but I have been exposed to it since I was a child because our country is also an English speaking country. I just want to share an advice given to me by my English Language tutor before, he told me that in order for me to practice my skills in the language I should keep watching films and shows which utilize the English language. They will not only enhance my vocabulary and pronunciation, but they will also enhance my listening skills in English. I have proven it to be effective when I finally took the International English Language Testing System. As they say, practice makes perfect so I really put my heart into practicing the English Language including having to give up watching my favorite local shows so I could concentrate on my English practice.
How do you see watching shows and films which are purely English based as a way of helping improve one's skills in the English language? Do you see it being a helpful tool or not?
