Finally a way of finding German movies to Learn
Watching German shows or movies can help you tremendously. It will help you improving your listening comprehension, help you understand faster, get the practical side of the language and so much more. After all, hearing the real language was one of the biggest parts of learning your native language! And it is so much more fun than many other ways of learning, so you should start using this in addition to whatever you have been doing. I am talking about this in Episode 14 of the Better German Podcast.
The interactive German movie guide will help you to find interesting things to watch in German ON YOUR LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING. I suggest to you to start with Advanced Beginners and move to higher levels when you are ready. Use subtitles – ideally in your native language. Don’t worry if you spend a lot of time reading in the beginning. But if you do, maybe you want to watch the movie or episode twice.
