Language learning tips

19 Sep

Seth Roberts posts some language learning tips from Carl Willat. I liked this one:

“Movies with subtitles. English movies with Chinese subtitles, Chinese movies with English subtitles, or Chinese movies with Chinese subtitles. Especially movies you’ve seen before so you know the plot and have a vague idea what’s being said. Reading and hearing at the same time seems to help your brain get some traction. “

An excuse to watch more Zatōichi movies!
