What study tools do you need to better view films?
It’s important to try to watch the films and cartoons in an active and not only a passive way. What does this mean? It means forcing yourself to hear (and I mean really hear) and analyze the words you’re listening to. Keep at hand an exercise book (or your smartphone or tablet) to note down the new vocabulary or idiomatic phrases that you want to check or summarize. Watching the films with subtitles (better in English if that is possible) is always a good idea so you can work out where the new words are. Obviously it’s also nice to have a dictionary of some sort with you (or use a smartphone).
