看电影学英语的5个绝佳妙招

Today we’re going to go over my top 5 tips for learning English with movies and TV. Many people successfully learn English this way, and the great thing about it is that you’re learning something in context, not isolated like in a vocabulary list.

今天我想跟大家分享看电视电影学英语的5个绝佳妙招。很多人通过这种方法熟练掌握英语,这样学习的好处在于,你可以结合语境,而不是单纯照着词表背单词。

And this will really help you remember it. In addition, you’re learning from a native speaker, so your pronunciation should be much more accurate than if you’re learning from a book if you do it right.

这样学习记得更牢。而且你还可以直接跟母语者学习,只要方法得当,这样学到的发音会精确很多,远胜光靠书本默读。

But learning English from movies and TV does NOT happen automatically. Unless you’re using the tips I’m about to teach you, you won’t be learning as much English as you could.

不过看电视电影学英语也不是无师自通的,大家运用我教的窍门,学习效果会更好。

But if you DO make these tips a part of your regular movie and TV watching habits, you’ll have a powerful new learning tool that’s always available to you! Now, this is not about relaxing and unwinding watching TV or a movie, this is about learning. It’s an active experience, part of your studies.

如果你能将这些窍门融汇到日常观影习惯中,就掌握了一项语言学习的新利器。请注意,你不能抱着放松身心,舒缓精神的心态来观影。这是在学英语,要付出努力,这是学习过程的一部分。

Let’s get started. Tip 1:  Work at your level. If listening comprehension is a big challenge for you, and you want to work on that specifically, start with a simple scene involving just a few people in a quiet environment.

我们开始吧!第一个窍门: 量力而为,如果听力对你来说比较困难,你想重点锻炼一下,那就从人物较少,相对安静的场景开始。

I really like dramas because I think in general the pace of speaking is a little slower. HER is a great movie for this: slow pace, clear speech. “What’s the rush?” That was relatively easy to understand.

我很喜欢剧情类影片,因为相对来讲语速较慢《她》这部电影非常合适,语速慢、发音清晰。”着什么急?”比较容易听懂吧。

If your listening comprehension is very good and you’re just looking to pick up new vocabulary or phrases, or you want to challenge your listening comprehension, you can do this by trying a scene in a noisy room, or a scene where people are speaking with a non-standard accent.

如果你的听力已经很好,想学习新的词汇和表达。或者进一步提升难度,挑战自我,可以选择环境嘈杂的场景,或者角色讲话带口音的影视作品。

“It’s that or we both better go do something else, pal.” That was likely much harder to understand. So, work at a level that’s right for you. One that’s not so challenging that you understand almost nothing.

“就得这样,不然咱们只能改行了,哥们儿”这样大概比较难懂。总之,要根据自己的水平量力而为,不要选几乎完全听不懂的素材。

Tip 2:  Use a video player that has the right tools: a toggle for subtitles and a way to easily skip back in the video. Both Netflix and HBO Go have these features, and no they did not pay me to say this.

第二个窍门: 选择合适的播放工具,可以通过控制栏调出字幕快进快退那种。网飞和HBO Go的界面都有这种功能,我不是在帮他们打广告啦!

On YouTube, you can do a search on a topic that interests you, and filter it so you’ll only see videos with a closed captioning file.

你也可以在油管上搜索自己感兴趣的话题,运用过滤器筛选带官方字幕的视频。

But the YouTube player doesn’t have a way to easily jump back a few seconds like Netflix or HBO Go, they have a skip back 10 seconds button and I think if you can afford a subscription to one of those services, it’s really useful.

不过油管视频播放器不太容易快退,不能像网飞和HBO Go那样退后几秒,那两家有后退十秒的按钮,所以我觉得经济条件允许的话下可以考虑订阅一下,很有帮助。

Let’s go on to tip 3 to see why. Tip 3:  Use subtitles and the following method to learn. Step 1 is to listen without the subtitles. When you hear something you don’t understand, or a word you don’t know and it’s okay if that’s pretty frequent, pause the player.

你也可以在油管上搜索自己感兴趣的话题,运用过滤器筛选带官方字幕的视频。不过油管视频播放器不太容易快退,不能像网飞和HBO Go那样退后几秒。

Go back 10 seconds and listen again, pause it. Can you figure it out? Write down as much of the sentence as you can in a notebook that you have just for this purpose. Use an app if you like, but I prefer writing by hand.

那两家有后退十秒的按钮,所以我觉得经济条件允许的话下可以考虑订阅一下,很有帮助。这回听出来了吗?把听出来的全部记下来,专门准备一个笔记本记录这些,手机应用当然也行,我比较喜欢手写。

Then, turn on the English subtitles and go back and listen again. Listen and watch with the subtitles on. Now, maybe the part you didn’t get is a brand new word that you’ve never seen or heard before. Great, this is an awesomeway to learn new vocabulary.

之后打开字幕,倒回去再听一遍,带字幕重新看一遍,或许你没听懂的是个生词,之前没有碰到过。这很好,这样积累词汇也不错。

Write the word down, look up the definition, and write down the sentence you heard it in. Even write down the show or the movie and the scene. Remembering this context will absolutely help you remember the word. But maybe when you go back and watch with the subtitles you realize you know all those words.

把这个生词记下来,查字典,把整句都记下来。最好把剧集或电影还有相应场景也记下来,记录语境绝对有助于你牢记这个单词,不过当你带字幕回放之后也有可能发现所有单词都认识。

Why didn’t you understand it? That’s a very important question and answering it is the key to improving your listening comprehension. Perhaps the phrase was said very quickly and there were reductions in there that made it very hard to identify the word.

怎么就是没听懂?这个问题很重要,解决这个难题是提高听力的关键所在,是不是语速过快。

Or maybe a word has a pronunciation that’s completely different than what you thought. Write down the full sentence now and circle the words you didn’t understand. Then use the skip back button to listen many times… five, maybe even more.

或者句中有略读现象,使得某个单词很难辨析。又或者某个单词的发音与你预想的完全不一样,把整句都写下来圈出没听懂的单词,用快退键反复播放… 重听五次,甚至更多。

Something was pronounced in a way that you were not expecting. Study how the native speaker pronounces it. Importantly, say the phrase out loud yourself a few times, imitating the native speaker as precisely as you can.

看看哪些单词的读音出乎你的意料,仔细聆听母语者如何发音。更重要的是,要自己大声读几遍,尽量模仿母语者的发音。

Write down the correct pronunciation in your notebook. Maybe even take it a step further: Go to Youglish.com and type the word or phrase you didn’t understand. Hear lots of other examples of native speakers using that word or phrase, and pay attention.

把正确的发音记在本子里,或者还可以更进一步,登陆Youglish.com网站,输入你没听懂的这个单词或表达,寻找别的范例,仔细听其他母语者如何发音。

Is it reduced? Why was it so hard for you to understand the first time? This kind of work will really pay off. Youglish is a search engine for YouTube videos with English subtitles and you can filter it to American English, and skip from clip to clip.

是略读了吗?一开始为什么没听出来?这样的努力肯定会有成效,Youglish网站可以搜索自带英字的油管视频,还可以选择美式英语,多个视频换着听。

You can also move forward or backward within a clip to get the full context. It’s a great way to supplement your learning. Just like in the movies, I did a quick costume change.

还能在同一视频中快进或快退,获得完整语境,对英语学习很有帮助,就像拍电影一样,我换了套戏服。

Tip 4:  Review it! If you’ve taken the time to do the work of watching, pausing, writing down sentences, vocab words, and the context you learned them in, then do yourself a favor and solidify that learning.

第四个诀窍: 复习!既然你已经花了这么多功夫观看、暂停、做笔记、积累单词、记录语境了,一定要巩固学习成果才对得起自己的努力。

Keep your English in Movies notebook close by so if you have a bit of extra time, waiting for an appointment, or on your commute, or during your lunch break, you can remind yourself what you learned yesterday.

看电影学英语专用笔记本要随身携带,这样你一有空闲时间。比如等待约见、通勤或午休,就可以趁机复习前一天所学的知识。

If you learned a new vocabulary word, try to come up with your own sentences for it now. Practice speaking your new words and phrases out loud whenever possible.

如果学到新词汇,可以尝试用它造句,抓住一切机会放声使用这些词汇或表达。

And Tip 5:  Set manageable goals for yourself. Don’t try to learn 100 new words or phrases a day. That’s too many. Make it your goal to really learn 5 or 6. When you learn them in context and review them for seven days, that will get you good results.

第五个诀窍: 切勿好高骛远。别妄想一天学会100个生词,那太多了,学5个、6个就够了。结合语境,复习七天,学习效果一定不错。

Trying to learn too many too often means very little being remembered and leads to burnout. This method I’ve given you is time-consuming, but it is concrete and you will really learn this way.

太过急功近利效果反而不好,最后记住的不多,而且会搞得自己精疲力尽。我教大家的这个方法非常耗时耗力,但也坚实可靠,保证你学有所获。

If you’ve gotten 5 or 10 good word or phrases in the first few minutes of a show or movie, reward yourself! Close your notebook and watch the rest for enjoyment and pleasure.

如果你刚看几分钟就学到了5到10个实用词汇或表达,就犒赏自己吧!合上笔记本,尽情享受接下来的观影体验。
