The methods I talk about are Ted Talks, TV series, films, Netflix and Duo Lingo. Hope you enjoy! Ted Talks: https://www.ted.com/talks Netflix: https://www.netflix.com Duo Lingo: https://www.duolingo.com Transcript Hey everyone it's Matt here and in this video we are going to be looking at three ways in which you can improve your English using technology. The first way and one of my favorites is ted talks. So the way ted talks works is that you have a professional person who could be an entrepreneur, a professor, an author, etc and they talk about their research or an opinion that they have. Now the great thing about ted talks is that one you can improve your listening skills and two you can learn something really interesting and the english is not too difficult to understand and there are subtitles available if you need them TEDTalks are an excellent way to improve your listening skills and what I often ask my students to do is write a summary of a specific talk which helps with improving writing skills and also helps you understand talk better in general Now over on my blog I've put up a video by an American psychologists and she talks about her research into the secrets of success and there are a couple of exercises too. Now if you're watching this on youtube to access to video you can click the link in the description box below. The second way is to watch English TV series and films, now they're excellent because you can really improve your listening skills in a fun way and nowadays most TVs can be changed to the English language without any problems whatsoever My favorite platform however is Netflix and I love Netflix because there's a huge range of English language programs so you can always find something that will interest you. Now we're going to look at a few British TV series and films and if you click over to the blog you can find a more extensive list of British films British documentaries and TV series as well. So the first when we're going to look at is a fantastic comedy series called Black Adder starring Rowan Atkinson aka Mr Bean and in the last three series Hugh Laurie aka dr. house Now there's four seasons in the series and each is set in a different historical time period and follows the very unlucky Edmund Blackadder now the first series is not great but series two three and four really really funny. The next one is Downton Abbey which is period drama set during the reign of King George the fifth and it follows a British aristocratic family from the north of England. Ok let's move on to films now and the first one is the King's Speech starring Colin this film is based on a true story about King George that the sixth's battle to overcome his speech impediment so he could speak in public this is a great feel-good film with some excellent acting in it and some great shots of London as well. Now if action is more your thing anything in the James Bond series is a good bet and in fact the new Spectre film came out just a couple of months ago. The last method that we're going to look at is using mobile phone apps to improve your English. Now mobile phone apps are fantastic because you can learn english pretty much anywhere and one of the best ones in my opinion is Duo Lingo and it's also completely free. Now the way Duo Lingo works is that at the beginning you will do a level test and then you will start learning English at the the appropriate level for you. Duo Lingo is fantastic for reading, writing, grammar and also listening as well and I've used it for my Spanish and it's been extremely useful. I'll put a link to the website in the Description box below so you can have a look.
