Movies for Language Learning

Virtual ClassroomWatching movies reinforces linguistic acquisition skills. To find actual US television channels, please visit my Culture page and utilize the drop down menu in the top right-hand corner. If you currently find yourself outside of the United States, you will more than likely need to use a proxy server to view selected streaming videos. Otherwise, take advantage of a tracking site to view soap operas, situational comedies, and films.
