  • ways to make understanding English fun with TV series.

  • So that said, all the time

  • English learners from around the world just like you asked me "what is the best

  • TV series to learn English with?"

  • Well as you probably know as the hosts of this

  • channel I absolutely love watching TV series and this probably makes me a

  • little bit of an expert.

  • Now, I know this might sound like a simple question but

  • it's actually quite complex because first of all it depends on a variety of

  • factors such as what is your current level, what are your personal preferences

  • what are your English learning goals and so on.

  • And in addition to this there are

  • tons of series out there to choose from and they're making new ones all the time.

  • So that said I still really want to help you to answer this question and so I

  • have made a list of the best series to learn English with in 2020.

  • Now these are all series that I've actually personally watched over the last year and I've

  • tried to kind of mix them up to give you a variety so that no matter where you

  • are or what your English learning goals are be it learning English for business,

  • learning English for law, learning English for science or just learning

  • English to be able to have an everyday conversation you are bound to find

  • something that you're going to love in this list and of course since I've

  • watched all of these personally over the last year I know that they are all going to

  • be super fun and entertaining for you.

  • By the way if you're new here every week we

  • make fun lessons to help you to understand your favorite TV series

  • without getting lost without missing the jokes and without

  • subtitles like Mariane who says that our lessons give her the perfect mix of

  • fun and learning so that she can understand everything.

  • And if you want to greatly improve your English comprehension and confidence all you

  • have to do is hit that subscribe button and the bell down below so you don't miss

  • any of our new lessons.

  • All right so now let's take a look at the best series to learn English with in 2020.

  • Number 10

  • Stranger Things.

  • Something is coming, something hungry for blood.

  • What is it?

  • The Demogorgon.

  • We're in deep shit.

  • Later

  • See you tomorrow.

  • -Good night, ladies. -Kiss your mum night for me.

  • Now guys this one is super entertaining, it's fun and

  • it is definitely a must watch that you can catch on Netflix.

  • Now the reason that

  • I love this one is because it's super unique in that it kind of it's a

  • nostalgia of the 80s first of all, you know I was born in the 80s I grew up

  • with a lot of the pop culture of that era so if you're similar that you grew

  • up with these things you're definitely going to love that aspect of it.

  • But even if you didn't, it's got a fresh young cast and one of the things that

  • makes it really great is that you're kind of waiting for monsters to pop out

  • so it's kind of a thriller and then at the same time it blends in elements of

  • comedy so I think this kind of combination kind of keeps you

  • entertained throughout the entire first season.

  • Now last year the season 3 came

  • out and frankly I wasn't even sure if I was going to watch it because season 2

  • was definitely disappointing it didn't really deliver on everything that we

  • loved about season 1 but eventually I decided to give it a try and watch

  • season 3 and it did not disappoint.

  • It brought back everything that we loved

  • about season 1 while also bringing new villains and a whole new plot so it goes

  • without saying that I'm definitely looking forward to watching season 4 and

  • I highly recommend that you check out this series.

  • Number 9.

  • Rick and Morty

  • Now, are you ready to laugh I mean like really laugh so hard that your ribs hurt?

  • Well Rick and Morty is a perfect show for this.

  • If you enjoy animated series

  • this one is definitely different than what you might be accustomed to with the

  • likes of SpongeBob SquarePants or The Simpsons.

  • Now what this series does

  • because it takes very complex scientific theories or philosophy and kind of

  • explains it in a very accessible way but what makes Rick and Morty unique is

  • definitely the characters that we have here the old man Rick who is kind of a

  • crazy insane scientist who doesn't really care what anyone thinks of him

  • and Morty who is a timid young boy who just loves helping out his grandfather.

  • Now this is fantastic for your English because you will learn idioms and

  • expressions, vocabulary the natives use in everyday life while at the same time

  • having the opportunity to learn a lot of vocabulary that is specific to science.

  • So in conclusion you're both equally mercurial overly sensitive clingy

  • hysterical birdbrain humonculon and I honestly can't even tell the two of you

  • apart half the time because I don't go by height or age,

  • I go by amount of pain in my ass,

  • which makes you both identical.

  • However, I should warn you that this series is not for everyone.

  • The humor in it can be dark and sometimes even

  • offensive but if you want to get a taste of what this series is all about then

  • you can check out this fun lesson that we made with it by clicking up at the

  • top right of the screen.

  • Number eight.

  • Friends

  • Now if you've been following us then you know this is one of our favorite series.

  • Now I know that you're probably asking yourself "what the heck is Friends, such

  • an old series from the 90s, doing on a top ten list for 2020?"

  • Well the reason that I include this one is that I actually

  • rewatched the whole ten seasons last

  • year in 2019 and I have to tell you I laughed a ton and I fell in love all

  • over again with all of the characters and their stories.

  • It definitely has not lost any of its relevance.

  • Check out what Selena Gomez recently said about it:

  • You know what makes me so happy is that I would watch

  • it on channel 33 at 10:30 every night on Thursday with my mom.

  • -Yes -And I cried

  • when the whole season was over but what made me so happy is like now now like

  • people my age and everyone else is just obsessed and it just makes me so happy

  • for you and for the show because it's iconic.

  • Oh god I love you.

  • And other fans that you might know about include Taylor Swift.

  • I watch endless Friends marathons for comfort.

  • Harry Styles,

  • First question is: "Sing your favorite TV show theme tune".

  • What should we do?

  • "So noone told you life was gonna be this way"

  • "Your job's a joke, you're broke Your love life's D.O.A"

  • And the lead singer of the popular k-pop band, BTS.

  • How did you teach yourself English?

  • Um actually my English teacher was a sitcom, Friends,

  • Oh you watched Friends!

  • Yes.

  • So was it mainly just phrases then?

  • Or you just learned everything?

  • Um, I think you know back in the days like when I was like 15, like 14 it was quite

  • like a syndrome for all the Korean parents to make their kids watch the Friends.

  • -Really? -So, yeah.

  • For...I thought I was kind of like a victim at that time

  • but well right now I'm the lucky one so like thanks my mother she

  • she bought that all the other seasons for DVDs, it got 10 DVDs, right?

  • Right.

  • So about me, and so firstly I watched with the Korean subtitle and the next

  • time I watched with the English subtitle and then i just removed it.

  • That's very impressive and Friends would be very happy that you learned

  • Thank you!

  • And there's probably no series out there that is better for learning English.

  • In fact, various academic studies have actually shown that this is probably the best

  • series that has ever been made for learning English.

  • Now this has to do with

  • kind of the storyline, you know friends spending a lot of time sitting around in

  • a cafe speaking about life's everyday problems but it also just has to do with

  • this having such a huge influence on the english as it's spoken today.

  • So if you would love to learn English with Friends and have a ton of fun doing it well

  • there's no better way than with our Fluent with Friends course, now in this

  • forty eight week course you will learn alongside the first two seasons getting

  • all the vocabulary, pronunciation and cultural context that you need to fully

  • Number seven: Succession.

  • Everything I've done in my life

  • I've done for my children I know I've made mistakes but I've always tried to

  • do the best final because I love them.

  • Maybe you thought about the possibility

  • that your children are actually scared of you?

  • Oh fuck off!

  • Succession tells the story of a not so typical family called the Roy's let's

  • see exactly why.

  • This is my vision, I take over, you two under me.

  • Under you.

  • Let me think about it?

  • -Of course. -I thought about it, fuck you.

  • This family's broken and that has consequences.

  • Kick out the old man, him with the new guard.

  • Where've you been?

  • I was meeting about a prospective job.

  • With your father's enemy?

  • Disagreeing with dad is not treason.

  • You want this enough to go to war with your family.

  • Now, the reason that this series is on the list is not only because it's super entertaining

  • but I recommend it for you because it is great for learning business English

  • let's take a look at an example of some of the typical sort of vocabulary that

  • you'll learn for business, be careful because the series does include a lot of

  • vulgar language which is a part of real-life English but if you prefer not

  • to see that then you might want to skip over this example.

  • Yeah I'll take it

  • so all they need is adults in the room accounting team, analytics team and

  • investment we burned 50 million for a few years we, we make it the best thing

  • in the world.

  • Oh is that all?

  • But you always say "got a burn to turn".

  • Well, that's what's your read.

  • And you know it's interesting dad because I hear

  • everything he's saying and it actually it almost sounds like a good pitch but I

  • call bullshit I spent some time down there and I'm just not seeing it I don't

  • know exactly what they're doing but they're fakes

  • fucking beehives almond milk and take another week on that report, Matilda it

  • smells wrong and they're hiding shit.

  • Oh.

  • Now this series is a drama with a little

  • bit of comedy and it has won a bunch of awards such as the Golden Globe for Best Drama.

  • You can check out succession on HBO.

  • Number six: The Crown.

  • We're ready for you, your Majesty.

  • Three, two, one.

  • This is Jubilee day, this is a day of grueling as the Queen's

  • coronation 25 years ago.

  • Now with this one let's head over to England

  • because this series is perfect for learners of British English now it's all

  • about the history of Queen Elizabeth the second, the current Queen of England and

  • the Royal Family as she came to power.

  • Now the reason we include it in this list

  • is because it uses a classic sort of British English called received

  • pronunciation, which is likely what you need to learn if you're learning British English.

  • If that man wins, he'll want us out.

  • This is no longer peacetime

  • This country was still great when I came to the throne, all that's happened on my

  • watch is the place is falling apart.

  • You cannot flinch any falling apart if

  • we say it is, that's the thing about the monarchy we paper over the cracks.

  • Now if you enjoyed this series and the language that you can learn in it then you might

  • also want to check out Downton Abbey.

  • Number five: Suits.

  • Why don't we go out and celebrate?

  • We're all on the same boat now.

  • I'm taking full control as Managing partner.

  • Are you serious?

  • From now on it's are you serious ma'am, have you got that, pretty boy?

  • What you said about us working together.

  • I appreciate it.

  • -Thanks, Robin. -Oh you welcome, Batman.

  • Now coming from The Crown in England you

  • might have heard of Megan Markle, who married recently into the royal family

  • now she's one of the main actresses in this next series.

  • Mike Ross?

  • Hi, I'm Rachel Zane, I'll be giving your orientation.

  • Wow, you're pretty.

  • needs to learn legal vocabulary let's take a look at some examples.

  • Celebratory drinks with the associates?
