  • How Can You Learn Languages with Netflix?

  • As adults, we are great at learning languages with well-structured lessons.

  • We can make a lot of progress by taking classes, using flashcards, or learning with a comprehensive language-learning program like Ouino.

  • But we often forget to reinforce everything we learn in our lessons by including the language in our lives in many other ways.

  • The most successful language learners will immerse themselves in any way they can.

  • Watching a lot of television is an excellent way to do so, but where can you find content in your target language?

  • One magic word: Netflix.

  • In the last few years, Netflix has seen unprecedented growth.

  • Netflix constantly releases an unbelievable amount of content; a total of 54 Netflix originals will debut in March 2018!

  • That's an incredible amount of language-learning content to binge on!

  • Watching television shows and movies in the language you are learning is an awesome way to include the language in your life.

  • Netflix has an increasing number of foreign shows and lots of translations to help you out.

  • In this post, we will show you how to use Netflix to help you learn languages.

  • Finding Material in Your New Language.

  • If you've tried to use television to learn languages in the past, you may have noticed that it's not always easy to find shows in your target language.

  • Even with Netflix, you can choose random titles, and click on the language icon to see if it's available in the language of your choice.

  • Many of them are not, so this is not very practical.

  • Fortunately, there's a way that makes it really easy to find all the shows that are available in a given language, either as an original or a dubbed version.

  • Simply open your web browser and type the following in the address bar: netflix.com/browse/audio

  • Once you have logged in to your account, you'll see a language drop-down menu.

  • Simply choose your target language in the list of available languages.

  • Let's say you're learning German; all you have to do is select it in the drop-down menu and you'll see all the available German titles.

  • There are hundreds of titles available in many languages.

  • Let's take a look at the different ways you can use those titles.

  • Watching Dubbed Content You Have Already Seen in English.

  • As a beginner, it can be helpful to choose something that you have already seen in English to help you understand better.

  • Let's say you were of huge fan of "Stranger Things" and watched the whole series twice already.

  • Simply select it and it will start playing in your preferred language.

  • In order to change the language, just click on the language icon at the bottom, choose German, and Boom!

  • You can watch the whole series again in German and make awesome progress.

  • It can give you a reason to watch a series you love again, completely guilt free, because you are actually learning a language at the same time.

  • It can also be an excellent idea to watch your favorite childhood movies in your new language.

  • Family movies are often easier to understand, and since you know them by heart, it will be a breeze to follow along.

  • Using Foreign Subtitles When Watching in English.

  • This is not nearly as effective, but let's face it, you want to make the language part of your life, but you likely won't stop watching movies in English altogether.

  • Sometimes it's nice to just sit back and understand the movie without having to concentrate on every single line of dialogue.

  • But as you comfortably watch the movie in English, why not put the subtitles in your target language?

  • By doing so, you will often find your eyes wanting to read the subtitles as you hear the English equivalent.

  • So every time you watch something in English, turn on those foreign subtitles.

  • While it may not be the most effective method of learning, you will definitely learn a few words.

  • If you don't put them there, you will learn zero words in your new language.

  • It's a small change that doesn't require much effort on your part.

  • Using foreign subtitles when watching foreign material is also very effective, but unfortunately, you must find subtitles that are closed captions, which are quite rare.

  • If they are not closed captions, the audio and subtitles won't always match perfectly, and it will be quite confusing.

  • Find Material That Matches Your Current Skill Level.

  • Watching television to learn languages is great, but you must choose material that is appropriate for your current skill level.

  • If you're a beginner in your new language, there is really no point of watching a complicated political drama, especially if you haven't watched it before.

  • You'll likely just zone out, and you won't be able to focus in a way that can be productive.

  • If you're a beginner, why not choose material aimed at young children?

  • Sure, the story will be childish, but you'd be surprised by how much you can learn.

  • Learn to choose material that is slightly above your current skill level in the language.

  • However, if you can't even understand preschool shows, you might want to spend a bit more time studying the language before television can be truly effective for learning.

  • Learning a language is all about immersing yourself as much as possible, and watching Netflix shows is an excellent way to do so!

  • If you keep taking your lessons every day, and use Netflix to reinforce what you learn, you should see drastic improvements in your language skills in no time.

  • Have fun watching awesome shows in your new language!
