如果你喜欢看剧，为什么不打开你正在学习的语言的字幕呢？ (或者是否有完整的音频？)你可以获取世界各地的一流影视材料—推荐你看看法文的“ La Haine”，韩文的“ Parasite”或西班牙文的Almodóvar。
62% of British people only speak English but many of us would like to learn a second language.
Now is your opportunity! Having a good grasp of a second language is also an in-demand work skill. There are some creative ways to learn.
Pick a Language you have a reason to learn
Was there a language at school you have a start in you would like to pick up again, or do you want to try something totally new? From a work-skills perspective - Spanish is the official language of over 21 countries, making it the most spoken language after English and Mandarin Chinese.
Use an App
The most common first step. Many apps like Babbel or DuoLingo have a free level and are fun to use. They work on the scientific basis that the best way to learn is with a little regular practice at intervals, and use gamification to keep you engaged.
Join a Class
Even if we can't physically go to college at the moment, find out if there are online classes you can join - this could be as simple as a self-organising group sharing resources, or a structured paid for class with tutorials, homework and exams.
Take it Slow
Training your ear to understand native-level speech takes time. There are lots of other language videos on sites like youtube that you can play these videos at slower than normal speed to help you catch what is meant. You can also get audio-books in a second language and play it slow - maybe start with a book you already know well.
Turn on Subtitles
If you are stuck in having a DVD marathon anyway, why not switch on subtitles in the language you are learning? (or maybe the whole audio track if available?) You can open yourself up to a whole world of great films - check out 'La Haine' in french, 'Parasite' in Korean, or the films of Almodóvar in Spanish.
Hold the Front Page
Check the headlines in the online versions of foreign-language newspapers in your target language. If you are looking to relocate for work, or visit a place on holiday, this is also a great way to become familiar with nuances of everyday language and local events.
