English with ESL Movies

There are short movies and film series that are made specifically for ESL (English as a Second Language) students.
Watching these types of movies are great for improving your English because you not only hear native speakers speak, but there are subtitles that you can read to help you understand what they are saying. So you are training your eyes and ears at the same time!

Another great thing about this type of learning is that you can pause and also go back or forwards to certain parts that you want to focus on. This can help you to research certain words or phrases that you may not be familiar with.

Below I have a list of resources you can visit to watch ESL movies. The list will be updated as I discover more resources! If you know of something or discover something that is not on this list, feel free to drop me a line (write me an email) at englishreaderetc@gmail.com and let me know!
