When I study English, I also like watching American Hollywood movies. The movies are very good and activate my enthusiasm for learning English. Therefore, learning Chinese can also be an effective way to understand Chinese culture by watching Chinese movies.
Here I want to tell you what movie to watch and how to watch it.
1. What movie do you watch?
The principle is simple and easy to understand. It is best to watch cartoons for children, because the words are simple and the plot is interesting. It seems that it can be understood without too much thinking. Is the most effective understandable input.
Here are some good programs recommended. You can search in any video website.
“Cute chicken team” tells the story of four cute chicken babies growing up together with other small animals under the care of their mother. Cute chickens help each other and explore nature with friends in the forest. This cartoon can not only let children appreciate the mysteries of nature, but also learn many good qualities from cute chickens.
“Chinese character man · magical Chinese character planet” tells the story of the Chinese character God and his five students “Jiabao, Jinbao, zhuanbao, Libao and Kaibao” forming a team called “Chinese character man”, looking for the lost mother character wizard and Chinese character baby, and fighting against the bad Mr. White character. This cartoon can let children learn Chinese characters while watching.
“Bear haunt” tells a funny story about the forest protector Brother Bear and the skinhead who destroys the forest and fells logs. The whole cartoon is relaxed and humorous. It can let children learn to help each other, be good at thinking when encountering difficulties, protect the environment and so on.
“Big head son and small head father” tells about a family of three, big head son, small head father and apron mother. In their ordinary life, there are always happy laughter. The warmth between families is plain and real, which can let children learn how to express love, how to face suffering, how to respect others and so on.
2. How to watch?
The movie is interesting, but you can’t watch it all at once. What is the best way?
For example, watch the first episode three times, or watch the next episode after a week. What to do when watching? For the first time, watch the subtitles first, and for the second time, turn off the subtitles for the third time, and turn off the subtitles for the fourth time. Watch and listen while listening. If you don’t understand, you can open the subtitles for confirmation.
If it is a movie, the time is generally 90 minutes. It is recommended to watch 20 minutes each time. Cut a film into five segments. Focus on 20 minutes at a time. Turn off the subtitles, turn on the subtitles and listen again.
This is the correct way to learn by watching movies and TV programs.
3. What to do after watching Chinese movies?
After watching, you can try to retell the content of the story and say the plot of the film in Chinese.
After learning Chinese in this way, your Chinese level will certainly improve. But learning Chinese depends on persistence.
