The first time you see a movie you have seen before, it may not feel like it.
After that, the sensation goes away.
But if you can enjoy a movie that you haven’t seen before with subtitles, then it can really make a difference to your life.
Here are some tips that can help you make the transition.1.
Use subtitles for more than just the subtitles on the screen.
If you have ever watched a movie or TV show that has a title that has no English subtitles, there is a good chance that you have tried to use the subtitles to understand the language.
It may seem a little awkward, but subtitles help you understand what the story is about.2.
Learn to use your eyes to make sense of the subtitles.
You can read the subtitles yourself, but if you’re using subtitles, you can use them to make more sense of what is happening.
For example, if the subtitles read, “The bees are in a hive”, this can be a clue that something has happened to the bees.
This can help your understanding of the story, so if you are having trouble with the story in the subtitles, use your own eyes to see what the bees are doing and why they are there.3.
Use the subtitles for the best possible picture.
For example, when you are watching a movie, you may think that the scene has to be in the center of the screen to be meaningful.
But when you can read it on the page, it makes it easier to see how things work.4.
Practice using the subtitles in everyday life.
If you are sitting at home or even on the subway or bus, try using them to translate what you are saying.
For instance, when the subtitles are talking about the smell of coffee in a cafe, this can help make it clear that coffee is being served in a cup.5.
Practice with a friend.
If using subtitles helps you understand the story better, it can also be beneficial if you have a friend who is not fluent in English.
Using the subtitles can help them understand what is going on in the story.
If your friend has not mastered the English language, this will also help you learn a lot of new vocabulary.6.
If a friend or family member is deaf, learn to read.
If a friend has difficulty reading English, try to practice reading with them in the background.
This will help them to hear the English subtitles better.7.
Practice reading with subtitles in a restaurant or coffee shop.
If there is an opening menu on a restaurant, try reading the menu to get a feel for what you can expect to see.
It can also help to read aloud subtitles that you may not have seen.8.
Practice subtitles for family events.
If family members or friends are going to be celebrating, they might want to try to read the menus first.
The subtitles are more useful if you know the food will be served and the menu items will be available for you to try.9.
Practice when you go to the movies.
You may not be aware of it at first, but it is really helpful to practice with subtitles when you want to see the movie.
For an example, you might want your family to sit down at the same table with you and use the same subtitles for their conversations.10.
Practice making the subtitles sound natural.
If the subtitles you hear sound a bit strange, you could try changing the language in your head.
If it sounds strange, use the sound effects and subtitles as well.
