BEST TV SHOWS TO LEARN ENGLISH – vocabulary, hacks, topics

Hello guys and welcome to my channel In this video I’m going to talk about TV shows that helped me learn new English vocabulary There are lots of words that I still do not know that are from particular topics of our lives I don’t feel this urge to actually sit down and learn them but there’re certain things that I can do every day to imrpove my english and you can totally do that this thing is super easy is just watching a TV show in English I’m going to talk about my most favourite TV shows that hook me up, that make me watch them everyday and because I’m watching them everyday in English, I’m learning new words everytime If you’re interested, please continue watching this video The first show I’m going to talk about is the Silicon Valley because I live in San Fransisco and the Silicon Valley is really close some people consider San Fransisco part of the Silicon Valley There’re loads of offices here and I also run my own start up The Silicon Valley show is a high-light of my weekend Becuase every sunday I wait for the new show to come out They always talk about a lot of things that I connect with the start up life like fund raising and legal stuff and actually the Silicon Valley life and there’re so many particular things that you can learn from the show What?! If I told you there’s an app on the market that very… No-no! You wait till you’re inside, ok? You haven’t even got a bottle of water yet Head in, I’ll meet you in there. I just need to finish this call. Sure. Cool with “K” ok For example, pitching your company you will hear a lot of pitches during the show you will learn how to make the elevator pitch you will see bad examples of pitching your company just like this one you would be able, if you are running your company you would be able to imagine yourself in the same situation Jin Yang, what are you doing? This is Palo Alto People are lunatics about smoking here! You don’t enjoy all the freedoms that you have in China Also the Silicon Valley show talks a lot about the Silicon Valley culture like drinking kombucha I actually have an empty bottle just here with me About quitting smoking because nobody smokes here Everyone is about healthy lifestyle Houses that they show are really typical for the Silicon Valley They talk about pricing They actually use the actual meeting spots For example, the Forth Season’s hotel in Palo Alto It was in some series of the show It really gives this insight in the Silicon Valley lifestyle Well done So, what kind of terms do you think she’s gone lay on us? There’s a lot of work to do But you certainly knew how to play your audience. So… I’d say it looks good And as I said Silicon Valley show has a lot of vocabulary that is connected to fund raising like which is an offer from you to investor with your company’s valuation, with how much money they gona invest Guys, if you’re dreaming of running your company in the Silicon Valley Or if you’re interested in IT stuff Silicon Valley is a must-see show I love it. It’s my number one right now. The second show that I really like and where I take all of my legal vocabulary from is the Suits I have started watching them back, I think, in 2013 If you’re interested in becoming a layer in the States I think this the first thing you should start with Watch the Suits You will get aquainted with the Legal culture With the East Coast culture It’s completely different from the Silicon Valley Everybody wears suits – the Suits And those layers, they drive cool cars, they go to cool parties This will give you an impression of how the best law firms function in the United States They want a trial? I’ll give’em a goddamn trial You’re on it The example of words that you can learn from this movie is When you go to trial you actually go to the court room And negotiate with the judge and present yourself Yup, you know what I’m talking about, right? How they talk to the judge. They call the judge “Your Honor” So all of those legal things, legal lifestyle I would say Silicon Valley is for intermediate/upper-intermediate This – I would say upper-intermediate level of English because there’re loads of specific words that you would not know sometimes they would prevent you from understanding the plot if you’re an intermediate and want watch The Suits I would recommend switching on English subtitles Your Honor, this the fraudulent attorney I spoke with you about before trial We asked that he’d rather refrain from speaking or be removed from the court with an immediate rulling to dismiss this case with prejudice Other words that I’ve learned from this show are FRAUDULENT ATTORNEY which is like FAKE ATTORNEY “Stop the case”. All of those lexics Which means that you have some particular attitude to the case before you actually start the case so you have some of your own interets This is, by the way, how I advise you guys to translate the words do not translate them into your own language but try to guess their meaning from the context… and maybe use english-to-english vocabulary so you would be able to learn the word with its meaning and not with its translation into your own language Rachel, what’s going on? I am not getting into the bar We have a problem. This is about Mike I have a way to get you into the bar. Who wants to catch? What do you mean – no? What’s wrong with you? What’s wrong with me is I don’t feel like going back to prison Another very importnat topic in this show is taking The exam that you need to get into Master’s in Legal Education in the United States The exam that you need to take to become a layer in the States And they actually shot a real bar exam so they show how the experience look like And they show Rachael who is the main character Their preparing for LSAT And I know many people are, who are watching this vlog, will be taking some of those exams So I think it’s really useful And even if you don’t have anything to do with the Legal sphere Like me, for example, it was still really good time for me watching The Suits The next show is actually the first show I started watching in English This is the first show that I’ve seen from the very beginning up to the very end So I started with House MD and the I went onto Sex in the City But House MD was very helpful in terms of medical English and in terms of understanding how American medical system works. Becuase when you watch House MD, you get an idea how Doctor’s cabinet looks like, how a doctor talks to you You’re using your inhaler? All the time. Count through one a week. You’re sure you’re using it right? Do I look like an idiot? No Why don’t you show me how your inhaler works. Jerk And there’re loads of words that you can learn from House MD For example, the easiest one is INHALER – the thing that you use to fight your asthma Others like names of diseases I feel this is really helpful, it also helped me When I came here I knew how the medical system in America worked Becuase I watched like 6 seasons of House MD You are learning new medical stuff You’re learning how to describe different deseases Definitely watch House MD They also talk about medical exam so if you’re looking to become a doctors in the States This is the number one thing that you should do How long has your daughter had trouble breathing? About a week now The best dads wait two or more Yeah, no, it’s not like it’s serious I checked online and it’s asthma or something Or something is the number one killer of teens with no medical degree Needless to say his humour is amazing You’re gona laugh for hunderds of times during just one episode You’re gona love it So House MD – please watch if you’re interested in medical English. The forth show is the House of Cards. House of Cards is the show where you get aquainted with an American political system You see a guy who wants to become a president How he actually becomes president though sabotage gossip, bribes, whatever All of the hidious political schemes They are shown is this show There are loads of things that you can learn from it as well My personal favourite is how the main actor says – yes This is this East Coast accent, I guess an upper class accent So his tone – you have to listen to it You, J.Underwood, you solemnly swear I, Franscis J. Underwood do solemnly swear That I will faithfully execute That I will faithfully execute The Office of President of the United States The Office of Pre…yes, here we go again Secretary of States, that’s what I wanted That’s all I wanted That’s what I was promised And now, here I am – President of these United States As you know guys, I come from Russia And they say, our president – Vladimir Putin – has actually watched this show I guess if you’re a politician or you want to become a politician, interested in Politics House of Cards – must-see the only thing that you should know is that English there is really complicated There are times when I do not get what they mean And I guess, your level should be advanced to watch it without vocabulary or you should watch it subtitles maybe sometimes even in your own language Because there’re some many things, if you’re not good in Politics understanding them in a foreign language like English would make it even more diffcult please feel free to try and let me know if you have already seen House of Cards Let me know if you’re getting the idea of what they’re trying to say And the last but not the least in the Madman the Madman is the show about marketing and advertizing in the united States in the 60s Everything takes place in New York New York in the 60s is amazing, like the fashion that they have there And the music is adorable But the most important thing there is that they teach you How to tell a story Storytelling is a really important skill for any enterpreneur Becuase you need to tell a story to your customers You need to tell a story to your investors You need a story to your partners In the Madman you see the main character – Don Draper presenting, everyday he’s presenting to his company is an advertizing company He’s presenting advertizing ideas to their clients it’s clean, simple and it’s tindalizingy incomplete what’s missing? – one thing pass the Heinz You mean the Heinz ketchup? It’s Heinz, it only means one thing it feels like half an ad the greatest thing you have working for you is not the photo you take or the picture you paint it’s the imagination of the consumer they have no budget, they have no time limit and if you can get into that space, your ad can run all day And you know what? Heinz actually bought that ad from the movie creators they paid them a lot of money They actually placed it on air So I think great job was done behind that show So if you’re interested in Marketing. If you’re interested in how people create Ads and how creative marketing works The Madman is definitely something you need to see So these are my top 5 favourite shows to learn English I’ve given you some examples how to learn English through watching TV shows Let me know which TV shows you are watching Or if you have watched any of those that I have mentioned I hope you guys enjoyed watching this viedo Please, don’t forget to like it And don’t forget to subscribe to my channel If you want to learn English everyday, please consider visiting for language courses all over the world and skype tuition Let me know what you think and I’ll see you in the next videos.

  20. Thank you for the information Dear!! This is what I was looking for. And of course, you look gorgeous!! Thank you!!

  21. Check your pronunciation . . . When you were talking about "pitches," I thought you were saying the word that rhymes with "pitch," but starts with "b." (I'm a native speaker.) "P" is aspirated.

  22. Evil will not prevail on earth like this, for longer. Visitation of GOD will occur unexpectedly.

    At the time of our death , God will make us see all of our deeds.
    Those who hurted co-beings for selfish gains , will tremble with fear of facing GOD ,feeling terribly guilty ,sinking in eternal hopelessness.

    Those who saw Christ in their neighbours and sacrificed them selves for welfare of others , will feel the infinite unbounded love of God. They would be like God sharing his happiness and glory. This infinite love of each other is heaven.

    Repentance is moving from sinful of state , to the state of having unbounded love towards Jesus ,disguised as our co-beings. It is not any membership.

    Jesus clean me from all sins by your blood. I prefer death than doing any sin that hurt you. Say it with sincere heart.

    Jesus will surely come soon..

  23. British or American which English use in these shows not about English ascent but about subtitle that like colour or color

  24. Американского акцента совсем нет. Прям русский-русский английский. Я имею ввиду интонацию. Подача очень жесткая и не манерная.

  25. Hi Marina! I am brazilian and I am begginer in English, you could make videos about TV shows to begginers peoples in English. My English isn't so good, sorry! <3
