English through Sitcoms (click here)

Dramas and sitcoms (situation comedy) are particularly useful for learning new vocabulary and idioms. The situations create an intriguing and relaxing learning environment in which the students learn not just English words but also culture, humor and body language. Through the dialogs within the episodes, this particular course focuses on familiarizing students with native English speaking sounds and patterns. Also, the natural repetition throughout the series will help students internalize the spoken words and the students connection to the characters will help promote predictions about language choice. The series will also help students get a better grasp of humor and be better able to understand sarcasm or jokes.
