MovieText – see subtitles on your phone or tablet while watching movies and series

29. June 2020 Programs Leave a reply

MovieText app was created to improve your recognition skills of foreign speech.

Studies show that If subtitles are turned on on your TV, then your brain does not train to recognise foreign speech by ear – it simply chooses the easiest way to obtain information – reading text.

Try to turn off the subtitles on the TV and look for the subtitles on your phone or tablet when you are unable to recognise specific phrases.

You will see that often you know all the words that were said in a particular phrase – but could not catch them when listening due to lack of practice.

If you do not see the text on TV, then the brain begins to work and learns to catch words from speech. This method significantly improves your language skills.
