I need to do the exercises more than three times to get them right. I made them with help, personally it is very difficult for me. Excellent way to learn

I like documentaries, and romantic films. But saying truth romantic films have got similar plot and does not describe real relationship. Many of them is like Indian drama. The last film that I wached were German romantic film Erbsen auf halb 6. The film shows to his audience what type of relationship exists and works.

Hi farid008,

 

Sorry you can't listen to it! I've just tested it and it's working fine for me. Are you using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or another browser? Try using a different browser and see it that works.

Yeah, I love cinemas. But I mostly don't head for theatres, 'cause I'm a bit busy. I have weekend classes and mostly those are the only days I could watch my fav movies and cartoons. Usually new episodes air during the weekend, and I surely don't want to miss them!
I usually prefer fantasy films. Action films are good, but they air at night, and I don't think I'll waste a good weekend night's sleep for horror movies! Action movies are a lot better. And as for romance, well, I don't like that genre much. I like Jackie Chan movies, and of course, I'm mad on Harry Potter movies. And Disney too. They're unbeatable.

I like cartoons, of course : > I also watch cartoons on Disney Channel and Cartoon Network. Recently, there was a new cartoon named, The Secret Life Of Pets. I've seen part 1 and I've seen part this Wednesday at the cinema. It's really good, cute and funny : >

I like cartoons and anime. I've been to the cinema before, but next week I'll go and watch Doraemon movie. I think I'm too old to watch, but I love it.

Hi Mihael,
That's a good question - thanks for asking! In the UK we usually say 'film' and in the US they usually say 'movie' - there's no difference in the meaning of the word. 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I have a problem with pronouncing the /l/ sound when it doesn't stand at the first of the word, I mean I cannot pronounce the word 'film' correctly like the girls on the recording does. WHen I pronounce, it is similar to /fim/ instead of /film/. Do you have any advice for me?

Hi elleryqueen! The /lm/ sound in 'film' is an example of a consonant cluster - a group of consonants without a vowel sound in between. They can be tricky if your language doesn't have the same sound. It's great that you have noticed this sound though. The more you listen and practise the better you'll be at producing it. Also, native speakers vary quite a lot in the way they pronounce this word, so don't worry too much if the way you say it is a bit different. With an Irish accent, for example, it sounds like 'fillum', so they add in a vowel sound. If you speak as confidently and clearly as you can I'm sure people will understand you perfectly. Good luck and keep up the good work! Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens Coordinator
