Hi Persianman! Good question! Some films will be harder to understand than others, and many authentic films are probably above C1 level. But watching movies is a really effective way and enjoyable way to improve your English. Have you tried watching with subtitles in English?
What do other people think? Do you have any tips? 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I try to have my own style, not too different from my colleagues but with some changes... Years pass, so my sense of style is being modified with time, but i guess that's normal!! Despite that, I would never see myself trying any type of clothes from the Camden Town.

I always like to have my own style and wear clothes that fit me perfectly and make me feel good and comfortable. In addition, i tend to get frustrated when i buy something that fits me well at the shop and when i arrive home these clothes don´t rock. it´s amazing to see how the concept of fashion has changed and it´s interesting to see how people used to dress in 80´s and how they dress now.
To sum up, i don´t really like to look like my friends so i have my own concept of fashion which i like to follow.

I always like to have my own style and wear what I love most. However, I always like to try something new. My style may change a bit every year.
Me and my friends have more or less the same style, because we have the same age, but of course everyone have their own fashion.

I always use clothes that I like and that make me feel comfortable with myself. I don't have a certain style or follow any special trend which is what happens with some of my friends and classmates, so I always tend to look different from them.

Although I don't exactly try to look different from my friends, that is what mostly ends up happening since we have different fashion preferences. They prefer clothes that are more modern, casual and colorful, while I have a "darker" style, i guess.

I never really gave this question too much thought, usually I just wear what I like, what makes me feel comfortable. But now that I'm actually thinking about I guess my style has always been a little different. I like to look sharp, but I also like to wear the clothes and not let the clothes wear me, in other words, I never intend to make a mark or stand out with my clothes, I don't like or want to be define by what I wear.

It's amazing to see the evolution of fashion and it's fascinating to see how people used fashion to express themselves. I tend to forget that it's an art because of the simplicity of the clothes I buy.

I like all type of clothes. I don't really have a particular style but I don't make any effort to look like anyone too. If I fancy it I buy it and I wear it.

It depends. There are some clother that I like borrowing from my friends. We share trousers and t-shirts, but we have differents styles: we combine the same clothes in a different way.

I don't like to look like my friends. I like them to follow my style;). It means that I have a sense of fashion.
Individuality is the most important. You can wear the latest trends, but if you don't have any style and don't know how to wear it, you'll look just like one pattern more in the crowd. So, we shouldn't stream to look like others; we can take some advices, but to create our style by ourselves.

I like wearing different clothes as my friends. I love to be different. I love green clothes, tracksuits and trainers. I don't like all the people wearing the same.

I try to be an individual.
Every day I try to be different)But this only applies to clothing style.I remain the same at heart)
One day I can walk in a romantic dress and the other to go out in a tracksuit.I think it's normal for modern girls)))))
I think that you should just take care of yourself.
But if a person wants to radically change his appearance and lifestyle.This is his personal opinion and his right to do so)These people just want to stand out from the other.So I am not in right to judge them or praise)
