Watching movies is fun. Watching movies in English is a fun way to stay in touch with the English language at home. When students at Smith’s School of English Katsura(スミス英会話 桂) have an English conversation, the popular question is: “What’s your hobby?” and the popular answer is: “I like watching movies”, or: “I like watching Hollywood movies.” I like this answer. Watching Hollywood movies is a perfect hobby for an English conversation student. For many people, it’s easier to start with short movies or movie clips. It’s also better to watch movies with subtitles.
Talking about movies can also be fun. Students often recommend their favourite films. They tell each other why they like some movies and what is interesting about them. Students sometimes talk about movies they didn’t enjoy, and try to explain why. Most students don’t like horror movies. The most popular are comedies and dramas.
I like all kinds of movies, so I’m always happy to talk about films and cinema. I also like to recommend my favourite movies. Recently I’ve been lending students my “Moonrise Kingdom” DVD. It’s a sweet comedy about a childhood adventure.
