Movie theaters in Japan usually have some movies that are in English with Japanese subtitles. This gives students of the English language in Japan a great opportunity to practice their English listening skills. These are important when studying English conversation. Listening and speaking work hand in hand, so improving English listening skills by listening to English is important when seeking to learn to speak English. Watching movies that are in English is one way to do this and for those who like movies, fun! For me, I love watching movies and having movies I can watch in English here in Japan is great!
I started going out to the movies with a Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi student years ago when he (Yoshihisa) invited me out to see a movie with him. We have watched many movies together. Recently another student (Reina) has joined us too on some occasions so I guess we have a kind of movie club thing going on! (^.^) On July 24, Reina, another student (Hiroko) and I went to see ‘Terminator: Genisys’ at TOHO Cinemas Itami at AEON Mall Terrace in Itami. The movie was great and we had a wonderful time! I look forward to my next outing at the movies with Smith’s students! (^.^)
