Oliver Twist (孤雛淚)
Shakespeare in Love (沙翁情史)
如果看的過程，還是很迷失，表示1) 你的聽力真的很弱 或2)前幾次用中文跟英文看的時候，你根本沒有專心。但不管怎樣，你要再重新回到原點，看一遍中文字幕，再一遍英文字幕，再試一次沒有字幕的。我從來沒有補過習，但我看了幾百部英文電影，不只英文變好，跟老外聊天更是沒問題。當然，沒有耐性的人根本也不要浪費時間看我的網站了。這已經是最輕鬆的學英文練聽力方式了，不然你去買一本叫「躺著學英文」的書好了。
最後我要提醒要留英的同學，記住，大部份的洋人是很愛看電影的，也很喜歡討論自己喜愛的導演又拍過其他什麼片子。如果你不愛看電影，說不出個幾部片跟幾個導演，那你至少要喜歡音樂。如果你又不太喜歡音樂，說不出幾個你喜歡的樂手，那你最好喜歡看書。如果你也不愛看書，沒有半個喜歡的作家，那你最好喜歡某種運動，知道一些球員的名字，不然就要有個你很投入的嗜好，煮菜縫紉收集棒球卡都好。如果你也沒有任何值得一提的嗜好．．．我不知道你還可以跟別人聊什麼東西，如果被口試官問到這些問題，也可能悲劇性的收尾。請大家既然要考IELTS，這一年就投入心力在洋人的世界吧！不要再看什麼韓劇或日劇，那些節目的情結很難讓你說出什麼有意義的結論來。要考IELTS的同學，每週就選一部英國口音的片子來看吧！同學若有其他喜歡的電影卻不知如何向別人描述時，可以上網查詢每部電影的plot summary, director及cast。看完後可以自己試著以英文描述一下大概的劇情，到時如果口試被考到電影，你就賺到了！不會描述情節的同學，上IMDB、amazon.com或是wikipedia鍵入電影英文片名，就可以找到每部電影的plot summary了。也歡迎大家多推薦跟補充！
