Most people in the world enjoy watching movies at their spare time, and I am one of them. I like watching movies from other countries, because I can learn different cultures of different countries when entertaining myself, and at the same time learn different language.
Movies reflect the real life of different countries. Emotion, career, social life, violence and moral can be the subject of movies, so from movies, I can know more about each part of a country, the way people live, act, talk, and think. That would be helpful when I communicate with foreigners. For instance, in my country, it is commonplace to ask a lady`s age, but from movies, I learn that it is rude to ask people their personal business. Since I got the information from movies, I will not make the mistake to ask this kind of question to embarrass both of us.
Then, I can improve my language skill from watching movies. Trying to catch what people say in a movie, I find my listening skill is improving. On the other hand, since there are many actors in one movie, I can learn how to adapt to different accent. Subtitle is practical to me, because when I cannot catch the dialogue in the movie, I can read the subtitle, and on the other hand improve my reading.
Therefore, for the above reasons, I am sure, watching foreign movies is definitely a good way to learn more about other countries.
