Netflix

This is a brilliant platform to watch foreign language films on subjects that you are interested in. I have already posted about watching The First Line which is English but with plenty of Greek to keep me happy. I have also been watching Cathedral of the Sea which is Spanish (English subtitled) history, The Medici which is Italian history, Bolivar which is Spanish (English subtitled) Latin American history and the Last Csars which is Russian history. That last one is part dramatisation, part historical program. For pure drama in Russian with English subtitles watch Trotsky. This is not for the faint hearted as it’s quite raunchy from the start.

If you need to practice your English I recommend watching Peaky Blinders. This is on BBC IPlayer as well as on Netflix. You have 4 seasons so far to sink your teeth into. This is set in Birmingham just after World War One and the language is quite raw but it’s highly enjoyable. Not one for children but then neither are any of the above programmes either.

Do you have programs to recommend that I should watch as you don’t tend to hear about any of the ones above when asking people for viewing suggestions?

Best wishes

Angela

    Doctor Who is always good.
    Your diligence in improving your English puts my foreign language skills to shame.

    1. Yes I have watched lots of dr who throughout the years. Netflix struggles to show me new things because of the amount of tv and movies I have watched.

  3. Peaky blinders is a fantastic programme!

    I’ve recently made a new blog as I’m now back from Greece for good. I’m quite sad but I had to make a fresh start.

    It would be great to follow you there too.
