How are you today?
Watching films and TV is a very good practice to improve your English.
Nowadays the genre of TV series has reached a cinematographic level that, in some cases, is higher than Hollywood’s best films.
I love watching TV series, do you? Do you have a favorite one?
We could talk about TV series as a way to practice your English comprehension and expression, couldn’t we?
Let me tell you about one of my favorites…
I do not like zombies, but I love The Walking Dead!
To me there is a lot more to it than just a bunch of horrible zombies and the very disgusting scenes they are involved in.
Ready to learn the difference between “every” and “all”?
Well, let us start by telling you that they can both be used for people and things. They mean more or less the same but there is a little difference.

How have you been?
Do you like going to the cinema or watching films?
I love watching films at home, at the cinema, it does not matter; it is one of my favourite free time activities
It is also good for me as an English teacher because watching films is one of the things I can advise you to do, to improve your English. 🙂
So, today, I want to talk you about one of my favourite films: “Little Miss Sunshine”
I have highlighted the new vocabulary and you can find it below.
It was released in 2006, written by Michael Arndt, and directed by the husband-and-wife team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.
It relates the story of the Hoovers, Sheryl, the mum, Richard, the dad, the grandpa, Frank, the uncle, and Dwayne, the brother, all travelling cross-country to take 7-year-old Olive to the Little Miss Sunshine state beauty contest.
It is a film full of warmth and charm. It is a comedy-drama that has the ability to make you laugh and cry almost at that same time and then leave you with the feeling that no matter how hard it can be, “life is worth living”.
