Expand your English with TV series

For English learners who love TV series!

About this course

We start this course with a general discussion about TV preferences and habits and then we explore the topic of binge watching through a short video from BBC Ideas. You’ll learn new vocabulary before moving on to a short debate where you will defend your point of view. 

Next we focus on an article which discusses the main features of successful TV series pilots and work on the vocabulary used by the author. You’ll practice listening for keywords by watching a video about the top 10 TV series pilots and then share your thoughts in the forum. 

We then have lots of fun listening practice with clips from Breaking Bad, Desperate Housewives, Fleabag and more, so you experience real English in a meaningful way.
