Five exciting Netflix series to help you improve your English

Learning English always seems like a long and boring process, but modern technology and the approach to education is changing everything. Now, to improve your knowledge and replenish your vocabulary, you just need to watch TV shows on Netflix, and Happy Monday will tell you what.

Sometimes we underestimate our listening comprehension skills because we have bad memories of listening from school. Therefore, all sorts of oddities can arise when we are asked: “Where's a restroom?”, And we answer: “Restaurant is over there”.

If you get the impression that some “invisible earplugs” in your ears prevent you from perceiving English-language content normally, then the original series will help to unblock this obstacle.

In addition, if your friends or colleagues also watch Netflix and actively discuss some series, but there is no dubbing in your language, then this will be another reason to keep the conversation going. In addition, Netflix shows are content that is almost impossible to put down.

If necessary, it is possible to include subtitles in English. They will help you understand the meaning of unfamiliar words from the context and remember them.

Queen's Gambit ("Queen's Move")

Seven episodes about a talented girl who plays chess so skillfully that already in her youth she reached unprecedented heights.

It is also impossible to break away from the series, given the excellent English. There are some great phrases that native speakers often use: It's not rocket science ("This is not advanced mathematics"), She has some homework to finish ("There is still something to learn" / direct translation: "She needs to finish her homework"), I don't know if I'm good enough ("I don't know if I'm good enough").

Strategy, competition, partnerships, ups and downs, friendship and love - all this you will find in this series.

The Last Dance

You don't have to be a basketball fan to get hooked and watch all 10 episodes about the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan. It is thanks to this series that you can improve the level of spoken English.

Thanks to flashbacks about family, learning, teamwork, competition, the mindset of winners, you can create useful cases and role models for yourself. And the variety of accents will greatly sharpen your hearing: after watching at least one such series, no podcasts with the unhurried pace of the announcer will be of interest to you.

Self Made: Inspired by the life of Madame CJ Walker ("Madame CJ Walker")

Only 4 episodes about the business of the first woman millionaire in the United States, and the amount of inspiration and vocabulary will increase significantly.

When watching the series, you involuntarily put yourself in the place of the heroine and are surprised at her decision, character and willpower.

By viewing this content in the original, you will recognize the most “delicious” phrases from business English, such as Business can be ruthless, I can’t argue with that (“Business can be ruthless, you can’t argue with that”).

Values, loyalty, trust, competition, negotiations, public speaking - there are a lot of things in this series that make you think.

But, along with vocabulary about teamwork, leadership, negotiations and conflict resolution, there are a lot of obscene words and expressions.

Emily in Paris"Emily in Paris")

A light series about the life of an American woman in Paris, about office work, intercultural communication, defeats and successes on the way to improving the company.

From the first minutes, I also want to get on a yearly business trip to Paris, and Emily's situation shows that even the initial knowledge of the French language and the curious situations associated with it can eventually give a new look at business. Provided you know English, of course. Otherwise, how to find a common language with colleagues and new friends?
