    Hello there. I've already bored you once or twice, I'm afraid, before noticing this thread.



    Curriculum vitae:

    late 1960s: Odeon & Gaumont, Southampton - saw Battle of Britain, Lawrence of Arabia, Far From the Madding Crowd (dragged to by parents), etc.; saw actual organist once. Regal, Eastleigh - genuine fleapit, audience member once ejected for throwing muffins at screen. Dad's Army on TV



    1970s: pained adolescence in Midlands relieved by afternoon weekday Britfilms on TV & Hammer/Amacus Friday nights



    Continuous decline since.



    Very much enjoying the site so far. Best wishes, Mark



    PS Anyone know how I put a favourite quote under my pearls of wisdom ? Thanks.

    Having just done this myself - up at the top between "Home" and "FAQ" is a button that says "User CP" - click that. There then should be a column on the left where one of the choices is edit signature. Quote on!



    And welcome. Just got here myself, like it a lot.

    Hello.



    I have just joined the forum on the suggestion of two newly discovered online friends who seem to share my passion for all things British movies and TV.



    I look forward to meeting new folk on here....



    My favourite British actor is James Mason - favourite film Odd Man Out. But I'm also a huge fan of all things horror - Hammer, Tigon, Pete Walker etc.



    I also love retro TV especially comedy - Frankie Howerd, Les Dawson, Dick Emery - and I suppose you can guess from my user name - I'm a big fan of This Is Your Life!!



    Cheers



    Tony

    Hi Sara



    Anything by Walt Disney would be good.



    Cinderella

    Peter Pan

    One Hundred and One Dalmatians

    Robin Hood

    The Fox and the Hound

    Oliver & Company

    Basil The Great Mouse Detective



    These are all from classic British stories.



    There is also lots on YouTube from Children's BBC:

    Do not rely only on films. Books and audio books on CD are very useful, perhaps the BBC via the internet, BBC - Radio 7 - Homepage is very good and does have many children's stories. To be old fashioned find an English speaking pen friend same age an interests, write to her in English and request that with her reply there is a critique of your letter.

    I learnt really good French this way and we are still friends after 50 years!

    Yes, just soak yourself in the language. Listen to as many people speaking English as you can.

    Have BBC Radio 7 (or BBC Radio 4) playing in the background while you work.



    There are a wide variety of accents to be found in Britain, a huge variety considering its small size.



    Writing to a pen friend will help with your written English and with the complexities of the grammar. I learnt most of my German by writing to a pen friend (who I still see quite regularly 40+ years later) and by going there and staying with her and her family.



    Don't worry too much about the grammar, most people born here don't know how to use it



    Similarly, don't try too hard to perfect any one accent. We are so used to different accents we can understand most of them

    Welcome Sara,



    Many modern cartoons (Disney, Pixar etc.) have a very advanced level of English. They are as difficult as normal films.



    As Gogglebox (above) said, try Children's BBC.



    I teach English to a class of advanced adults, and I showed them "Peppa Pig" - they loved it, because they understood every word!



    Sometimes, it is better to go back to British films from the 50s and 60s, when they spoke more clearly, and used less 'slang'.



    Good luck.

    Hi there Sara! Nice to meet you.



    I am Dutch and taught myself the English I use today. I had English in school for 6 years, but I studied it from the age of 3, starting with music in the pop charts. I really wanted to know, and by the time I was 13, I started teaching myself the English accent by reading my favourite book, 'Jane Eyre' out loud to myself.



    Then, in the early '90s, as a student, I became a folk musician and still have the same English-speaking friends today. I have no Dutch accent anymore now, I speak English daily.





    Sara, what I am basically saying to you is........ Just be open to the language, be curious. And it will come to you almost naturally as time progresses.





    I once was where you are right now with your English, I identify with you. My English will never be perfect, but your enthusiasm is something I have always had myself. So feel free to contact me on here if you need any suggestions, ok?

    Hi sara, You may find this course that was made by the BBC in the 1970's helpful, it helped a lot of foreign language students back then.



    They are all uploaded on youtube, and take you from beginner to advanced.



    The gentleman who is the host, is one of our forum members, so you will be in good hands.



    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGiNjI1j2P4]YouTube - Follow Me - Beginner Part 01[/ame]



    If you go to the channel that this clip was posted on, they have all of them.



    Good luck
