Learn a Language Watching Reality TV

Is reality TV one of your guilty pleasures? Don’t be embarrassed, it can help you learn a foreign language!

Intermediate and advanced learners need exposure to real conversations and while movies and news programs are great, they are far from organic. Reality TV shows learners how natives speak to each other everyday, in casual settings. Reality TV stars are generally not the most articulate people, so you’ll learn the 300 or so most essential words including the many filler words natives use as they organize their thoughts ex: ugh, so, like, you know. These words aren’t sophisticated, but they are useful and they make you sound more natural.

Reality TV is also an essential part of American society. Reality Stars like the Kardashians have, at least in part, replaced Hollywood movie stars as America's most important entertainers. Moreover, Reality TV's impact stretches beyond entertainment. Before running for President, Donald Trump was best known for his reality show, The Apprentice. His experience on the show and the audience it provided him are two important aspects of his political success.

You can find full episodes of the America’s biggest reality TV shows on their channels’ websites such as www.eonline.com, www.history.com, and www.mtv.com. The biggest French reality shows like Les Anges, Les Marseillais, and Secret story can all be found on YouTube.

Hey I'm Henry, I'm 29 years old and I'm from New York. I have a diploma to teach English from the University of Cambridge and I have been teaching English for 6 years. I offer classes to intermediate and advanced students looking to take their spoken and/or written English to the next level. I do this using a number of innovative exercises I've developed over the years teaching and learning languages myself (I also speak French, Spanish and Romanian). Book a trial lesson with me and we can figure out how I can help you! Je m'appelle Henry, J'ai 25 ans et je travaille en tant que professor d'anglais depuis 3 ans. J'ai travaillé dans des lycées et des academies a l'Ile de la Reunion et en Guadeloupe Mais désormais je suis de retour chez moi à New-York Je suis qualifié pour enseigner l'anglais aux apprenants de tous niveaux et je suis spécialisé dans l'amélioration de l'accent. Cela est très important car la prononciation des mots ainsi que l'intonation ont un impact sur le sens. C...
