Learn Spanish with films
Watch films in Spanish can be very useful to learn Spanish and is one of the best resources any student can and should use to improve their knowledge of the language.
We recommend you watch mainly films from the Spanish cinema since this is good not only to improve your words and expressions vocabulary (as well the TV Shows) but also to exercise the hearing comprehension and to observe the gestures, way of saying things of native speakers.
