If you are interested in learning English as well as about American and British culture, watching movies is a great way to have fun and develop English at the same time. Yet, sometimes you might want to focus on what is being said, without paying attention to what is shown onscreen. Reading dialogues and stage directions feels a little bit different from watching a movie, and by reading scripts you may feel as if you can relate to and understand the characters and plot at a deeper level. Though it doesn’t help you with improving your English listening skills, it provides you with an experience to approach what has been actually written to create a movie. Moreover, reading and understanding what is being said in its context, also allows you to learn how to express yourself in any given situation.
