"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Thanks @gomaa Yesterday I watched the last episode of Merline season 5. Now I'm done with Merline I enjoyed and learnt a lot on communication skills .

    I'm a fan of superhero movies,comics,etc.
    So I'd like to introduce you a really interesting TV series.
    First one is The Flash.It's about a man who can run at the speed of sound.
    well,maybe a little childish,but I recommend you this because a lot of scientific
    words are used in the drama.Maybe useful for some people.
    The other one is Daredevil.Also a hero,but not a 'Super Hero'.
    Why?
    Because he's just a normal lawyer who can't see but can fight a little better than others.
    Since he can't see nor that super great at fight like captain america,whenever he tries to stop some bullies,he always gets punched.
    He even sometimes gets punched half-dead.
    But that's not the reason why I recommend this one.
    In the first series,they-the producers-ask about the true definition of Justice.
    In the second one,which is going to be aired,they are gonna ask about the way of punishment.
    If you wanna think a lot,watch this series!!

    Oh,it's a little cruel.cruel?

    I like "The Office" as well, I watch it online with english subtitle. There are a lot of slang in it, but I can learn many useful office/workplace/business phrases. Furthermore I like the characters and the humour of it.
  • hazel27hazel27 Posts: 570 ✭✭✭
    @nagrol I like 'The Office' too but I have watched just original British version. Now I wait for David Brent movie ;)
  • peaceculture2peaceculture2 Posts: 1,348 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yeah @gomaa
  • anapereiraanapereira Posts: 29 ✭✭
    @navidafrasiabian Thank you. I'll try some :)
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 37,459 mod
    The second attempt to download episode one worked and there are subtitles too @peaceculture2. But I'm in despair as I don't seem to be able to understand the Spanish without the subtitles. I'm obviously so rusty I think I might have to go back to basics!

    The only two I've seen from your list are Downton Abbey and Agent Carter @navidafrasiabian. Our tastes are obviously quite different!

    Maybe this is the most appropriate TV series for improving you English. Especially in comparison to the stupid new ones (Extra and so on )
    This TV series is called 'I love Lucy'
  • peaceculture2peaceculture2 Posts: 1,348 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I tried to watch many series most of them are from America, But currently I want to watch British series. Please share with me you're favorite British Series

    If you want a complete list of British TV series @peaceculture2, have a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_British_television_programmes. This also indicates what type of programme it is (crime thriller, comedy and so on) and provides a link to a full description.

    You all might find this interesting if you want to watch British TV programmes @Rema, @hazel27, @Oleg, @anapereira, @nagrol, @gomaa, @navidafrasiabian, @Hyun.

    Thank you @mheredge I'm so grateful for this link! <3
    10 years ago I have watched tv reality show 'The Edwardian Country House' in which participants had moved into the past - to Edwardian times. They had to put yourself into role of aristocrats and servants. It was a little like Downton abbey but for real. It's great lesson of history.
    And I found almost all episodes on youtube - American title - 'Manor House'.

    Similar titles to this are: 'The 1940s House' - family live in War Word II
    'Coal house' and 'Coal house at war' - a Walsh mining community

    hello everyone. Thanks for sharing the information. I think BBC World News is also one of the best Channels for improving your listening and expanding your vocabulary.
  • hazel27hazel27 Posts: 570 ✭✭✭
    Since it's not a big problem to understand English language for me I can back to watching my favourites British programmes which aren't aired in my national TV.
    I have in mind for example 'Who do you think you are' - in this TV series celebrities try to investigate their family history. It inspired me to create my own genealogy tree ;) Of course I don't have so much resources as creators of show.
    You can find history of family JK. Rowling, Julie Walters, Patrick Steward and many more. I recommend episode with Boris Johnson (I think he is the Mayor of London) - really interesting!
    It's also created US version. You can find there for example Lisa Kudrow, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bryan Cranston, Jim Parsons (@Bubbly - Sheldon has quite interesting ancestors ;D). The list is long.

    This may sound the weird version of mine, but I like watching this TV series from US:

    After Sherlock Homles, Gotham got my full attention these days. I am enjoying it. :)
  • navidafrasiabiannavidafrasiabian Posts: 1,347 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I started House of Cards last night and I really enjoyed it.You can feel that it is completely better than other series.
    It is good for those who want to learn politic words or want to learn advanced words.
    Besides, their American accent is really awesome!!
