"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

    It's not a TV series, but it's an awesome Youtube Channel with short videos to get to know more about animals. The English used is excellent and with a great sense of humor.

    Here about the angler fish

    I like to learn English by watching funny videos. I like talk shows like 'Graham Norton Show'. It can improve spoken English and hear different kinds of accents.
    I also like watching some videos created by so called YouTubers like AmazingPhil and DanIsnotonFire.

    There are lots of interesting topics to view in YouTube for English learning. For example, if I find it hard to understand the lyrics of a particular song, YouTube is a great resource of information for that. ;)

    I find sometimes YouTube offers the best selection of old TV series like Tony Hancock, Monty Python and The Goodies.

    Just google the name of the programme and 'youtube' to get results like this.

    The Blood Donor is a real classic!

    I use youtube channels to learn english, and it's a good resource. But I think the most important is to have a interactive resource....may be presencial class, chats in english or friends to talk...If we don't talk, it will be more dificult to learn a language.

    I'm listening to Supertramp on YouTube. They're my favourite group. They are old - I wrote my dissertation to their music and this was probably several years after the songs came out!

    @nmfs - I agree. If the time suits you, you might like our Wednesday G+ session, which is where we do exactly that.

    @mheredge - I definitely studied the wrong subject at uni. :smiley:

    There are loads of Youtube channels for learning English: James from Engvid is really good and he has his own channel on Youtube too. He mainly focuses on American English, but there are other guys like Dave Nicholls who have channels where you can improve your British English for free.

    @Lynne I think it was only because I knew their songs so well that it never intruded while I was studying. A bit like white noise!
  • DoriaDoria Posts: 12 ✭✭
    I love "let's muster English" podcasts. I listen to them while driving & before I go to sleep. The podcasts are on youtube, iTunes and he has his own Android app. Highly recommended!

    This video is awesome, and really moving. Drag to the right within the video as it plays.

    I like daily blogs by American girls, including makeup tutorials or shopping haul. My favorite YouTubers are Alisha Marie and Mia Stammer, and their other friends. They don't specialize for studying English, but I learned a lot of useful English phrases.

    @k33miyu - I agree with you. English study videos can be useful, but watching videos in the language you are learning about things that interest you is more motivating.
