      Hi Seon

      The best is not a movie but series - try "Friends"  it is funny so not boring, the language is lively and memorable and if you download it in China it has has Chinese subtitles.

      Better read English news paper loudly and watch BBC News to learn english.

    Just for your information, the proper spelling is "English," not "english." Similarly, the country in which you say to be studying should be spelled "China," not "china." You should be using proper sentence case, like "I" not "i," and so on.

    I don't know whether you can access YouTube from China. If so, you can simply go to that website, then use their search box to find videos about "language courses," "learning English" or whatever you like.

    And if you don't want to learn English with an American accent, try "Trainspotting" or even "Braveheart".

        You gotta admit it will make for an interesting accent from a Chinaman!
        Oh and I think Mel Gibson did a great job on his Scottish accent! (Trainspotting is another matter through!)

      Who was American in that film? I only remember Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle...

        Nobody I think.

        Sorry maybe didn't make myself clear. The majority of movies in English in the world are American, so anyone learning English from the movies will learn to speak with an American accent.
        Many Dutch people speak English with an American accent thanks to just this.

        Just suggesting a few globally popular movies that don't sound American!

          When he or she says 'English movie' she or he means a movie in the English language - not an English English movie - I would say.

          Any movie that has clearly spoken dialogue is good for this kind of excercise, and not violent or full of cussing and profanity is best.  Chinese seem to love good detective stuff, Sherlock Holmes is really popular here, or mystery adventure or love adventure stuff.

    Probably any movies based on novels by Jane Austen would be good.
