NETFLIX: BINGE WATCHING (AND LEARNING ENGLISH) HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER!




Teenagers have a good reason not to study: in fact a new on demand platform has become more and more popular since it was launched in 1997 in California, USA.

We are just joking: boys and girls should study, but after spending some time on school books, they could rest on their sofa while watching a good TV series or a movie, in English to improve their competence or in Italian if they are not good enough.

But we haven’t told you yet what kind of portal Netflix is: it includes several programmes, such as films, documentaries and TV shows, with an interactive interface which let you watch what you like most!

If you want to discover more about the Netflix universe, you can read the following paragraph.


7 REASONS WHY

The price is cheaper than other colossuses of the field.

You don’t need a decoder; in fact you just have to download its official app on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any other devices.

It offers a wide range of genres.

There are continuous updates of the catalogue.

If there is no connection, you have been able to download what you want to watch since the launching of the on demand service.

If you prefer watching shows in their original languages you can, also with subtitles: just take a look at the settings!

Binge watching is definitely the trend of the year! Do you know it? It’s when you watch many episodes in a row! Have you ever tried it? We love binge watching and Netflix is perfect for that!


NETFLIX ORIGINAL PRODUCTS

But the real attractions offered by the American company are Netflix original products: movies and TV series produced by Netflix. Among these we chose 5 TV series which are the most loved by the public a the moment.

13 REASONS WHY

Hanna Baker, after suffering a series of factors, commits suicide, leaving some cassette tapes to explain why she wanted to quit living. It is the TV adaption of a 2007 novel, called Thirteen Reasons Why.

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

Orange Is the New Black has become Netflix's most-watched original series. It tells about a woman, Piper Chapman, who is arrested after carrying a box full of money derived by drug dealing ten years earlier.

THE CROWN

Queen Elizabeth II is the main character of the series, which recounts the story of 25-year-old Queen leading the most important monarchy. 



STRANGER THINGS

When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police official and his friends must confront terrifying forces so as to get him back.

DAREDEVIL

A blind man, Matt Murdock, fights the evil in Hell’s Kitchen, as a lawyer and as a vigilant at the same time.

Have you signed up yet? 



If you love watching TV, especially TV series, you’d better do it: Netflix is the perfect way to spend your free time; moreover with the arrival of the summer, you could practise your English watching shows in the original language with subtitles. We do it because it’s the perfect way to improve listening and grammar skills and you might bump into new words which should be translated and added to your personal vocabulary!


Thank you for reading!
