    I always watch movies with subtitles. I preffer it that way because English is not my first language. I can understand it and write it well, but the accents will make a hard job for me to understand certain things.

    I prefer to watch movies with subtitles, as it helps to further my understanding of what’s occurring in the movie/tv show, especially if the characters are speaking in a way that is rather incomprehensible. Subtitles also aid me when I’m watching movies in other languages, specifically French, as I can learn new vocabulary and apply it to my daily use of the language. I think that if you’re able to focus on the movie and the subtitles simultaneously, you should use them.

    I personally believe that watching movies with subtitles is the best way to go. Some argue that subtitles are very distracting and unnecessary. However, I’ve never experienced a movie with subtitles that were too vibrant or large enough to distract from the movie and get in the way of what plays on the screen. The text is always small and all the way at the bottom of the screen for the best movie-watching experience.

    Subtitles are very much necessary if you would like to thoroughly understand and analyze any dialogue and the general plot of the movie. This is because important elements can often be missed and go unheard when subtitles can prevent this.

    It is also convenient to watch with subtitles in situations where the environment you’re in is too loud and as a result, it is hard to hear the movie.

    I had been used to watching movies with subtitles when I was a kid; hence, I couldn't catch up with my sisters when they watch some because they always prefer watching movies without it, to enhance their listening skills better. And so, I started doing the same for the same benefit.

    I know it shouldn't be as big of a deal as it is, but subtitles are so distracting to me. Maybe I'm just a slow reader. I actively try to avoid movies in a different language though because I cant stay focused on reading for that long.

    Watching movies with subtitles helps you to learn foreign languages. You are killing two birds with one stone. You watch your favorite movie and you get learn new words from it. Watching movies with subtitles is a powerful tool for practising listening. I am enthused about subtitles and I appreciate work of people who create them. Nevertheless, I also understand people who find subtitles slightly distracting.

    I love watching movies with subtitles because of 3 reasons. First, I have a big family and they always makes a lot of noise which causes me not to hear the movie properly. Second reason, I love watching foreign movies and I am not really a multi-lingual and so, subtitles really help. Lastly, I want to support people who makes subtitles as they really work hard for others to make it easier to watch and understand the movie.

    For the most part, I usually watch movies without subtitles. On occasion, I will watch a film with the subtitles on, but this is usually only when the film is in a language other than English. I am the type of person that cannot focus on multiple things at once. Because of this, when I watch a movie with subtitles, I will only read the subtitles and not even pay attention to the film.

    I am Romanian and I have been learning English ever since I was in kindergarten but what really improved my English writing and speaking skills was the endless hours of TV shows with English subtitles on.
