A Leo Listener once asked this question:

 

How do I use what I learn while listening to movies and TV shows in real life?”

 

And went on to clarify:  

 

“When you aren’t trying to understand movies just for the sake of it, but you want to speak or write better, understand natives and know what to do when you don’t understand.”

 

For me, Trisha answers that question in this interview where she talks about using your journal to engage with what you’re watching and improve your English thanks to your creativity.
