Audio Course “Movies On The Run”


Learn to understand fast-talking native English speakers through movie quotes in just 2 weeks

Fed up of watching movies with subtitles?

Feel nervous before you talk to a native speaker in case you don’t understand them?

“Movies on the Run” is an audio course that teaches you 10 English listening secrets that will help you understand native speakers when they talk fast.

Plus, you discover famous movies and the quotes that have become part of everyday speech and culture so you can fit in better.

I’m really enjoying doing the course. I’ve just finished unit 8 and it’s amazing how different the English we were taught is from the real English. Or at least it’s the case in Spain.

I want to thank you and I’m really looking forward to writing you again soon to tell you that I’m able to see a movie without subtitles 🙂

What You’ll Find Inside “Movies on the Run”

movies on the run in action 3

“Movies on the Run” consists of 10 quotes from famous movies like “Top Gun”, “When Harry Met Sally”, “The Godfather” and more.

Each quote illustrates a listening skill secret that makes fast-talking native speakers hard to understand such as sounds that disappear, change or that are even added to speech.

You do activities based on each quote that involve listening and writing. In the bonus exercises, you also work on short phrases and expressions from conversational speech, so you can understand everyday expressions when you hear them.

I think Movies on the Run is great. Even though I’m busy with work, I’m advancing more or less 1-2 quotes every week. It’s really helping me to identify the sounds I have problems to catch in fast speech.

I’m really happy with my MOTR experience. What I really appreciate about your work is the link between spoken English and movies. This helps me master an important aspect of my English (listening and speaking) and I can do it in the most enjoyable way I know: while watching movies! I really appreciate your phonetic analysis and the advice about what to do next. But also the information about the movies – plot, fun fact etc. MOTR gave me ideas for which movies to watch next. Thank you for creating it!

I wasn't sure if Movies on the Run would be useful for me. But, as I'm pretty committed to improving my listening skills I decided to try it out.

Also I heard about your method on a podcast and wanted to apply it. Before that I spent two years watching movies with subtitles. Honestly I thought that someday I would be able to do it without reading and just listening. But I realised that day wouldn’t come and hearing you on the podcast opened my eyes.

Movies on the Run was challenging because it was the first time I have had to do dictations and other active listening tasks. But I would recommend it to other upper intermediate or advanced learners who want to improve their English skills.
