MOVIES, SERIES etc. - Suggestions for intermediate adult learners

Dear friends,

I īm teaching an intermediate conversation class, younger and older adults. They asked me to recommend movies, series etc. that they can watch to improve listening skills and vocabulary in their free time. I thought about this and I came up with a couple of suggestions (see below).

Do you have more ideas? Which movies do your adult learners like? Is there anything free on the internet that you can recommend?

Thanks for your help!! Heart

    Well I have another idea to practice Listening but with music
www.lyricstraining.com here you can watch musical videos and listen to music there are exercises for begginners to advanced you listen to the song and complete the missing words if you don īt write the word correctly the music stops.....It is a very nice webpage to practice listening.
   I hope it helps
