Watching English movies is a good way to improve your vocabulary. To start, here are some of the best lines from popular films.
Most movies use language that is used in everyday life. That's why it's very helpful to watch English movies when you're learning the language. You can see and hear people speak in a natural way.
Here are some of the best lines from English movies and how you can use them!
1. "May the Force be with you." This line is from Star Wars (1977). It's a phrase used to say "good luck" in the Star Wars universe. It's still used by Star Wars fans, especially on May the 4th, which is Star Wars Day.
The most accepted replies are "And also with you" and "May the Force be with us all."
2. "I'll be back." This line from The Terminator (1984) may not be an originally from the movie, but it was definitely made popular by it.
The Terminator is a science-fiction film about a part-human and part-machine assassin who is sent from 2029 to 1984 to kill a woman whose son will lead the fight against machines in the future.
The assassin, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, says this line when he isn't allowed to enter a police station. He then comes back by driving a car through the front door.
You can say this line when you're leaving and you want people to know you're returning (but not necessarily by wrecking the front door).
3. "There's no place like home." This line is from The Wizard of Oz (1939), a movie based on a book about a little girl who is taken to the magical land of Oz by a tornado.
This means that home is the best place. You say this when you're happy to be home.
4. "Seize the day, boys." Robin Williams' character, an English teacher, says this line in Dead Poets Society (1989). He wants his students to enjoy the present and not worry about the future.
You can tell someone (or yourself) "Seize the day!" as a reminder to make the most of the time you have now.
5. "Just keep swimming!" This line is from the animated film Finding Nemo (2003), said by Dory the fish, who helps Marlin in his almost impossible mission to find his son. It means "Don't give up!"
You can say this encouraging line to anyone who's feeling worried and hopeless.
