Session 7: Movie Night: A movie in Spanish with German subtitles

Probably the preparing of this lessons was the most challenging part because we were not able to find the right movie. Maria and I had their own view about which movie is the best for this class. This lead to a huge discussion at least at some point we tried arguing in Spanish that I was able to gain negotiation skills.

In the end, we chose Spanglish. The movie is with Adam Sandler I think I don’t need to say more about the movie. The good thing about the film was that you can choose in the settings the languages and the subtitles. So, the movie was sometimes in Spanish and sometimes in German. Furthermore, we used English subtitles that we very at least able to catch up the story.

From my point of view this was extremely nice because I don’t need to focus so hard during the film when there was a German dialog. Furthermore, both of us were able to gain the same experience.

When one of us had a question, or didn’t know a vocabulary we stopped the movie and discussed it. This was for me the best part of the session. We were both able to gain new vocabulary and had still fun.

In the end, it was a nice experience and in the future, I will try to watch Spanish movies by myself. Furthermore, I think the best part for me was the discussion in Spanish about which movie are we going to watch.
