Top 5 TV Shows To Watch This Summer
Mind the Gap’s Top 5 TV Shows to watch this summer
There are still weeks to go before we get back into our work and study routine. Are you bored already? Are you still locked up indoors trying to cool down? Are missing your English classes. Well, if you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, we recommend you make the most of your time and watch TV shows in English. Watching TV is a great way to improve your listening comprehension and to hear authentic English. TV series and shows are generally quite short so it isn’t too tiring to sit and watch an episode or two. Another great advantage is that you really get to know the characters and the storyline if you get hooked on one show. TV series are generally easy to follow and as most of them run for a number of seasons, watching a few episodes a week leads to regular listening and therefore, consistent progress. Aileen has very kindly chosen her Top 5 TV shows to watch this summer. We hope you enjoy them! Thanks Aileen! (P.S. I am a huge fan of Derry Girls too.)
