Mooveez films cost €16.99 to 17.99 and the short NatGeo documentaries cost €0.99 to 1.99. The prices of individual episodes of TV series range somewhere in between. We negotiated these prices with film studios in order to be able to offer Mooveez films for no more than two and a half times the price of ordinary films on iTunes.
With Mooveez you’re not just buying a film. Each Mooveez film delivers weeks of study materials including many useful functions. Compare the price of a Mooveez film with the price of taking lessons with a teacher, or the price of textbooks. You’ll immediately realize that Mooveez films are a very good deal.
The main difference lies in the added value and functions available in Mooveez. These save time and enable you to work with the film as if with English language study materials. Each film has been retranslated by experts in its entirety with a view to studying English. No words have been changed, as is typically the case with subtitled films. Not even cultural references or jokes have been adapted, but instead are explained in order to help you dig deep into the language and the environment in which they are used. Mooveez films also explain the grammar and idioms used, plus each film includes a range of grammar exercises.
There are several reasons for this:
1. Length: Subtitles in films tend to be shortened so that longer translations don’t spill over into subsequent scenes.
2. Methodology: With our method you engage your memory more in the learning process, which is undoubtedly more effective.
3. Attention: When watching a subtitled film, sooner or later you start focusing on the subtitles and lose awareness of the sound.
Very carefully and deliberately. You will spend more than one to two hours with a Mooveez film. For this reason it must be a film you are willing to watch over and over. We also select films that are appropriate in terms of studying English. These therefore consist of a combination of successful releases over the years and those recommended by our language experts. For this reason you are not likely to find new releases among our offerings.
You can download a demo of Mooveez for Forrest Gump and one short National Geographic documentary. You can use the demo to experiment with how Mooveez works and see what kind of exercises you can expect.
We currently have a range of films and TV series in production. Other movies are simply waiting for contracts to be signed. We try to add at least one title per month.

Films often manage to partially replace a foreign environment, which can be very helpful for learning a foreign language. In the Mooveez app we provide added value and transform the films into materials which are convenient for studying English. Find out more by watching our video!
Watch our video! Here you will see our recommended method. However, you can change your methods depending on the place and circumstances in which you are studying with Mooveez. For the method to succeed, it is important to maintain the following sequence: listening => understanding => repeat listening => active practice.
Yes. To a certain extent as Mooveez copies the natural way we adopt a new language. First you listen, understand the content, listen again, and then actively practice. With our flash cards you can practice proper diction and learn to speak with the vocabulary of a native speaker. What’s more, you will learn all expressions within the context they’re actually used.
It depends on you and the energy, intensity, and goals you bring to your studies. In general it can be said that one feature film provides a month of study if you work with it every day.
Yes. Every film contains a professional translation that lets you know what is taking place in the movie. Your lower knowledge of the language may even be to your advantage. The reason is that you can naturally learn actual phrases and words used in association with the audiovisual film experience. In Mooveez we will also explain the grammar being used, and allow you to practice it. You can naturally select the grammar from the film that suits your level. With a single film you can make incredible progress – there will always be something new to discover!
Yes. We recommend Mooveez for children. All those who know how to read can work with Mooveez just like adults. Children who are not yet reading can often handle repeated listening even better than adults. This can be attributed to the natural capacity of children aged six to seven years to learn languages differently. Any decisions regarding the film’s suitability, however, should be carried out by an adult.
You knowledge of the language after each film will depend on your initial knowledge. We recommend that beginners study at least five films following our recommended process. One film contains an average of 2,000 unique words, the majority of which are the most widely used. A mere 1,000 words represents 60% of the most common vocabulary. With each subsequent film you therefore increase your vocabulary, learn common phrases, or master certain grammatical rules. Since these are not films designed for study, not all of them contain all the grammatical rules.
Download the app, watch the "How to learn with Mooveez" video, download the free demo for Forrest Gump, play around with it and the Mooveez functions. Then simply select a film you like and start working with it.
We are bound by the distribution rules which specify which countries we can use specific translation languages in. At present, one exception to this are NatGeo documentaries. We are working on being able to offer this benefit in future.
Mooveez films do not contain subtitles, but rather a word-for-word translation of the original in the form of a screenplay and its high-quality translation. You can return to specific passages repeatedly or hide the screenplay whenever you want and practice understanding from the context or the spoken word. You can select any dialogue from the screenplay and use it to create an audio flash card.
Audio flash cards make repetition easier. You can create them yourself from any dialogue in the film, then use them to easily return to phrases. First it helps to set them up with the translation language on top. Try translating the phrase, then check your translation by listening and flipping the flash card. A more advanced setting is with the English side on top, where you attempt to translate it in reverse. Once again you should check your translation first by listening and then by flipping the card. It helps to repeat the phrase out loud.
Mooveez explanations can help you delve deeper into a language and its culture. It will explain the slang expressions being used and the phrases which might not make sense at first, but which are of course commonly used among native speakers. Anyone can appreciate them, regardless of their language level.
Clicking on a specific phrase plays the film from that phrase. Clicking on the icon indicating the actor who used the phrase only plays the phrase itself.
We’ve divided each Mooveez film into smaller sections called lessons. Using the lessons makes it easier for you to navigate when launching the app repeatedly. At the same time you will have an overview of what you’ve covered and how much you still have left to do. For each lesson there is a set of exercises which relate to what you’ve watched. This allows you to proceed in a very structured manner and get the most out of the film.
Films are provided in standard SD quality and have about 1.5-3 GB including all the language training materials, depending on their length.
The download time depends on the quality of your connection.

Closing the app will suspend the download of your film, although it will resume once you relaunch.

You need to be online when launching a film for the first time.
For certain films (such as School of Rock) we are restricted by copyright. In passages containing translations of songs, for example, certain audio clips have therefore been removed from the soundtracks of the audio flash cards. Audio flash cards with these restrictions feature a crossed-out speaker icon. You can create an audio flash card from these but they will not contain sound, or may be inaudible.
If you are travelling abroad, it is likely that the selection will be different due to the country you are in. You will not lose the films you have purchased. Once you return home, your selection of films will be restored.
