That depends on which pricing model you choose. With Subscription you have access to all titles that are available within subscription (films, serials, documentaries, and in the future music clips and foreign-language titles) from EUR 6.99 per month. You can purchase individual titles from “Films for sale” list at a cost starting from approximately EUR 16.99 (the exact cost will depend on the exchange rate with the EUR).
Payments for purchases within Mooveez use the same payment method associated with your Apple ID or Google Play account. All transactions are conducted exclusively via official “app stores”; as these services do not share your payment card data, they also handle any claims you might have. Your Apple ID can be associated with a regular payment card, while Google also supports payments via your mobile operator. If you have no experience with online purchases or you do not wish for any reason to associate your Apple/Google account with a payment card, certain banks offer the option of issuing a payment card without opening an account. This works as an online account to which you can add funds of any amount through a transfer order. Other options include iTunes gift cards (not to be confused with App Store cards), which in certain countries are distributed in “physical” (plastic) form, while elsewhere they must be purchased... online :-)
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 language study materials. Each film has been retranslated by experts in its entirety with a view to studying language. 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 language quizzes.
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 language. 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.
Yes. You can download any of the titles in the Free section and work with it for as long as you want free of charge. We recommend choosing a title that you like and that you'll enjoy working with!
No, neither the Mooveez application nor the films themselves display any advertising.
At least once a month as we are trying to constantly expand our range. After you register in the app we'll let you know of any updates regularly.

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 language. 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 work with Mooveez" instruction video and then choose one of the following options:
Option one: Choose the lenght of the Subscription Once you've paid your subscription you can choose from a constantly expanding range of genres and titles. Withing the first - trial - week you find out whether study with movies suit you. And if not, you simply cancel the subscription and it won't cost you a penny.
Option two: Buy one of the films from the “Films for sale” list
It will be yours to keep and study with. However, don’t forget that it's important to choose a title that you like and that you'll enjoy working with!
We are bound by the distribution rules which specify which countries we can use specific translation languages in. So once it's in line with the distribution rights, there is this option in selected films available.
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 original 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.
Those are the language and cultural notes. They appear automatically, once there is some interesting reference in the movie (marked with a small star in the script). To give you enough time to read it through, film pauses in that moment.
These 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.
Once working with the movie repetitively, simply turn off the Wow! insights off.
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 quizzes 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.
Mooveez titles are provided in SD quality as standard. Films with all teaching materials are 1.5 - 3 GB in size depending on length. Serials are approximately 300 MB and short NatGeo documentaries are 16-60 MB.
Downloading content must be completed via Wi-Fi and so download time depends on the quality of your connection.

You may have experienced an error during the migration of data, which we can fix for you. Please let us know by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and specify the email address you used to register, ideally with a telephone number we can reach you on. We will be in touch shortly afterwards. Owing to our legal obligations toward our partners (movie studios), we were required to adopt a mandatory registration. This allows you to install the app on up to three devices without having to purchase the film again.
Wi-Fi is required to download the films, and for this reason you may want to check before downloading to ensure that your mobile data has been switched off. If it is turned on, the app will not allow you to download the film. The app needs to be open when downloading a film. If you close the app, your download will be interrupted, although you can resume downloading once the app reopens. If none of these solutions allows you to download the film, please let us know at email@example.com.
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.
You can store the film you are currently studying free of charge in our cloud storage and return to it at any time.
We assume you mean a title from the Subscription range. If this happens first try to update the app. If you only need to reauthorise your login, everything will work the same as before once the app has been updated. If you can't see the title in question at all, then it has been deleted. We constantly update the Subscription range – and unfortunately from time to time we have to delete some titles following the expiration of our distribution rights. However, we add new titles more often than we remove them.
Yes, both basic models can be combined.
We negotiate distribution rights individually for each territory, and for this reason the titles are not the same for all countries.
Yes. Each of the three options for Club membership (monthly/quarterly/annual) include one trial week during which you can make full use of our Club offer.
The same way as with any app with a prepaid option. After selecting and confirming the "purchase" of a specific type of subscription, Google Play/AppStore blocks the total cost of the chosen option on your card. This amount is only actually deducted after the first week. So before then you can change your decision at any time by either cancelling the whole subscription or choosing something different.
You can buy club membership in the same way as any other item in the app - i.e. by choosing the type of subscription and confirming your choice. It is therefore essential to have a payment card or other payment method registered to your AppStore/Google Play account. When you purchase a subscription you automatically get a trial week during which you can cancel your subscription at any time. If you don't cancel by the end of the free trial week, your membership will start the following day.
As every title in Mooveez costs us a lot for production and distribution rights, we make them available for a minimum period of 1 year. In relation to distribution agreements we try to make them available for as long as possible.
Your membership will be automatically renewed on the last day of the term unless you specify otherwise in your AppStore/Google Play settings. If your payment method expires in the meantime, AppStore/Google will notify you of this in time and will give you the option to update your information.
You "rent" the titles from our Subscription range for a limited period of time. We can't always guarantee the length of time for which a specific film will be available due to distribution rights. Although we constantly add to and expand our range of titles, we are obligated to remove a title from your profile once our distribution rights end. In the "Films for sale" section once you buy a film it is yours to keep and so will stay on your profile indefinitely.
Yes. Download the chosen titles to your device and you'll have them wherever you are.
Lots of people learn more than one language - or at least are thinking about it. We're happy to support them with this, so we put films in other languages primarily in the Subcription category, it’s a way to give our subscribers the benefit of "extra" content at the same price.
Cancelling subscription is subject to the rules of the AppStore/Google Play. If you decide that you no longer wish to use your club membership, you must actively cancel it no later than 24 hours prior to the expiration of your free trial week subscription. You can do this right in the AppStore (for iOS) or in your account details on Google Play (for Android devices). Here you can also cancel the automatic renewal of your subscription.
Please note that after the trial week is over, it will be possible to cancel your subscription and thereby avoid extending it; however it cannot be cancelled with immediate effect (i.e. the amount of your subscription that has been paid cannot be refunded, in keeping with the standard business policies of Google Play and the AppStore, and your subscription will end on the last day of the period for which it was purchased). Please remember that your subscription must be cancelled using the Apple ID/Google Play account you used to complete your purchase.
The main focus of Mooveez is to teach English in other parts of the world as well, but we have added other languages recently: Spanish, French, German and Russian.
