Movies in the original are a great source of 'real' language.
At Mooveez, we create study materials out of movies. The things which make the Mooveez app unique, are the features which make the process of learning with the help of movies faster and more effective.
An interactive script is at the heart of Mooveez
A script instead of subtitles
The films in Mooveez have a literal transcript of the original as well as a great translation. If you read the translation, you know exactly what is going on in the movie and what any given sentence means.
With the Mooveez interactive script, you know exactly which sentence you are at in the movie.
With the touch of your finger, you can easily and accurately move sentences in the script back and forth - for example to add them to phrases which you didn't understand completely and which you want to work on. And you can do this as many times as you like.
You can create your own replayable audio flashcards
Create a flashcard
Mark those phrases that are difficult for you and which you want to repeat. This will create flashcards which have audio and can be replayed, also known as replayable audio flashcards. Flashcards make repetition easier - you can easily return to them whenever you want to listen to the selected phrase over and over to try to repeat the pronunciation. You can choose from two flashcard settings - either with the translation on the face side up or the original language on the face side up. The aim is to try to translate the phrase and ideally, before you turn the card over, you should play the original audio with it, which you are trying to repeat. You then flip the card over to verify your translation.
I know that!
You can easily mark those phrases in the script which you have already mastered. By doing this, you'll improve your language learning statistics and what's more, the colour coded dialogue will enable you to more easily focus on other scenes.
Language explanations: a great value add!
It's common when learning a language that even if you understand each word in a sentence, the sentence as a whole doesn't make sense. Often, this is due to idioms, specifics, cultural allusions or jokes which a native speaker would understand.
Movies are full of grammar. In the Aha! notes, the Mooveez app will also explain interesting language occurences which you will work with in the exercises.
The interactive exercises are based on the storyline of the movie
The are various types of quizzes and exercises available which all have a different learning goal. Your task is easy - to master them all
You can return to exercises whenever and as often as you like to revise and repeat! :-)
It's difficult to study anything if you don't know whether you're getting better or not. Especially when you reach a higher level, then it's difficult to monitor whether you're improving or not. With the films on Mooveez, the feedback is instant and simple - you notice for yourself that you understand the film more and more and this has a positive influence on your motivation. Of course, our exercises are another type of feedback and there is a whole range of these with every film.
The blotter: use it to cover the translation or the original text
When you learn with Mooveez, a great tool which we call "the blotter" is something which you can use to cover the text of either the translation or the original script. It is to the bottom right of the script and you can control it and drag it up or to the side with your finger.
If you already know a little bit of the language you're learning, you can cover the translation and watch the film with the actual script. By doing that, you'll understand the spoken text much better and you'll also grasp the pronunciation of individual words.
If you are a beginner, we recommend covering the side of the screen with the original on it and fully concentrating on the translated text. Follow the translation along with the story and the movie's original sound and you'll know exactly what's going on in each scene. You can add the original script as the next step.
On-line and Off-line
New in 2020! You no longer need to download study materials onto your devices. If you're connected to wifi or you are on a great mobile plan, you can study with Mooveez online. On the other hand, downloading study materials direct onto your device will come in handy when you are going to places where you won't have access to the internet.
