Turn On The Subtitles

quote [ As soon as they can decode basic phonemes they will see a benefit. However, the real benefit starts when a child is a sufficiently competent reader that decoding is done subconsciously. In the UK and US this tends to be around the age of six to seven. The challenge is then about speed, vocabulary, confidence and comprehension. Same Language Subtitles has been proven to be remarkably effective at improving these skills. ]

Subtitles also allow me to keep up with my stories over the sounds of my crunching snacks.

It gets really weird when the dialogue and subtitles are both in English, but differ from each other. Sometimes widely.

Makes sense.

Great way to learn another language. the Dutch don't seem to dub anything, just subtitle it.
