Learning English with "Friends"By Di, March 14 2023
Many successful English language learners use television shows to learn.
Sitcoms (situation comedies) are especially popular. And, without a doubt, Friends is the most popular one. It has easy-to-understand English, familiar situations, and lovable characters. The show ended in 2004, but it's still one of the most-watched shows on streaming channels.
Elif Konus, from Turkey, used the show (among other things) to learn English. Now, she is an English teacher and has written English lessons based on "Friends" episodes. She even used the learning technique for her Master's thesis.
Celebrities such as Kim Nam-joon, the leader of the South Korean pop group BTS, have used Friends to learn English.
