Serials in english

1. Friends

A little piece of us all died when Friends ended in 2004 after 10 years on the air. It’s perhaps the best-known American sitcom in the world and rightfully so – it’s a mix of sarcasm, deadpan (‘not obvious’) humour and lessons of what NOT to do when you’re on a break with your partner.

2. Game of Thrones

Even if you’re not a fan of fantasy, medieval battles or dragons, you still need to watch this. The show literally has everything you need: sword fights, zombies, love stories, monsters, naked people, and posh British accents. So, so much to love!

3. Keeping up with the Kardashians

The family everyone loves to laugh at (and not always because they’re always being funny) also happens to be one of the best sources of learning modern English slang – when you’re not trying to figure out why they’re buying another new car or handbag, obviously.

4. Sex and the City

Anyone who’s ever wanted to live in New York needs to watch this romantic comedy series about four female friends and the absurd situations they find themselves in (usually hilarious, sometimes sad). On the plus side, they’re always dressed really well and you can learn where all the good brunch places are in Manhatta

5. House of Cards

Thinking about starting a career in America? Learn all the complicated language you need for business or politics from this political thriller series. It might sound complicated at first, but before you know it, you’ll be the only one at the party who knows how the American legal system works and that’s pretty cool.

6. Sherlock

Sherlock Holmes became cool again when this British series started in 2010. It helps that lead actor Benedict Cumberbatch is now super-famous around the world too. It’s a very useful watch if you’re thinking about becoming a novelist or genius secret detective.

7. The Simpsons

Nothing really beats The Simpsons for casual, fun viewing. The language is uncomplicated and relatable, even if you don’t get some of the in-jokes (don’t worry, sometimes I don’t get them either). It’s also 28 years old, so you can literally never run out of episodes to watch
