How much of English movies do you understand?


Senior Member
Dear all,

I am confused. I wanted to ask a non-native speaker of English who is learning English through watching Netflix series without subtitles how well
he or she understands what he or she watches on Netflix- e.g. if he or she understands 70 % of a movie.
I don't know if my question is appropriate.

    I'd ask how much of the spoken dialogue they understand.

    For many movies, it's possible to understand a lot even with the sound off :) especially action films.
