American TV dramas are quite prevailing in the group of teenagers these days. Some people think it has nothing to do with the students. But in my eyes,I regard them as a tool to learn English
and they help me to know different culture. First American TV dramas can enhance my sense of learning English. Broke Girls is one of my favorite American TV dramas and it shows on every Saturday evening .When it begins, I’ll be concentrated on the screen and too addicted to the drama to hear mom’s instruction I be expected at the dinner table .As soon as it ends, the video will be rewound and I’ll write down some important words,phrases and sentenses that will help me with English. My vocabulary will be expanded with lots of words learned. Next ,their accent is pretty good in the drama so that it can get my spoken English improved .Only if master the native English expression will I do better in learning English. Ultimately ,the most important significance of watching American TV dramas do I think is to know the differences between America and China. There are a large number of stories in Broke Girls permeated with their own culture such as the civil war and Great Depression .The characters are always talking about the news which is from all over America, most of it about politics. In one episode,the main character Oley walked along the street ,one of his old companions putting his hand on Oley’s shoulder.“hey ,Oley! I’m Thomas Jefferson .We haven’t seen each other for several years!”Oley thought for a while and answered,“Oh, you are the person who writes the declaration!Have you finished writing?”Puzzled by this confusing conversation,I looked through the dictionary.With the unfamiliar words looked up,I realized that the declaration referred to the Declaration of Independence and the great president Thomas Jefferson’s name is the same as the old friend’s.It reminded me of what I had known about Jefferson in my junior high school.My history teacher used to mention the leader of War of Independence..Otherwise,I completely forget about him.As a student of art,it’s necessary to understand their historical background.The more knowledge I gain,the better history and politics grades I get. Though I benefit from American dramas a lot,there should be a proper limit to them.You will be sure to be addicted to the dramas unless you control yourself.We are supposed to keep a balance between our study and American TV dramas.American dramas should be treated as an important way to improve the level of English or other subjects rather than just for entertainment.
