Listen to a text passage on loop. Listen to the native speakers in the movie and read along the word-by-word translations in your native tongue. Concentrate on the second line only (the translations). The word pairs are highlighted in sync with the speakers – just like a karaoke player. Repeat the text passage regularly until you understand approximately 85% of all words. Then, move on to the next passage/lesson. With this exercise, you can start to speak the language yourself. Play the movies with the native speakers (same text as at exercise 1) audible in the background.
