THANK YOU! I do exactly the same, I can't stand watching foreign movies on the tv anymore, my mother ruins it "ahh it's subtitles you don't need sound".

What she doesn't understand is when I get into the movie the subtitles and the voice of the actors turn into an english version. Same voice jsut speaking English fluently. I can't stand it when people dismiss foreign movies just because of subtitles, they are either too slow reader or can't multi-task at all (basically staring, listening and reading).

When I immerse myself my focal point isn't the lower half of the screen anymore, it's like a non-focused lense in which point my brain just naturally picks up the english subtitles and dubs it instantly or almost instantaneously.

oh but i dont think it's and artform hahaa

Seriously? I never though about it that way.

Reading subtitles for me is so natural, a lot of times I don't realize I'm reading them. In fact, a lot of times while I'm watching a show with subtitles I'll also be doing stuff like eating, chatting with friends over IM or text, or, if I'm watching a show with subtitles on tv, then I stretch while I watch.

What's so amazing about it...? If you spent the same time training something else, you'd be good at that too.

Cool.

If you really want to put yourself to the next level, then eat a snack and drink water while you are watching subs.
