No, not by watching alone. If you're already taking lessons in the same language, then it helps a lot. For example, all those creative juices I had writing essays in the French language comes courtesy of Radio-Canada.

I don't speak mandarin as fluently as people whose first language is that...but I did learn how to speak mandarin by watching dramas & of course, by practicing it with my Chinese friends... It's hard for me to pronounce certain words but usually, I have a rough idea of what people are saying in mandarin...

You could learn the basics, I guess....though I don't think it's really reliable.

you possibly can.
i'm cantonese,
and by watching mandarin dramas, i actually learned a lot of mandarin.
knowing some type of chinese really helps in learning a different chinese language.

... i really don't think you'll be fluent in it... or learn the whole language at all... but perhaps just small words

Probably a bit here and there...
Highly unlikely to be able to learn the entire language...
Although it is possible.

If the language you're trying to learn is close to your own mother tongue... that helps alot.
But still... why not just buy a one way air ticket and get yourself stuck in that country... you'd save alot more time and electricity from watching all those shows. Save the earth!

Just short phrases and single-word answers. And I suppose it'll help with pronunciation as well, to an extent. Wouldn't really help in teaching how to form your own sentences though.

Unless you watch a show that teaches that language? :O

not really the proper construction of the sentences but at least you'd be able to understand a bit of the language..(as long as the subs are accurate)
