"The English Adventurer"

Recently, a student in our course’s Facebook group asked for resource recommendations that he could find on Amazon Prime.

Even if you don’t have this service, you could look for these titles online!

Watching high-quality TV shows and movies is, of course, entertaining. However, it will also improve your listening comprehension.

Apart from that, these are titles that most other students will not seek out. Thus, if you bring them up on your Speaking Exam, you will stand out in front of the examiner!
