Netflix cartoons to learn English (or any language)

Hi everyone! I want to recommend my favorite children’s cartoons for learning English (or any other language).

Why children’s cartoons?

  • The characters talk slower and use simpler words.
  • The content is easier to understand.
  • Unlike live action dubs (doblajes), cartoon dubs sound great in any language because even the original language was voice acted.

Beginner
Peppa Pig
Simon

Intermediate
Octonauts
Pokemon
Spongebob Squarepants

Advanced
Dragon Prince
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts
Trollhunters
Spirit: Riding Free

Super Advanced
If your English is REALLY advanced, I would recommend live action movies over cartoons because they are more challenging. :wink:

I would also recommend “The Magic School Bus” for beginner/intermediate! They use vocabulary that can be used in everyday life and you learn specialized words for topics about the body, space, the environment etc.

It’s also my childhood favorite :smiley:

For Japanese, Aggretsuko

These are some brilliant recommendations @charhew! :star_struck:
I’m currently busy learning German and therefore make use of this strategy quite often.
By watching these super easy cartoons I get used to hearing ‘real life’ German (even though super high pitched at times), and I also get a better understanding of some of the basic uses of words that I might be unsure of.

I finished watching Avatar a few weeks ago and I think it’s one of the best series ever! So if there’s anyone that still hasn’t watched it, I can promise you that it’s going to be time well invested!
I should watch it again in other languages :grimacing:
