It is a mistake to rely on movie subtitles as reliable translations.

If a student has access to a radio or TV station in the target language, turn it on and leave it on.  He doesn't have to sit in front of the radio for hours, trying to understand every word that is spoken.  However, the more the target language is heard, the easier it will be to understand it.  It may sound crazy, but it works.
