I watched Sherlock Holmes movies as a child. I watched all of them and I really liked it though. A movie or a computer game could be a way to improve your English, but I haven't got the time for it now. Maybe the language which they use in the movie isn't modern.

These days you can drown in the information which is available on the internet.

Yes I have watched sherlock holmes movies and I really liked though, l don't have watched series or read books about it, when I was teen I used to watch CSI but after a long time become bore. My favorite series and movies are thrillers. There is a new series on netflix called Queen’s Gambit is really good, is about a girl without parents that made addicted to tranquillisants at the orphanage, at the same time she becomes the best chess player ever.

I enjoy reading the Agatha Christie's novel books, especially the murder on orient express. Therefore, my favorite detective is Hercuile Poirot. I also like detective Peralta of brooklyn 99.

I was reading one time sherlock holmes book published by oxford bookworms series but I did not read all the book so my information is limited about him like he is detective and he lived in London thats it but I exploring new details like he is not series person . I like one documentary about arrest criminals who are brings drugs and want enter to the USA

Hello guys!
I love to watch Law and Order.It is a nice tv show,I recommend it to everyone I know.

I’m like Jo who said the crime stories are not her things. I’ve never found them interesting but fearful. When I used to be a student, I had to know one of my fellow student, a friend of mine who was hooked on crime programmes like news, films, magazines, books and stuff. He could watch something like that on TV in the evening before going to bed. I wondered how he could sleep well after watching. Everybody has their own interests.

Hello

I watched Sherlock Holmes movies as a child. I have only every three days time to learn with the elementary podcast series, because I have got a long list of resources for which I need three days to complete.

I like Sherlock Holmes. I know some movies have made in this name . I watched one when I was a child and it was the best one. The movie starring Jeremy Berett as Sherlock Holmes. I liked Jeremy berette I knew her from the film "My fair lady", one of my favourite movies that time.

I really enjoyed watching this series every week that time . I also remember at the same time I watched two other series based on the famous Agatha Christie's novels : Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.

I also watched an Iranian series when I was about 11 or 12 which is named " Mozde Tars" maybe I can translate it to Reward of fear. I was so affected by the series on that age .

A little question: how and when I have to use "though" at the end of the sentense?

"I'm not going to tell you any more, though"
