Thanks so much for your Quick answer. What a helpful team . Best regards

When I read transcript I understand all word what used in the movie, but when I watch it without transcript I understand nothing! What should I do for understanding listening well?

Hello Sensei,
Listening is often a challenge because we can't control how fast the words come, and we can't go back and check the way that we can when we are reading.  Apart from that, when we speak the words are not separate but are run together so a whole sentence can sound like one word!  It can be difficult, I know, and the best way to improve is to practise.
Using the transcript is a good idea.  You can listen and read at the same time, which will help you to recognise the words as you hear them.  Try listening and reading the first time, then listening again without the transcript the second time.  The more you practise, the better you will get and there are a lot of different videos and audio recordings you can listen to (click).
Another thing that can help with listening is trying to get used to connected speech - the way we run words together when we speak.  Use the transcript and try to listen to how the words change when we say them quickly.  This will help you to get used to listening to natural speech.
Good luck with your learning and remember - practise, practise and practise some more!
Best wishes,
