Active listening (Auto-pause listening) will focus on helping you improve your listening skills in an effective way. Active listening is a combination of comprehension listening and bottom-up listening (listening for details or focused). This means you will need to pay attention to the actors speaking each dialogue. The movie will be automatically paused after each dialogue. The subtitles for the dialogue can be shown at the same time or after the actor speaks, depending on your preferences.
Here’s how to practice active listening on Netflix:
Step 1: Click the setting icon (1) and scroll down to the Other Settings; then click Auto-pause mode (2). If you want the subtitles to display later, choose Delay Subtitles (3). You can choose the delay time of the subtitle at the selection box next to Show subtitle after (4)
If you want the movie’s subtitles to be paused while the mouse is hovering over subtitles then check the box next to Pause on Mouse hover over subtitles (5)
Step 2: Listen to each dialogue carefully and repeat the dialogue when the video is paused. You can repeat as many times as you like. Try to imitate the way the actor speaks.
Step 3: Check your results when the subtitles are displayed (if you choose “Delay Subtitle“)
Step 4: Press Space (6) to move the next subtitle
Note: You can click the icon Auto-pause (7) to turn off the Auto-pause mode.

Active listening (Auto-pause listening) is a brand-new feature that has been launched recently by the eJOY Team. Active listening will focus on helping you dramatically improve your listening skills.
Active listening is a combination of comprehension listening and bottom-up listening (listening for details or focused). This method of listening will focus on language forms at word and sentence levels.
Native speakers often ‘smash’ words together when they speak, which makes it hard for us to recognize every single word in a sentence. For example, in American English the phrase ‘what’s up?’ often sounds more like ‘wassup?’
The best way to deal with this difficulty is to practice active listening. By practicing active listening, you’ll get used to differences between how words sound on their own and how they sound in context.
Here are steps to practice active listening game
- Step 1: Listen to each dialogue carefully (you can listen to it as many times as you want)
- Step 2: Repeat the dialogue when the video is paused
- Step 3: Check your results when the subtitles are displayed
- Step 4: Tap on any circle to re-listen to the respective dialogue. Pay attention to your errors
Notice: Remember to adjust the subtitle delay time according to your listening level
One of the language learning habits that many of us have in common is learn individual words instead of phrases or sentence patterns. And this way of learning is just a waste of time and effort. It simply doesn’t work. You can learn many words, maybe 10 to 20 new words a day. But you don’t know how to use them and you will forget them in a very short period of time.
If you want to improve your English quickly, you must learn the way native speakers speak/ write, learn the phrases they often use. That’s why learning English phrases with context is one of the most effective.
What can Phrasebook help you with learning English?
- Save any phrases or sentences to your word book with only several mouse clicks away, which will help you save a ton of time
- Learn English vocabulary in context
- Learn common phrases/ sentences that English native speakers use in daily conversations
- Play games to remember those phrases/ sentences forever.
