    I have recently bought Simpsons and Family Guy Series 1 from Germany. Both DVDs have German translation (Synchronisierung) and German subtitles. I bought these movies so every day to listen and read in German.

    The problem I have is that the subtitles are meant for hearing impaired people and thus what I hear and what I read differs a lot! Do you know if it is possible to find somewhere subtitles that correspons to what I hear?

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help


    P.S I know that this a little bit out of forum context but this is the only place I know with Germans around.
    Glad you learn german. One of the important languages on earth
    I live now for over 10 years in the US and even though i had previous school english it took me quite a while before i got more fluently in understanding the talk.
    My experience is, that you learn best if you get confronted with the language on a daily base. Very useful is reading, speaking and writing anything that comes new to you.
    Subtitle are never 1:1 translations and capture the meaning of whatever is spoken, but don't give a 100% translation. I think transcripts of a show or any media is a better way since it is 100% the content.
    But i wasn't able to find any german transcripts.
