Speaking of movies and books, it's fine by me for them to be in any language possible as long as it is good. Regarding books in my language, i'm aware it's literature is really good. I've made a start, and i hope to proceed. I really want to.
Movies, yes, there should be English subtitles. And the books should be in English. I've given watching movies in languages i don't understand a try and i've failed miserably. There are good movies out there and i so want to watch them, but the language is the big barrier. I'm trying to watch Marathi movies presently. And some are quite good.
