    I suggest getting the best movies you like, both in your mother tongue language and in the language you plan to learn. If you are learning the language from scratch, you may start by children addressed movies with some adult interest, like Toy Story.

    Besides, you get from the Internet that movie's subtitles, both in your mother tongue language and in the language you are learning. Those files have the .srt extension but they are nothing but plain text, so you can open them with Notepad or similar plain text reader.

    You can watch the movies on your laptop/tablet or in your TV. In both cases, movies have to be watched without subtitles turned on, because subtitles on screen absorb too much attention. If you watch the movies in your laptop/tablet you need to have installed a video player (SMPlayer and VLC are free and good candidates).

    The best way is between 0-6 years old. For adults there is no "best way" to learn a L2; if there was, most likely everybody would be using "that way".
    Mere exposition does not lead to acquisition. If it did, just by listening to the target language on the radio you would eventually reach fluency. Adults do not learn when they listen, but when they understand what they listen to. This is usually achieved through a plan that presents comprehensible input progressively.

    Learning Enlish was an adventurous and a challenging steep climb for me.
    When people heard me converse in English after a few months of my stay in LA, they thought that I had been speaking for years and refused to believe that I did not speak English before LA.
    There are tonnes of online courses, tutorials, and language learning applications all over the internet. Pick any one of these which you think has good content. Eventually, it is up to you how you use this material. I personaly used linguatrip, their native speakers are simply fantastic!
    Most important of all, just have fun! You will feel more motivated in the long run
