The Big Bang Theory is an extremely popular comedy in America. It is a charming show based around two socially awkward and extremely brilliant physicists (Leonard and Sheldon) and their beautiful next door neighbor Penny who is a waitress, but dreams of becoming a movie star. Along with these core characters are Leonard and Sheldon’s equally nerdy friends Howard and Raj. In later seasons, Amy and Bernadette become important parts of the show and story lines.

The Big Bang Theory is great for learning culture and higher level vocabulary for second language learners.
