Using subtitles on TV

Would it be better to watch in English with Spanish subtitles or watch Spanish with English subtitles?

Spanish with english subs.
I suck at learning language but I'll explain my reason.
If you have Spanish subs you're still only reading. For most reading isn't the problem - they're missing out in listening skills.
Just rememeber English subs often aren't a direct translation.

May I suggest Spanish with Spanish subtitles and a dictionary on your phone/ tablet/ computer. I recommend linguee. My opinion is that you should not concentrate on what you don't know but on what you do know. Look-up words that repeat. This does come with a warning, subtitles do not always follow the spoken word. The meaning will be the same but not the wording.

Don't get yourself down because you don't understand what's going on and be proud of every time you understand something. Baby steps but be proud of your progress.
