A couple of posts ago I mentioned that ted.com have videos with subtitles, sometimes in Portuguese. This week I discovered a website that goes one better – yappr.com. It is built for the language learning community and has a selection of videos from many genres and topics that you can watch with two streams of subtitles – English and another language. The subtitles are generated within the community of users on the site and then peer checked and approved. There seems to be a large Brazilian Portuguese presence on the site and I’ve already watched a few videos this way with a Brazilian Portuguese stream of subtitles. Fantastic language resource, check it out here: www.yappr.com.
