Language learning through captioning and revoicing

Laura McLoughlin's insight:

ClipFlair is a web platform for foreign language learning through interactive re-voicing and captioning of clips. The ClipFlair Gallery hosts easily accessible and shareable activities in 15 languages which can be used by teachers in their courses or carried out by learners independently. Examples of activities include asking learners to subtitle a clip to improve their listening and writing skills, or add their own voice recordings to practice pronunciation. Teachers can choose clips, images or other materials from the Gallery to create new activities in the ClipFlair Studio. But the heart of ClipFlair is the Social Network, hosting a Community of learners and teachers with an interest in audiovisuals and languages.
