VoiceTube: Learn English with 25,000 videos

VoiceTube: Learn English with 25,000 videos | Useful Websites for Learning English | Scoop.it
Learning English via Youtube video is an easier way to understand the pronunciation and the usage of vocabulary. Moreover, it's a good way to learn everyday language.
Jo Gakonga's insight:

This is designed with Chinese learners in mind (the translations are all in Chinese) but could be useful for others, too.  It gives subtitles for TED, YT etc videos and you can play the videos back sentence by sentence and translate/ save any vocabulary that you like.
