Nik Peachey sent out a tweet today about a site called Voscreen. After signing-up and choosing your native language from a list of nine, you’re shown a series of very short video TV/movie video clips where a phrase is said. Then, you have a choice of either clicking “I understand” or “Show Me The Script.” If you clip “Show Me The Script,” you’re shown two versions in your native language, and you have to choose which one is correct. Click on one and it shows if it’s the right one or not and then you can move to the next clip (it’s unclear what happens if you click on “I understand” because it doesn’t appear to be working.
It has other bells and whistles, but I couldn’t figure out what they were, and there is no FAQ.
It didn’t appear that the video clips were from YouTube, which would be nice because that means they might get by the student content filter at our school.
I’m adding it to The Best Online Video Sites For Learning English.
