Yappr.com - Improve Your English Watching Videos

Yappr

In this online resource you’ll be able to see videos in English sorted into different categories: recent, most popular, highest-rated, business, celebrities, sports, films and others. The videos have subtitles but they are not shown in the same way as “Yolango”; they are shown in a text box on the right of the video. Personally I prefer the option in “Yolango” because it allows you to see the video easily.

However, Yappr had the great idea of showing English subtitles in a text box, and also other subtitles translated into your own language. Moreover, it is possible to listen to the video at a slower pace, which is ideal for those words or sentences that are harder to understand.

Also the web page has a well-developed social aspect to it, which allows you to become friends with other Yappr members and you can actually see what they are doing. The Yappr community is very attractive and offers:
  • The possibility of joining a live chat for talking to other people (and thus practice written English).
  • A forum where we can raise doubts, opinions and other issue that we’d like to comment on.
  • The opportunity to look for other members.
  • "What's yappening?", a play on words from "What's happening?" in order to see what’s going on in the Yappr community.
A very interesting web page to improve listening, practise English and have fun!
