I didn’t notice he has this channel, thank you. Videos there are shorter and more concise.
I collect the videos here: Login - LingQ
Hope it’ll save someone time importing it and separately downloading the soundtracks.
For Canadian French, I can’t believe I haven’t stumbled across this before. Usually when I check out anything from the CBC, I often haven’t found anything like transcripts, which would help with learning. However, the few videos I’ve tried from this CBC YouTube channel have French-Canadian captions provided that you can turn on in the settings.
Doc Seven is a info channel but in a more informal way, the content creator seems to be maybe in his 30’s. He makes videos on different topics along the lines of “the seven most …” types of videos. He speaks a quite informal and fast paced french with some anglicism and slang words so it might be good if you look for something different form the French equivalent of BBC English.
Another good thing about his channel is that he introduces “in almost every” video another French You Tuber so you might find other channels through Doc Seven
This Geography channel, called Geography Now has a lot of CC subtitles (submitted by fans) in various languages. The languages varies quite a lot from video to video. At the time of writing the Nigeria video has only English and Norwegian subtitles while the North Korean has in 10 different languages (such as Indonesian and Polish). If I remember correctly some have CC in up to 25 different languages.
These are three interesting channels that I have found, nota bene (is a history channel), Links the sun (pop culture) and Vin Stache focuses on wine. The first two channels seem to have for the most part proper subtitles.
I am studying Russian and use a business newspaper called Kommersant. You can see the articles in Russian and import them into linq. Thereafter one can see the articles translated to English.
This can be seen at https://www.kommersant.ru/
A german newspaper called stern has a video series where they invite 6 people who represent the opposites of a topic in a debate. If you have watched the YouTube channel Jubilee when you are familiar with the format.
Hi Eric. I don’t think what I’m doing is the best you can find but as I’m creating free resources for French learners and I’m trying to help here on Lingq I would really appreciate if you’d consider adding my site The French Instinct www.katyslanguages.fr and my channel THE FRENCH INSTINCT by Katy - YouTube Thanks a lot
