This site provides the authentic video, audio, and pictures from 35 countries in 25 languages. The materials cover practical topics such as greetings, family, travel, transportation, and shopping, etc. It contains strong cultural content and English transcripts. I like the format of this course as it categorized the learning dialogs in different topic, each topic has a link to the video and script file, plus vocab. Viewers can hear and see the dialogs in their own pace. Hope that this course will include more languages in the future. I can adapt the format to create my web course in my school.
Course: New Additions! CultureTalk features video clips of interviews and discussions with people of many different ages and walks of life. Topics include family, food, education, religious and cultural customs, work, art, sport, travel, and more.
