Comment: This is a great website with numerous short video clips, photos and written material addressing culture and different other issues that every language learner needs to know and pay attention to. I like the fact that the clips are short and ?down to the point?. As a language teacher, I noticed that students get overwhelmed with ?too much spoken language?, especially at the early stages of learning a second language. I also like the fact that all video clips are accompanied with a target language transcript and English translation. I personally used Croatian and Serbian materials, and students really enjoyed seeing authentic settings, pictures, language, and cultural messages that came with it.

Technical Remarks:

The site is user friendly and is very simple to navigate. Some of the sounds might need improvement.
