Slower Documentary Video Website   Leave a comment

I just found a list of documentary websites that have some slower English videos for students.  Listening to documentary videos is a much better means of learning English than watching American comedy and drama television shows and movies, because the English in documentaries tends to be the polite and formal English used in business and academics.  There is too much slang and informal English in American television and in movies.

A website that has some good documentary videos suitable for English learners with slower English is here:

A caution I have is that not all of these videos are in slow, measured English, but I think many of you will find good videos to help improve your listening skills.  Here is one:

If you click on this video actually in You Tube, it has a transcript, so you can put it in Readlang as well and track your new vocabulary words!
