I figured out a way to improve my Japanese and I just wanted to share it. ^^
Step 1: Go to the youtube Channel of FNN-News. http://www.youtube.com/user/FNNnewsCH?feature=w...
Step 2: Select a video and watch it.
Step 3: Open the video description and click on the link. This link will open the FNN-website and you can find the transcript there. Quite often this text is an exact transcript of the words spoken by the newscaster. Even when it isn’t, it’s pretty close.
Step 4: Open a "youtube to mp3"-website like this one http://www.youtube-mp3.org . Personally, I use a software for that.
Step 5: Copy&paste the transcript to LingQ, upload the audio file. Done.
This whole process takes only a minute or so. Pretty neat :)
YouTube is a great place to find interesting videos for language learning. Now if only I was interested in learning the guitar...
You found out !?! Ô.ô
Now I have to kill you. Please send me your adress and a photo via E-mail, that´d be quite helpful.
Tokyo MX is another news channel that posts videos with transcripts to YouTube:
Most of the transcript will typically be in the description but sometimes you will have to click the link to see the full transcript. Longer videos will normally only have the intro transcribed.
