        I didn't notice he has this channel, thank you. Videos there are shorter and more concise.

        I collect the videos here:

        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.

      Right after posting this I found a whole bunch that only have auto-generated subtitles. Oh well... There are a few, at least, with real captions.

        I find that the auto generated subtitles to be pretty close, not perfect though, but still usable.

    French-Doc Seven

    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.

    Wikipedia is available in a few German dialects for anyone interested:

    Bavarian/Austrian -

    Low German (Plattdeutsch) -

    Palatinate German -

    Pennsylvania German -

    In general though there are a lot of smaller languages and dialects on Wikipedia, so instead of listing all of them I'll leave a link to the full list.

    November 16 laiku: 16:58
    • Swedishfinnpolymath fi Suomija

      One small problem with the wikipedia for smaller languages is that some articles are really short. There is however, a feature called quality articles (or something like that), for example, for Catalan it's at the left top corner "Articles de qualitat". The quality articles button is however not always so easy to find.

      • gurkenwerfer us United States

        I didn't know about that, thank you. Do you (or anyone else, for that matter) happen to know any place to find modern German e-books for free? I have had a lot of trouble finding them, especially because I would like to read literature from the GDR but a lot of it seems to not be online.

        November 16 laiku: 18:12
        • Swedishfinnpolymath fi Suomija

          Sadly, I can't help you in that aspect, the only GDR literature that I know of is someway inspired of GDR rather than from GDR. If you are interested in GDR, I might add that MrWissen2go Geschite has many videos with real cc on GDR (although you might already be aware of that).

          Free online German library from Goethe Institut

          In USA:

          In the library, one can search for: A1 , A2, B1, B2, C1, C2

          which are the European levels of language learning.

          A1 is beginner.

          C2 is better than native.

          For other countries google: goethe onleihe name_of_your_country

            Wow, this website (the Goethe library) seems to be just what I was looking for. It has some DDR literature on it too. Thank you so much for recommending.

    I've been wondering to myself if the LingQ staff might someday add an extra tab to the website: one for sharing external links to resources such as these being listed here. For example, users could post links to external sites, and maybe when they do it might generate a 'fair use' screenshot not unlike when you post a link to a YouTube video on Facebook. Maybe eventually, functionality like leaving reviews or even using the user submitted links as a part of one's recommendations could be added.

    Since a tab like this would just be directing traffic to these external sites, there would be no copyright issues to worry about of course. An entire world of (links to) resources could be added.

    Of course, automated organization of entries and having a system to prevent duplicate URLs being submitted by users would be a thing. There would also need to be a system for flagging resource links that are no longer available (video taken down, etc.) so that they could be removed. It would be a big job for someone, I'm guessing.

    It seem the Netflix caption imports aren't working again. I tried with various different series in both firefox and chrome. It keep saying "No appropriate captions were found".

      I'll double check again with the devs - Some series should be fine, both audio and subs (Usagi Drop for example).

      Have you tried ? LingQ can import both audio and subs from that site's content.

    Any chance we could get podcasts included here too? I love this source as almost a massive repo by which I can discover new and interesting things in other languages. It can sometimes be hard to discover podcasts that are genuinely for natives and not specifically designed "for learners"
