Sharing videos about COVID19 with translations for 28 languages!

Unread post by aimeeteaches »

Hi guys! Just to be upfront, I'm a teacher who works for a site called Globify. Basically we take Western content and add accurate translations to 28 languages that people can view side-by-side English subtitles. We've found that it's actually pretty useful for ESL learners to appreciate English media!

We're starting an initiative for the current global crisis where we take highly informative videos about the virus and translate them to all of our available languages. These videos and translations are 100% free, so you don't need to signup or anything! I just hope this helps someone; it's unfair when the best sources for info can't be accessible to most of the people in the world because they don't understand English.
I hope this can be helpful to anyone out there! Please feel free to share it with any ESL individuals.

Well, we the main site we actually have more than 2000 videos with complete English subtitles and different language translations. Feel free to look! At the moment, we have a very small fee to access all of the subtitles. We're planning on advancing forward for marking the videos with their ESL learner level.

Please support us if you can! But we're creating these videos on COVID-19 to help people.

Also: just created another one!
Coronavirus: What is herd immunity?

Remote learning is getting famous day by day due to covid-19 because every school and college have been shut down because of the virus. I am pretty sure that one day we will be able to go to college but now remote learning is the best option.

There is a danger in just feeding students COVID info that comes only from government sources in which the kids essentially become sponges that absorb government propaganda. I teach secondary school teachers and two high school classes and I encourage them to not only learn COVID terminology in English, but to debate and investigate in English by using this UNCENSORED COVID web site https://ruqqus.com/+plandemic
I suggest every TEFL teacher take a visit to https://reddit.com/r/TEFLscams BEFORE they send off their resumes.
