Sugestion: allow videos to be posted in the immersion section
It would be great if we could embed videos in the immersion section. Then we can write a transcript as the translation for this video. (Both a transcript in the original language, and a transcript in the translated language)
This is a great idea. However, instead of doing a transcript, it would be great if we could get points by answering questions to see if we understood it. The most difficult skill to learn in a new language is understanding the spoken word. This is also the most basic skill, the one we learned first when we were babies learning our first language. Videos really help a lot with this. Once we can understand the language we are learning, speaking it is almost automatic. I would love to see videos on immersion.
Fabulous queendeeny! ... and I have even seen an example of how these questions can be socially created... I can't remember the name ofhe particular site, but essentially students write questions (usually multiple choice) and other students vote questions up or down (just like the comments on this discussion board) and the most popular questions are used more often than the least popular questions.
