YouTube videos to go alongside Duolingo?
First of all, I would be interested to know if any such videos exist, and if not, would Duolingo disapprove of such a thing being made?
I'd like to make a series of videos, 1 for each "skill", each of which goes over the relevant tips & notes and any other helpful information, along with some sentences from the skill being spoken in a short dialogue by a native German speaker - possibly one that can expand with each video's new sentence.
Does anybody have any thoughts on this, and would any native German speakers be interested in helping if anybody thinks it would be helpful?
Edit: it seems there is a fair bit of interest, so I will start making some when I got home from my holidays. Bear in mind they may be useless, but I will try my best!
Good idea, I haven't found that kind of videos ! I myself have made 4 videos including funny sentences from different languages shown in situations where you would use them, so a bit different. I have thought about that what you wrote, but I just don't have enough time to do that. 1 video for each skill sounds really good and useful for many people. That could be a bit like the walkthrough videos in different games in youtube so you definitely will have an audience, which is growing all the time as duolingo gets more users and languages from the incubator.
This is perhaps what you have in mind? https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLk1fjOl39-53GxQIn1Hxdouokf0J0SDpl Well, at least first few episodes of this channel.
