Idea for immersion

Hello! I was talking to my girlfriend, who is also practicing French on Duolingo, and as usual we were being sad about how difficult listening comprehension can be. She had an idea that I like, which is to include videos in the immersion section, and have us make subtitles for them (eg, show a French video and have me write English subtitles). It would be great to get all of the internet's videos translated too, after all! I suspect this would not be trivial to implement, but it sure would be cool.

You should check out viki.com. It does basically this and you can browse videos by country.

I like this idea, just articles can be boring. An I want all the speech pronunciations I can get.
