Bombay TV

Well, here's something that's certainly different. On this site, you can choose a short clip from a Bollywood film and add your own subtitles. You can also use the text-to-speech function to hear the subtitles spoken and there are a few languages to choose from. You can even record your own voice to add to the soundtrack. Ideas for using in the classroom are under the video.

  • Use to create amusing, engaging instructional videos for tasks
  • Get language students to create their own subtitle tracks and voiceovers using the target language
  • Learners can practise their pronunciation through the 'microphone' function and send it to friends for peer assessment
  • Media students can use these as a starting point and then continue the next 'episode' through their own filming / storyboarding
Any more ideas? Share them in the comments below. With thanks to Martyn Nayman for bringing this one to my attention.
