Easy Languages
Welcome to the Easy Languages Channel! Easy Languages is a non-profit video project aiming to help people worldwide learn languages through authentic street interviews. We also aim at exposing the street culture of our participating partner countries abroad, portraying situations from the every day life that are unlikely to be seen in regular media coverage. Episodes are produced in local languages at different locations around the globe and focus on different topics. All of our episodes contain subtitles in both the original language as well as in English -- this is an important feature for helping language learners of all abilities.
