Yappr: Learn English by Watching Videos

Yappr
Practice listening to native speakers via fun videos about music, celebrities, news, and more. Yappr videos include transcriptions, translations, and a dictionary on all words. It’s like having you own personal English teacher sitting right by your side.
EFL / ESL students really enjoy watching video clips but often find authentic materials difficult to cope with due to the variety of accents and the speed with which native speakers communicate.
Yappr offers a good solution to this problem with a huge collection of transcribed video clips. As students watch the clip, they see the script appearing in a window alongside.
The videos are separated by level; easy – medium – hard and are also categorised by theme, such as sport, cartoons, nature etc. 
You can watch all the movie clips without registering, but if you do register there is a social networking element to the site and you can also get involved with uploading and transcribing videos for the site.
This is a really useful tool for students and teachers. It would be nice if you could turn off the transcription and try to  work it out for yourselves first and then check the transcription.
