Youglish Video Site

I heard about a site today that seems useful. Maybe it’s old news and I’m the last to hear about it, but it’s called Youglish and its purpose is to make it easy to find subtitled videos in your chosen language with specific words in the transcript, and – here’s the best part – it even let’s you specify European or Brazilian portuguese! Unlike YouTube it doesn’t give you a post to choose from. If you pick a word like “Guerra” for example, it takes you to a video play list with 198(!) videos in it and the first one is queued up right before the person says the word. So you can hear that and, if you want, croll back and forth. Then you click forward to the next video and maybe it’s a song that contains the word, or whatever, and you can skip ahead, hearing the word in different contexts.
