Languages are so cool but learning them can be tedious. We're trying a little experiment to hopefully make it a bit more entertaining.

What?

We make videos of people conversing in two different languages. For example: one speaks English and the other speaks Spanish. Because both people understand both languages, it's a natural conversation.

Why?

Context. If you can follow half of the conversation in a language you understand, the other half should be simpler to comprehend. This is the same as listening to one side of a telephone conversation. Based only on that half, you can usually guess what the other side has said.

Improving your listening comprehension skills in more traditional ways can be difficult. If you miss a few sentences, you can lose the context of the conversation. Context is everything. When you know what is being discussed, you can miss a few words here and there and still follow along confidently.
