Ilini is a website with real French videos for French learners. A free membership will give you access to videos, quizzes and 10 of your most recent vocabulary words, while the premium membership will give you access to unlimited vocabulary words and transcripts with worksheets. There are videos for beginner, intermediate, and advanced learners that cover various topics: news, culture, music, entertainment, sports, society, and more. You can choose to focus on adding new vocabulary to your flashcard deck or taking a quiz after watching the video. You can also slow down the speed of the video and watch it with or without English subtitles (except when taking the quiz). Ilini is similar to Yabla, but it is cheaper and has different types of activities, like quizzes and worksheets, to train your listening comprehension. It currently has a more limited selection of videos than Yabla, though, so if you are an advanced learner, it may be better to use the free version until they have updated the site a bit more. You can also check out Caption Pop, which doesn’t have any comprehension activities but is a free service for subtitles and translations of YouTube videos.
