Abstract

Movies and TV shows are probably the most attractive media of language learning, and the associated subtitle is an important resource in the learning process. Despite its significance, subtitle has never been ex-ploited effectively as it could be. In this paper we present ENGtube, which is a vid-eo service for ESL (English as Second Language) learners. The key component of this service is an integrated environment for displaying the video clips, the source subtitle and the translated subtitle with rich information at users‟ disposal. The rich in-formation of subtitle is produced by vari-ous speech and language technologies.
