Digital TV channels

 

Digital English or American  TV channels are another possibility we have at hand. If you have access to some of them, so much the better. Even if not, provided you have a good TV set, you’ll be able to watch some films in their original version: English on many occasions, as you know, with subtitles or without them.

On the Internet, we can find good websites  like TED, TED, WHICH  is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. On TED.com, they make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free. More than 900 TEDTalks are now available, with more added each week. All of the talks are subtitled in English, and many are subtitled in various languages. These videos are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license, so they can be freely shared and reposted.
