Has anyone tried using this site? It looks pretty interesting and it was recommended by a friend. It's limited to US and Canada though which sucks for me.

I used viki a lot in the US. There is a "learn" mode for dramas, which is really cool. You can look up words by clicking the subtitles, and see both English and Korean subtitles at the same time for Korean dramas, for example. I haven't used it systematically for my studies; haven't thought through exactly what I'd want to do with it. But the technology is nice.


That being said, I haven't actually used the "viki learn" page. It looks like it does more than what I mentioned, so may be worth my investigation. I'm in Thailand now so I can't see it. Also, viki is very limited in languages. I think it's just Korean and Chinese, with a few samples from a handful of other languages.

Can you even see material on vikitv? It's country restricted in Korea and Thailand, and I imagine for you guys too. Another answer is VPN.

Checked it just now and I can. Is this like a streaming site? I'm working now and can't really stream stuff.

Interesting. :) I mostly watch dramas these days from Netflix. That and torrents. I'll try this and see how it's linked to learning Korean. :)
