Interesting language learning interview
 
I thought this video with "MattvsJapan" interviewing Stephen Krashen was interesting. Both are strong proponents of immersion style language learning. Lots of things to think about here:

I wish there were more immersion style learning videos on youtube for tagalog.
 
I liked these ones: www.youtube.com/watc h?v=QV2vBlDmakU / www.youtube.com/watc h?v=fWLUz1VbGe8 , but there are not that many like that (i.e. extra slow and easy).

@Giorgio Those are pretty good (especially the outtakes ; ) )! The problem is immersion style videos are pretty tough...they're expensive to produce, and hard to create content/topics that appeal to a wide audience...

@jkos yes, he's funny! But I agree, making it appealing to a large audience is not easy. There are children stories, but if they were baby-level (aka what I need), then the story would be boring. If they are for older children, they are impossible to understand for total beginners. I found children's stories with English subtitles, but I'm not sure how useful they really are if I just read the subtitles. I'd have to watch them twice, once with subtitles and once without, but again: boooring.
It would be best to have videos like Pappa Jedder's, but the low viewer count he has is probably the reason he is not posting much these days.
