I had always wanted to watch French news or music clips, but there was no easy way to pause, look up words or take notes. Ilini does this and even much more. It's a game changer

When we talk about good sites that specialize in providing video with French interactive subtitles, Ilini is the best quality I’ve come across

A brilliant way to bring authentic up-to-date cultural material into the classroom. Ilini can genuinely broaden students’ horizons and increase motivation, while saving preparation time for the teacher

This resource is SO rich! This is the resource of my dreams. I have always had to type up the scripts of videos myself, or had news reports but no video. This is the best of both worlds
