The Yabla video player features translations by native speakers fluent in both languages. The meaning of words and phrases is reflective of the dialect and culture in the video. Yabla has no automatically generated translations. We give users accurate and context-specific meanings.

Click on difficult words to look them up in our multisource dictionary and add them for later review. Practice them in the flashcard exercise, available via our web app. Flashcard review helps to memorize new vocabulary.

I want to like this!

I just wish this app were a bit better. Minor technical issues with crashes, but nothing too bad, and the media player in the app is really slick and easy to use - only a couple of problems with the automatic look-up. Problems are mostly with content, which is all over the map in terms of quality. The system that filters content level seems almost arbitrary, and review activities are extremely dull and repetitive.

Again, the media player is great, but it seems like there are other ways to get a similar experience without paying for this subscription.

Absolutely Worth It Get This

I have been using this app daily for half a year. I was struggling with watching videos in Chinese, and now, I am finally seeing progress in this area because of this app. It is totally worth the money. I also like that this app does not give those silly reminders to rate it.
