For ComprehensCast, it’s all about spoken language from podcasts, since they provide a limitless amount of recorded speech and address a great variety of topics.
ComprehensCast will focus on Kolokia in the beginning. It will certainly not be the only project for time to come. Stay informed and send an email.
If a podcaster has a good story to tell or if the topic matters a lot in society, shouldn't everybody be able to know about this? Podcasts often contain content that one doesn't find easily elsewhere.
Therefore, ComprehensCast puts transcriptions made for the app available to deaf and hard of hearing people.
What better way to learn a language by using conversations from podcasts? Kolokia will be an app precisely about that.
The first spoken language included in the app will be Dutch. For immigrants coming to work in a Dutch speaking region, it's important to understand and speak colloquial Dutch. It's not always easy to get to master the language fully, since English is widely spoken and understood.
ComprehensCast wants to offer a solution to language learners on a wide range of skills, from developping listening comprehension to reinforcing practice of spoken language.
In the future, podcasts from other Dutch speaking regions will be added. Podcasts in different languages will also be added for new projects. Wondering how things are standing? Just send an email.
For the to become language app, ComprehensCast wants language learners to listen to qualitative podcasts that fit their interests and represent them. Contact is currently being made with the following five podcasts from the Netherlands.
Damn Honey - by Marie Lotte Hagen, Nydia van Voorthuizen
De Eeuw van de Amateur - by Botte Jellema, Ype Driessen, Paulien Cornelisse
Dipsaus - by Anousha Nzume, Ebissé Rouw, Mariam El Maslouhi
Geeky Dingen - by Linda Duits, Sydney Smeets, Thom Aalmoes
Met Nerds Om Tafel - by Randal Peelen, Floris Diemel, Jurian Ubachs
ComprehensCast is proud to work with podcasters that put their work at the disposal of projects. By doing so, podcasts can gain a new audience, since these projects include those that normally wouldn't be able to understand the spoken language.
