    Subtitles as a language learning tool

  • Stick to digital content. Specifically, the kind you can consume in your browser so you can easily copy and paste or utilize Yomichan for instant lookups. This doesn't just work for text-only content like books, stories and websites. You can watch subtitled videos in your browser using sites like https://video.fluentcards.com/. For games, pick one that has the Japanese script available online. For some titles like Ace Attorney, Chrono Trigger or Tales of Vesperia there are even sites that have the English and Japanese dialogue side by side, which makes following along and looking things up a breeze.
