What Are 2 Million Language Lovers Watching on YouTube? Posted by Transparent Language on Apr 2, 2014 in Archived Posts
Apparently, they’re watching us! In March, our language-learning YouTube channels reached a combined two million views! To celebrate this landmark, let’s take a look back at some our (and your) favorite videos!
First up, let us take a moment to introduce ourselves, as CEO Michael Quinlan talks a little bit about who we are and what we do here at Transparent Language:
And now, on to the language-y goodness. For the Mandarin fans among us, meet our vlogger Sasha, an American expat living in Beijing. He bounces from one corner of China to the next, taking videos and teaching you some new vocabulary along the way, like in this adventurous video about public transit in Beijing:
Speaking of adventures, our German vlogger Mickey likes to take the language to the next level. If you’re a fan of music, check out his German renditions of popular American songs, like this take on The Beatles’ “Blackbird”:
It’s not all about fun and games with our YouTube videos. We also have a number of dedicated native speakers who post regular language lessons. If you’re learning Spanish, check in with Laura as she posts a new video lesson each week ranging from beginner to advanced:
If you’re more interested in Swedish, you’re in for a treat with our always popular Swedish with Steve series:
Perhaps Portuguese is more your flavor. If so, Leandro and Adir publish videos all the way from Brazil to teach you Portuguese slang, vocabulary, and more!

Hey, I am Brazilian and I watched some of your Brazilian Portuguese videos… There are some that are really not very well explained and sometimes it’d be hard for someone who doesn’t speak Portuguese to understand (especially the slangs).
I was wondering how you choose your vloggers? I’ve been an English teacher in Brazil for a few years, so I’ve got some teaching techniques, and I was always good at Portuguese. I guess I could help to improve the Portuguese channel quality.
