This is a series of short narrative videos and scripts created by users to sample their native language. Bilingual users can translate the scripts into a new language. The key words (nouns, verbs, etc) can be tagged and will be inputted into a searchable database.

Eventually a cross-referenced database of videos/scripts will exist in every possible language, so users can learn any language by way of another.
