SCOLA Insta-Class

SCOLA's Insta-Class service provides a weekly lesson based on a clip from a SCOLA news broadcast. Each lesson includes a video clip, an audio-only version of the clip, a transcript, a translation, a vocabulary list, and a short quiz. You may download lessons or subscribe to an Insta-Class podcast via iTunes. When you download a podcast, each week's lesson is delivered to your computer as (1) video, (2) MP3 audio, (3) MP3 audio with the transcript and/or translation embedded in the file, and (4) a PDF of the transcript, translation, and activities.

A complete list of files available for download is available on the Virtual Global Studio wiki. For legal reasons, these lessons are available only to members of the University of Richmond community. You must be on the University network or running the VPN to gain access to these files.
