About Yabla

Yabla provides an immersive language-learning experience featuring authentic videos with interactive controls.

Yabla’s Smart Subtitle technology allows learners of all levels to improve their listening and vocabulary skills. Features include one-click dictionary definitions, pitch-adjusted slow play, loop play, and subtitle toggling.

Yabla curates a library of authentic videos and produces original content, providing students with a range of difficulty levels, dialects, accents, and cultures. Students learn from the best tutors there are—native speakers using their language in everyday situations.

The name Yabla is derived from the Spanish word habla meaning "he or she speaks, you speak".

Yabla started in 2001 with just a few Spanish videos. Today Yabla features thousands of videos in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese, and English; vocabulary games, personalized flashcard decks, email lessons, and an iOS app to learn on the go.

Our Programming

Yabla licenses authentic content and produces original videos. Our library includes TV shows, cartoons, music videos, documentaries, news segments, language lessons, and more.
