Abstract: This paper reviews the use of Captioned Video and introduces the use of Same-Language-Subtitling (SLS), or Subtitled-Music-Video as a repeated reading exercise. The basic SLS exercise has students repeatedly viewing brief excerpts of musical video with dynamic subtitles while completing matching cloze-style worksheets. In a more in depth SLS activity students use Karafun, a karaoke program, to create and manipulate SLS projects for class presentation. This is a simple format with an enormous potential for future development and applications.
