28. Haitian Creole language web TV (Tele Image)

Tele Image is a web-streamed, web-based TV news & news-entertainment station that also broadcasts on cable in some east coast United States markets. Much of the footage is in Kreyol (Haitian Creole). Because of the visual context of some of the news reporting, and being able to read lips & see gestures, this may be a much more accessible way to practice listening & reinforce vocabulary and grammar than the audio-only programming suggested in others posts on this site.

Programming sources vary, and some speakers speak French and English instead of Kreyol (Haitian Creole), or most commonly move fluidly among the three. There is some footage of post-2010 earthquake Haiti. Technical quality of sound and image varies. I found that my Firefox browser on a mac repeatedly crashed when using the site, but I was able to watch the footage consistently when using Safari. I haven't tested it yet in a Windows environment.
