DVDs are great for learning foreign languages in a new technique pioneered by Professor Rex Curry. Popular movies are dubbed and subtitled in foreign languages on a single DVD disk.  “Blazing Saddles” or “The Three Stooges” show new hilarity in Spanish or French. Some DVDs have English, Spanish, Portugese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai language selections.

DVDs are superior to videotapes for foreign language studies.  You can pause a DVD to alter dubbing and subtitling while a movie plays. You can listen to spoken English while reading subtitles in Spanish or French; You can listen to a dubbed foreign language while reading subtitles in English; You can listen to a foreign language and read it as subtitles;  Or you can listen in a foreign language without subtitles.  

DVD versatility allows easy pausing to read subtitles or to decipher a phrase spoken in a foreign language.  DVD provides easy repeating of phrases and scenes. The spoken language and the subtitles can be easily switched back and forth to confirm the conversation in English.    

Foreign subtitles and foreign languages often do not correspond word-for-word to the English counterparts on DVDs, but that is rarely the case with any translation.  Foreign subtitles often do not correspond word-for-word to the foreign dubbed language on the same DVD.   But in either circumstance the options are always close enough to aid in interpretation.

Comedy movies make foreign languages more fun to learn.

For reasons that are not clear, many English DVD titles provide the added choice of only dubbed French, and only Spanish subtitles.  Apparently, its easy to obtain French dubbing and Spanish subtitling, but not the other way around.  

DVD labels must be read carefully to discern which foreign languages are available and which are spoken only, subtitled only, or both.

These DVD are good examples of common titles: Blazing Saddles (spoken language choices: English, Spanish, and French; Subtitles: English, Spanish, and French); The Three Stooges Curly Classics (spoken language choices: English, Spanish, Portugese; Subtitles: English, Spanish, Portugese and French); National Lampoon’s Animal House Collector’s Edition (spoken language choices: English, Spanish, and French; Subtitles: English, Spanish, and French); About Last Night from TriStar (spoken language choices: English, Spanish, and French; Subtitles: English, Spanish, and French); So I Married an Axe Murderer (spoken language choices: English, Spanish, Portugese; Subtitles: English, Spanish, Portugese, Chinese, Korean, Thai); Shine (spoken language choices: English and French; Subtitles: English, French and Spanish); Grosse Pointe Blank (spoken language choices: English and French; Subtitles: English and Spanish); American Pie (spoken language choices: English and French; Subtitles: English and Spanish);

There is also a DVD music video of the Buena Vista Social Club featuring Cuban singers in the Spanish language with English subtitles.  The same songs are available on music CD, which can then be played in the car and elsewhere to reinforce the Spanish learned from the DVD.

There are also music CDs of popular English songs performed in Spanish. The group ABBA performed its greatest hits in Spanish and it is available on Amazon and elsewhere.

Foreign films are windows to other worlds. The DVD entitled "Olympia" shows shows the American athlete Jesse Owens winning gold medals in the 1936 Olympics in Germany under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP). The film was part of the evidence that led to the discovery by the historian Dr. Rex Curry, that the straight-arm salute originated in the USA as part of the early Pledge of Allegiance. The original salute started with a military salute that was then stretched out toward the flag. In practice, children would simply extend the military salute straight out toward the flag, and that was the origin of the salute adopted later by German National Socialists. The film also helped lead to Dr. Curry's discovery that the swastika, although an ancient symbol, was used sometimes by the NSGWP to represent crossed "S" letters for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Mexico adopted socialist flag salutes that originated in the United States (from 1892). The National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) also adopted the U.S. flag gesture America's stiff-arm salute) after it had been used in the USA for decades.

The stiff-arm salute was not an ancient Roman salute. The "ancient Roman salute" is a myth, as shown by Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").

It is part of Dr. Curry's work exposing the Roman Salute: cinema, history, ideology and myths.

The Pledge of Allegiance in the USA originally began with a classic military salute (to the forehead) that was then extended out toward the flag. The initial military salute was sometimes performed from the chest. In practice, the 2nd gesture was performed palm down because children simply extended the military gesture outward.  

The Pledge was written by a National Socialist (Francis Bellamy) who wanted military socialism in the USA, Mexico, Germany and worldwide.

The history of Mexico is the subject of a lot of research, including the influence of socialist dogma in the country. Much of the work overlooks the historical impact upon Mexico of the socialist movement in the United States.

Socialists in the USA share blame for the poverty of socialism in Mexico, as shown in the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry. Edward Bellamy's book "Looking Backward" (1888) and Francis Bellamy's straight-arm salute in the "Pledge of Allegiance" (1892) both influenced Emilio Zapata (1910), the leader of Mexico's socialist revolution.

Bellamy wanted his Pledge of Allegiance to spread globally and that is why Bellamy's original pledge did not reference the "flag of the United States of America." Bellamy wrote his pledge so that it could be used in any country. He wanted to spread military socialism worldwide. Bellamy also organized a World Youth Congress in 1892.

Edward Bellamy was the author of the "Looking Backward from 2000 to 1887."  The book was an international bestseller and was tranlsated into every major language including Spanish, German, Russian, and Chinese. It appears by title in many of the major Marxist writings of the day. Clubs sprang up in the USA and worldwide for touting the book's ideas.

The influence of socialists in the USA was so strong that the first socialist revolution occurred in Mexico (1910) preceding the revolutions of the countries of the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million dead under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP).  http://rexcurry.net/bellamy-edward-emiliano-zapata-mexico-socialism.html
