    • Thanks! I don’t think romaji would be very productive for the student, but I’ll play with displaying both English and Japanese. I’m not sure how to do it yet technically, but I’ll look into it.

      • If the video has subtitle tracks for two languages like Japanese and English, there are browser extensions (Language Learning with Youtube for one) that can show the two at the same time. There are some people (like me) who prefer to not look at the English version and just try to understand the Japanese.
