We’ve just added some brand new, authentic French and German videos to our website! This time, they fall under the topic of Education and Work.

Over the last couple of months, we’ve added a number of new French and German videos to the Friends & Family and the Freetime and Leisure sections of the website.

Good news, we’ve just added even more! This time they fall under the Education and Work category.

We’ve grouped our new videos by topic below – all you need to do is type the video ID into your thisislanguage.com search bar!
