A Whole Lot of Holidays!

by Laura Kernaghan
June 6, 2019

We’ve just added some brand new, authentic French and German videos to our website! This time they fall under the Holidays and Travel category.

Here at thisislanguage.com, we’ve been working on improving the linguistic variety available on our site! On top of our Spanish speakers from Colombia and the Sicilian natives we’ve filmed in the past, we’ve also added our first non-German German accent and our most southerly French accent yet!

We’ve already added some of these fantastic new French and German videos to the Friends and FamilyFreetime and LeisureEducation and Work, My Area and Home and Health categories.

Well, it’s the start of June, the sun is shining and we’ve just added even more new videos! This time, they fall under the Holidays and Travel category – the perfect way to kick start that countdown to summer!

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