An Apple a Day…

May 9, 2019

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

Here at thisislanguage.com we’ve been working on some exciting new content to share with you all! After a lot of positive feedback on the different accents showcased in our Spanish videos, we thought we’d better make sure the same was available in our other languages! So, off we went to Lyon and (a very chilly) Vienna.

So far, the videos that we’ve added have fallen under the Friends and Family, Freetime and Leisure, Education and Work and My Area themes. Well, we’ve just added even more new videos! This time, they fall under the Home and Health category.

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