Home Is Where the Heart Is

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

Here at thisislanguage.com we’ve been working on some exciting new content to share with you all! Lots and lots of you have told us how much you and your students enjoy the different accents showcased in our Spanish videos, so we thought we’d better make sure the same was available for our other languages!

Over the last couple of months, we’ve added a number of new French and German videos filmed in sunny Lyon and (rather) chilly Vienna. So far, these videos have fallen under the Friends and Family, Freetime and Leisure and Education and Work themes.

Well, we’ve got some more good news – we’ve just added a bunch of new videos which fall under the theme of My Area!

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