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, and how beneficial exposure to this variety can be in the classroom. We thought we’d better make sure the same was available for our other languages, so off we went to Lyon and (a very chilly) Vienna.
We’ll be adding 500 new French and German videos from these trips over the course of the next few months, which means lots of new faces, hours of as-current-as-can-be authentic language and thousands of interactive exercises.
This week we’ve released the first batch of videos, which comes under the Friends and Family theme. Here’s a table of all the new clips, along with their ID number. Just stick the number in the thisislanguage.com search bar and you’re away!
