As we approach the end of 2014, Mark has recorded a special news podcast to look back at the past 12 months and to look forward to some of the exciting new content coming in 2015.
2014 has been an exciting year for us here at Radio Lingua. We’ve released 84 episodes across our range of courses including Coffee Break French Season 4, our new Coffee Break Spanish Espresso and Coffee Break German which has just finished its first season. We’ve also introduced our new gameshow, the Coffee Break French and Coffee Break Spanish Two Minute Challenges.
In 2014 we have delivered over 16 million free language lessons to our learners around the world, bringing the total number of free language lessons delivered since we started back in 2006 to over 155 million! We hope you’ve enjoyed learning one of the 26 languages we offer!
High Five French Family Edition
This year we’ve also introduced our French course for younger learners, High Five French, featuring presenters Emma and Mathilde. High Five French has been popular in schools throughout the UK and we’ve just released the Family Edition of High Five French, so if you have children or grandchildren who would like to learn French with this fantastic video resource, you can find out more here. Early in the New Year we’ll be offering some free High Five French audio lessons – there’s more information in the news podcast, and you can learn more about High Five French here. If you’re interested in using High Five French in a school, please visit our Schools page.
Coffee Break Spanish Season 4
We’ve also announced our fourth season of Coffee Break Spanish. From January 2015 you can join presenters Mark and Carmen as they follow a serialised story featuring a range of characters from around the Spanish-speaking world. This show has been specially created to help advanced learners of Spanish build their confidence in tricky grammatical constructions and increase their range of idiomatic expressions. Find out more about Season 4 here.
Coffee Break Italian
We’re also introducing a new series for Italian learners. In January 2015 we’ll be launching Coffee Break Italian. The forty lessons of this first season will introduce learners to the language and you’ll start to develop confidence in using the language in a variety of situations. Mark takes on the role of teacher for Coffee Break Italian and is joined by learner Katie and native speaker Francesca. There’s more information about Coffee Break Italian here.
