This weekend sees the launch of new units in Coffee Break Spanish (lesson 11), Coffee Break French (lesson 41) and Show Time Spanish (lesson 11). In addition to this new content, Walk, Talk and Learn French episode 1 was published yesterday.
We're delighted to announce a brand new show from Radio Lingua - Walk, Talk and Learn French. This podcast introduces French grammar as you've never seen it before. The podcast is aimed at intermediate learners of French and covers a variety of grammar and vocabulary topics.
We're delighted to announce the availability of the Premium version of One Minute French. This premium version includes the following elements: the lesson guide lists all the words and phrases taught in the series; the enhanced podcasts allow listeners to view the words and phrases on iPod screens and computers using synchronised flashcards; the quick quiz podcast allows listeners to test their understanding of the material covered in the course; and the One Minute French: Take-Off Time show provides a full review of all the language in a handy audio file, ready to take on board your flight!
The Premium podcast can be purchased for £10.00 GBP from our membership page. As a special opening offer we're offering a 25% discount. Use coupon code OML2009 at checkout and get these materials for £7.50 GBP. This coupon code is valid until 23 January 2009. If you're already a Radio Lingua premium member, you can add One Minute French to your membership from your Control Panel.
Other One Minute Languages courses will be added to our membership section in the coming weeks.
We're delighted to announce our 2008 Winter Sale and a new range of materials in our store. By using the coupon code HOLIDAYS08 you'll get a 20% discount on all our products. We're also very pleased to announce that we have added our Platinum level materials for Coffee Break Spanish level 2. Coffee Break Platinum memberships give access to exercises workbooks, answer keys, word lists and abridged versions of each show without the introduction and conclusion. We've also introduced a "Coffee Break Spanish Complete" option, providing access to all eighty lessons for a reduced price of £84.00 GBP (that's just £67.20 with the sale discount!)
We've now moved Coffee Break French into our new system and introduced new Platinum materials for Coffee Break French. You can purchase 6 months' access to level 1 materials and download all the content for lessons 1-40 at your leisure. Prices range from £27.00 GBP for Bronze membership (pdf guides for all 40 lessons) to £57.00 GBP for Platinum membership including pdf guides, enhanced podcasts with synchronised iPod flashcards, extra listening materials and the same workbook, answer keys, word lists and abridged versions of the shows in the Coffee Break Spanish Platinum membership.
There has been so much to do with Coffee Break Spanish, Coffee Break French and Show Time Spanish developments, so we're running a bit late with the One Minute Languages courses. We'll be adding One Minute Languages memberships for all 12 languages to our store in the coming week.
If you'd like to give someone special the gift of a language this year, we can set up a gift membership. Just contact us at support [at] radiolingua.com and we'll invoice you for the cost and set the account up.
We've been running a bit behind schedule with Coffee Break French and until today we've not really been in a position to explain what's going on. Anna has actually been unwell and has been in hospital. She's now on the mend and is looking forward to getting back into recording the future episodes.
As we explained in the announcement which went into the feed today, we've decided to start back with episode 41 in January 2009. We really weren't sure about things until the past couple of days, and Anna wanted to record a message to everyone to explain things. She's not quite ready to start recording full episodes, but will be soon.
For premium subscribers, we're suggesting that you cancel your subscriptions - we ultimately want everyone to move over to our new system anyway and this will be fully ready in January. There will be further content in the premium feed between now and then to make up for the lack of new materials.
We'd like to apologise for the lack of information about Coffee Break French in recent weeks, but it's been a bit difficult to know exactly what to say about when we'd be able to start up again. Now that Anna is on the mend we're delighted to be able to give further details and would like to thank all our listeners for their patience and understanding.
We're delighted to announce the availability of the premium materials for units 1-4 of our course. Each unit is available individually in a "Basic" or "VIP" format. The Basic Season Pass provides pdf lesson guides for each programme. The VIP Season Pass includes the pdf lesson guides, enhanced podcasts and bonus listening materials for each episode.
If you're interested in purchasing more than one unit at a time you can take advantage of our bundle options, and access reduced prices. Until the end of October 2008 you can use the coupon code october08 to get a further 20% discount. Access our Season Passes at the Radio Lingua Store.
In celebration of the European Day of Languages we're delighted to announce six new podcasts in the One Minute languages series. You can now learn Catalan (web | iTunes), Danish (web | iTunes), French (web | iTunes), Japanese (web | iTunes), Mandarin (web | iTunes) and Romanian (web | iTunes) in a matter of minutes with our weekly episodes. And if you're aiming to be a real polyglot then you can tune in every day to a new language (with one day off to review everthing you've learned!) Catalan begins on Friday 26th September, Romanian on Saturday 27th, Mandarin on Monday 29th, Danish on Tuesday 30th, Japanese on Wednesday 1st October and French on Thursday 2nd.
The premium materials for unit 3 of Coffee Break French are now available in our store. The Basic Season Pass provides the lesson guides for lessons 21-30, and the VIP Pass offers the lesson guides, plus over three hours' worth of bonus listening materials. Bundles are also available providing access to units 1 and 2. Full details in the store.
The Season Pass for unit 2 is now available in our store. Purchase either the Basic Pass which includes the lesson guides (pdf) for lessons 11-20, or the VIP Pass which includes the lesson guides, the enhanced podcasts, and bonus listening material for each lesson. There's also a special deal on the units 1-2 bundle. Check out our store now, and look out for discount codes in our newsletter or by following us on Twitter.
We're just back from Paris where we spent three days filming new episodes of the video extra for Coffee Break French. We'll be publishing the video extras for lessons 6-9 in the coming weeks, along with the new episodes for lesson 11 onwards. We were also filming for our new French video podcast, Walk, Talk and Learn French. More about Walk, Talk and Learn soon, but in the meantime you may enjoy this video, complete with a seasonal song from Mark and Anna in the Parisian winter sunshine.
