For the first time, the tried and tested Lextra video language courses created by the German editorial Cornelsen are exclusively available on the language learning platform linguatv.com for language learners all over the world. The courses range from classical Business English topics to entertaining detective stories for the languages Spanish, French, Italian and English.
Sandra Gasber, Managing Director at LinguaTV, is delighted by the latest additions: “We were pleased by Cornelsen’s contents from the very first. They perfectly complete our already established language courses.” “Cornelsen is one of Germany’s leading editorials for educational media. We have realized the trend to use videos for language teaching at an early stage,” adds Helga Holtkamp, Editor-in-Chief for Modern Foreign Languages at Cornelsen. “I am therefore particularly happy that we are now able to present our video language courses online at LinguaTV to an international audience.”
LinguaTV customers have access to a broad range of videos and interactive exercises on the most important Business English subjects such as Communications, Meetings, Presentations, Negotiations, and Socializing & Small Talk. Thanks to the entertaining video training, learners can make use of authentic conversation situations and practical exercises, as well as additional learning material to download, wherever and whenever they want. Or they pursue a mysterious word robbery with the detectives Anita Andress and Derek Dexter in twelve episodes. While hunting criminals like “El Gato Fantasma” in Madrid, “Le chat Masqué” in Paris, “Il Gatto Fantasma” in Rome and “Phantom Cat” in London, users learn the basics of the foreign language as they go along.
Apart from the plot’s suspense, it is the possibility to collect points of activity and to pursue one’s personal learning progress that is encouraging for the regular online training with the LinguaTV platform (LinguaTV.com). Furthermore, social network community functions—such as learning groups—complete the products. Additional functions such as subtitles, an online dictionary, and considerable accompanying material with transcripts and exercises facilitate the individual learning of languages with a measurement of results.
