Lingorilla is back! Lingorilla.com (www.lingorilla.com), the multi award-winning video platform for language learning, continues on its successful path with the relaunch of its products: language learning videos.

Online PR News – 22-May-2012 – Berlin, May, 22nd 2012 – Lingorilla is back! Lingorilla.com (www.lingorilla.com), the multi award-winning video platform for language learning, continues on its successful path with the relaunch of its products: language learning videos of everyday situations with professional actors and native speakers provide anyone with an internet connection the opportunity to learn foreign languages online in a fun, effective and flexible way. Millions of language learners worldwide already rely on the online language learning method. Whether with films, music or games: multimedia-based edutainment has become a trend. A further increase in the number of users is now expected as a result of the relaunch of the website.

At the same time, the operator of the language learning portal, LinguaTV GmbH, highlights the new approach of the Lingorilla version: “First and foremost, an extended range of video-based languages courses accompany the relaunch: in addition to crime-solving videos in English, Spanish, French and Italian, we have also expanded the English language products, with five English courses for both general English and business English as well as the special 'English Grammar' course”, explains Philip Gienandt, Managing Director of LinguaTV. Furthermore, two Spanish courses and an advanced German language course are new to the language learning platform.
The structure and the individual lessons of each course have been optimised according to the users' requirements. “New and old Lingorilla users will immediately benefit from a new learning management system which provides incentives and feedback and details the individual learning progress”, explains Gienandt. The training videos are also supplemented by additional learning aids, such as subtitles which can be turned on or off, transcripts, an online dictionary, and a download area with additional learning materials, such as a glossary.

Even after the functional and visual improvements to the platform, Lingorilla.com remains true to its basic concept: to provide the short stories as an entertaining way to learn languages. The educational videos are not just entertaining but also demonstrate language skills for practical use at the same time. The reason: native speakers act out realistic dialogues in the videos with important vocabulary and phrases – without any unusual accents. Lingorilla users therefore learn the language as if they were actually in the country themselves. The combination of professionally produced films with special learning aids and interactive educational games is particularly valuable and activates the users' various senses and thereby positively supports the learning progress. New, flexible Premium Accounts provide Lingorilla users with the opportunity to select new course content each month.

To celebrate the relaunch, Lingorilla is offering its loyal users a little treat as a way of saying thank you for their support: you can save money if you register by 30th June this year with the discount code “lingorillarelaunch2012”: three months access to three Lingorilla courses of your choice from the entire course catalogue will cost just 9,97 Euros (approx. 12,7 USD) instead of 59,97 Euros.
