Don’t Learn It, Live it! Live the Language Program

Apr 27, 2011 by     2 Comments    Posted under: Life Experiences, Media Gallery, Tips, Travel Information

We came across some amazing promotional videos for Education First, Live the Language. A company that allows you to learn a language in the city where it is natively spoken. With traveling abroad, learning the language of your destination is important. Not only is it easier to communicate with the locals if you need directions around the city, it is also respected, and the people will be delighted that you tried. Languages are easier to learn and retain in a city that forces you to use the language. I learned more Spanish in Barcelona in the 3 months I was there than the 2 years I tried in high school.

These videos are a fun way to learn a couple of words. Check out the cityscapes and culture while learning! I can only wish there were more of these videos!

Have you stayed in a foreign country to learn a new language? How was the experience? What program did you go through? Or did you do it alone? Any tips for anyone else who might be interested? Please share!

  • Hello!

    My name is Yagmur and I’m part of the EF video team. I was happy to see our “Live the Language” films on your blog. This weekend we posted 3 more films in the same series, from Sydney, Vancouver and Los Angeles, which we produced together with the same creative team. This time we added some color in the graphics and played around more with sound effects.

    Check them out at – or if you prefer Vimeo:

    Like YOU said: Don’t learn it, Live it! :)

    • Your production team is amazing! The filming, the angles, the typography, the music, the editing…thanks for sharing! Makes me wanna go to Australia even more! So many adventures there.
