Word of the day update

Our Word of the Day project continues. Every second week we publish one word a day on Facebook and Twitter for our communities of learners of Spanish and French, and we ask these communities to put their language skills into practice by using these words in a sentence. You can post a message on our Coffee Break French and Coffee Break Spanish Facebook posts, or tweet back to @learnspanish or @learnfrench.

We publish our words on weeks 1, 3, 5 and so on, so what happens in weeks 2, 4, 6…? This is when we use the responses of the community as learning material for everyone. We choose our favourite responses and discuss the successes – and the mistakes – of the community in our Word of the Day Review show. You can find these in the Coffee Break Spanish and Coffee Break French podcast feeds.

We’ve just interested a new element to the project: you can now send us voice messages with your use of our Word of the Day. All you need is a webcam or microphone connected to your computer and you can send us your message. Click on the Voicemail tab on the right of the Radio Lingua site, or use the link on the Facebook pages (French / Spanish). We’d love to hear from our listeners and involve you in the show!

We hope you enjoy this new ‘interactive’ element of our content.

Update: 2 March 2013

We’re delighted that the clever people at Speakpipe have now added the voicemail functionality to iOS devices, so if you’re viewing our website or Facebook pages on your iPhone or iPad you can now download the Speakpipe app and send your message to us!
