On Friday 27th July we launched our summer sale, coinciding with the opening of the Olympic Games in London. We decided to join the excitement of the coming together of athletes from around the world for this international sporting event and celebrate further language-learning opportunities. We started offering “a word a day” with a sporting theme on Twitter and also linked our sale to sporting themes.
It has come to our attention that the use of any words associated with the Olympic Games for commercial purposes is not allowed. We have therefore removed all reference to the games from our site and apologise unreservedly for any misunderstanding or misleading information as a result of our original post.
We will continue to offer our free “word of the day” on Twitter throughout the games. This is in no way connected to our sale. For information about our summer sale, please click here.
We value hugely the respect of our community of language learners around the world and hope that this has in no way offended any of our existing or potential customers.
