Gabriella: Flying British Airways? Then buckle up and learn a new language on your flight over.
Gabriella: Welcome to an Innovative Language Learning Sunday News! I'm Gabriella and I'll be hosting today's Sunday news with the founder of Innovative Language... Peter!
Peter: Hi everyone! Peter here.
Gabriella: In this Sunday News lesson, you’ll hear all about our exciting new partnership plus get a sneak peek at our new language sites.
Peter: Listeners, We’ve got some exciting news that we want to share with you.
Gabriella: First, we have a big partnership to announce
Peter: Second, we have 3 new languages coming next month.
Gabriella: What are they? Keep listening until the end and we’ll reveal one of the languages.
Peter: So here’s the first big piece of news!
Gabriella: British Airways, one of the world’s leading airlines, has partnered with us...
Peter: ...and they’re bringing our language lessons on board! How awesome is that?
Gabriella: Listeners, this is all thanks to years of your amazing feedback
Peter: You helped us shape and improve our lessons to become effective, fast, and easy.
Gabriella: Starting June, 2013 you can tune into YOUR lessons on BA! That’s this month!
Peter: Yep! You’ll find our Beginner level lessons in over 20 languages....
Gabriella: ...In the in-flight entertainment on all British Airways long haul flights.
Peter: If you’re familiar with our audio lessons, then you know how they works.
Gabriella: No painful grammar. You learn just the conversation essentials and travel phrases
Peter: Everything from ordering food and checking into hotels to introducing yourself and making small talk with the locals.
Gabriella: And you learn it all on the flight just by putting on your headphones...
Peter: ...And listening to our effective audio lessons.
Gabriella: Peter, I love this idea. Language and travel go hand and hand after all.
Peter: Very true. Just by knowing the basics, you get to meet new people, and just experience a country in ways a tourist will never get to.
Gabriella: It’s amazing what a little language study on the flight can do for you.
Peter: By the way, have you tried learning on a plane before, Gabriella?
Gabriella: I tried with my own books but watching a movie turned out to be a lot easier.
Peter: laughs I won’t argue there. But since the lessons are in the in-flight entertainment, it is as easy as watching a movie.
Gabriella: So if you’re flying British Airways and haven’t taken any language learning material with you...
Peter: And if you want to start speaking the essentials before your flight lands...
Gabriella: ...Find our audio lessons in over 20 languages, from Arabic to Vietnamese, in the in-flight entertainment.
Peter: Now, speaking of languages, we’ve got 3 new languages...
Gabriella: ...And 2 new language sites coming up!
Peter: Listeners, I know you’re absolutely itching to know what the new ones are, right?
Gabriella: We’re going to reveal one language right now.
Peter: Ready? It has over 140 million speakers and is the lingua franca of East Africa
Gabriella: And it’s our first African language.
Peter: So, coming this July to the Innovative Language family is...
Gabriella: ...Swahili at SwahiliPod101.com!
Peter: Learn Swahili with the same proven and effective method that we use for the 27 current language sites.
Gabriella: As for the other languages... we’ll announce them in the June 30th Sunday News.
Peter: In the meantime, listeners, can you guess what they are?
Gabriella: Leave a comment with your guesses below this lesson and let us know!
