Destiny is addicted to GamesforLanguage...

Destiny is "addicted" to GamesforLanguage courses. A recent review by Destinyslanguagelearningcorner indicated that Destiny Lillian Funnington (the fictional character of the website) likes our game- and story-based language programs for German, French, Spanish and Italian.

Why don't you also give them a try?

Destiny also liked that the four courses are entirely FREE - no up-sell or time limits - and no Google ads either! You just need to register. (Registering is only necessary so you can pick up the course exactly where you left it, when you logged out!)

And now you can also hear the dialogues of our courses as Podcasts. They are a great way to pick up the melody of the language. And even if you don't understand every word when listening first, you will when you hear the dialogues again in the courses!

And - if you just want to test your knowledge - you can now play the "Quick Games" without even registering! And you can play and learn with them on most mobile devices and tablets with Internet access - no apps needed!

We are Happy in Fribourg, Switzerland...

During our recent stay in Fribourg, Switzerland we experienced the city's joy about “We are Happy in Fribourg” and even have a cameo appearance in the video. Like many US towns and cities, Pharrell Williams' song “Happy” inspired Swiss film makers as well. You can find the link to the Newspaper article (How good is your French?) and the YouTube video at the end of our recent blog Bilingual in Fribourg, Switzerland.

Price=$0 for GamesforLanguage courses

In January 2014 we started our Learn & Play/Skip & Pay Program. While quite a number of users took us up on our offer of free learning with regular practice, we have decided to make our language courses FREE for all users without any limitations and restrictions.
