Daily English - Award-Winning Service Updated And Improved
15th August 2005
The Linguaphone Group announces the signing of the rights to two BBC news and current affairs programmes for Daily English, its award-winning premium online service for English language learners.
As part of the Group's commitment to keeping at the forefront of language learning and technology, from 1st September 2005, there will be one television video article and one radio programme per month that will replace the current Daily English video output.
The television video article will be taken from BBC News 24 – a world news channel which broadcasts 24 hours a day. The radio programme will be BBC Radio's 'From Our Own Correspondent' featuring local stories and reports from BBC journalists around the globe. Both are prestigious, award-winning programmes.
Daily English provides an unrivalled selection of global quality media in one unique system. Delivered via the Internet, it expands the learner’s vocabulary and tests their knowledge via up-to-the-minute articles from newspapers, radio and TV programmes.
