With the Christmas break around the corner, this is the ideal time to sign up for the free Altissia language learning platform. In addition to testing your mettle in English and revising essential vocabulary, you can browse the news section – with or without an accompanying quiz. Going through comprehension exercises that feature genuine artefacts is a great way to engage with English in use – not merely as a static language.
Plus, for that long train journey to join the family over Christmas, or for Boxing Day, when, as they say, house guests, like fish after three days start to reek, you can find a corner by the fire and disappear into a world of English grammar, vocab and one-click multiple choice questions. If you have yet to try out Altissia, do not wait a moment longer! The sign-up instructions are available here in English and here in German.
