A few posts back I interviewed the founder of the terrific Earworms musical brain training CDs (don’t forget you can buy these with 25% ‘bitesized’ discount voucher). Another great product range for anyone learning a language, is the Cideb ‘Black Cat’ range.
Cideb are well known in the language industry as publishers of beautifully designed, innovative and dynamic teaching materials. I own at least 5 of their book-and-CD range for learning French (“Lire et s’entrainer”) and learning Italian (“Imparare leggendo”) and I can say they’re extremely useful to own, and ideal if you want quality language learning materials for self-study and exposure.
I was thrilled to see them exhibiting at The Language Show, Earl’s Court, and took the opportunity to interview their international sales & marketing director, Daniele Vecchiotti.
Cideb have a very wide range of products and they’re nicely graded by level and colour coded to help you pick the level that’s right for you. I can recommend these in particular:
French, Level A1 (beginner)
French, Level A2 (lower intermediate)
French, Level B1 (upper intermediate)
Italian, Level A1 (beginner)
That’s it for the Language Show Interview series. I’ll do a series round up post next to summarise all the great stuff I came across whilst there.
