Free Online French and German Holiday Lessons Posted by on Dec 7, 2015 in Language Learning, Language News, Product Recommendations

Joyeux Noël and Frohe Weihnachten! It’s the most wonderful time of the year—time for holiday lessons!

Did you know that in France and Germany, Santa doesn’t travel alone on Christmas Eve? And we’re not just talking about his reindeer friends. In France, Father Christmas hands out presents while his frightening counterpart, père Fouettard, gives out lashings. Meanwhile in Germany, Saint Nicholas stuffs the shoes of well-behaved children, while naughty children fear the arrival of the beast-like Krampus and his whip.

This is the kind of stuff that brings other cultures and languages to life. It’s the stuff both students and teachers wish they could find in their textbooks. And we’re bringing it to you in our free online French holiday lesson and German holiday lesson powered by Transparent Language Online!

In these interactive lessons, students will master new holiday vocabulary through a suite of learning activities that target listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

  1. Robert F. Betz:

    I like Spanish and German ‘Word of the day ” most of all. but unfortunately cannot receive the “Word of the day” prior to 14 AUGUST 2014. On your calendar a sign says “Closed” on previous days. Is it possible to get words in words in Spanish and German on your calendar prior to 14 August 2014?

  2. Marta:


    I have done the activities in French holiday lesson and I really appreciate them because they are really complex, there are so many different types of exercises. It’s great!

    Just one comment:
    Would you please re-read the text because of some grammar and spelling mistakes:
    ‘nous échangent’
    ‘les familles francaise’
    ‘y etre aller’

    Merci et bon travail 🙂

    • Transparent Language:

      @Marta Thanks, Marta! We’ll take a look.

  3. Robert F. Betz:

    Transparent Word of the day is excellent for both German and Spanish. I wish I could get the archives from the time earlier than January 2015. PLEASE E-mail me if this is possible. Thank you
