Leading travel companies, Thomson and First Choice have teamed up with Linguaphone1, a world-leading provider of language courses, to offer their customers an exclusive 30% discount on Linguaphone’s range of self-study courses.

Whether customers want to learn how to order a ‘cerveza’ on their holidays in Spain or some ‘meze’ whilst in Greece, Linguaphone has a course for everyone. With a wide range of courses on CD and MP4 formats available, customers will be able to choose where and when they study - at the gym, on the way to work or relaxing at home.

Senior Innovation Manager for Thomson and First Choice, Andrea Josse, is delighted with the partnership and explains: “This partnership highlights our commitment to heighten our customers' holiday experiences. Even being able to speak just a few words of a foreign language can make a huge difference and we hope that our customers take advantage of this. ”

Derek Price, Chief Operations Officer for the Linguaphone Group, commented: "With a little help from Linguaphone, asking for directions, shopping and eating out abroad will become second nature for all Thomson and First Choice customers. We are very pleased to be working with TUI Travel plc, and look forward to a strong partnership with them in the months and years to come."
