Posted 1 October 2018 · Add Comment

From today, free inflight language lessons will not just be spoken in English – but also in Arabic, Mandarin, German and Spanish, so passengers across Middle East, China & Europe can learn a new language in their own mother tongue

Business travellers and holidaymakers across many new regions to benefit from Phase 2 of pioneering ‘Learn As You Fly’ project.

Award-winning British language-learning company uTalk is spreading its wings internationally after reaching a new deal with top airline Emirates.

Language lessons will now be available free on board Emirates flights – not just spoken in English, but also in Arabic, Mandarin, German and Spanish. It will mean passengers across the Middle East, China & Europe can learn new languages in their own mother tongue.

Arabic is used by around 422 million speakers across the Arab world, in the Middle East and North Africa and is the official language of 22 countries. Mandarin is the official language of China (population 1.37 billion), and is also spoken in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia (combined population 365 million).

So this latest collaboration between uTalk and Emirates will potentially benefit huge numbers of air travellers globally and benefit business travellers and holidaymakers across many new regions.

Announcing the deal today, uTalk Sales Director Brett Savidge said: “We are delighted to roll out the next phase of the uTalk language experience with Emirates. It was always our goal to make uTalk available to people travelling across the globe and our partnership with Emirates allows us to do this.
