Live the Language




These fantastic video clips for the EF Live the Language campaign have been making the blog rounds, I absolutely adore them! The typography, cinematography, message is perfection! Have you seen them yet? It makes me want to get away to Paris right away! See more clips for other countries here. More advertisers should take their lead don't you think?

That was awesome. I took french in high school and it wasn't nearly that cool.

I HAVE seen these (I had to watch all of them!) and love them! They make me travel-sick, ha! I've been meaning to post them on my blog, too... more people need to see these lovely videos!

Angela said...

Oooo, hadn't seen these. Thanks for sharing! And is it just me, or does the girl in the video look kinda like Amanda Knox? Creepy, no?

All the videos are gorgeous! Though I do have one comment and I wonder what other people think: all the characters engage in some sort of romantic outing with a local in all the videos except for China. Maybe it is because I am Chinese American and sensitive to this stuff, but did anyone else notice that? I did watch it without sound, so maybe that makes a difference?

Oh wow that video was so fresh and inspiring. I actually went to France and Spain with EF on a student art tour. Changed my life. Had so much fun, and decided to pick up french so i can go back later!

The Paris video made my day yesterday... And I may or may not have watched it about 25 times since!

These are fantastic! It reminds me of my days in foreign countries trying to learn the language. I just sent the link to my college sons, one went through 6 months in China and these videos are just the perfect teaser.

Thanks for sharing this it is a great video, reminded me of when I last went to Paris. Loved it. Why not pop over and visit some time? http://weridben.blogspot.com

I LOVED THEM ALL! They make each culture experience look like a collector's item. I wish someone could follow me around and capture my experience every time I went abroad. I would laugh at type traveling genius mistakes I made a million times over. Rewind me back to Madrid!!

See them all @

Hello! My name is Yagmur and I’m part of the EF video team. I was happy to see our “Live the Language” films on your blog. This weekend we posted 3 more films in the same series, from Sydney, Vancouver and Los Angeles, which we produced together with the same creative team. This time we added some color in the graphics and played around more with sound effects. Check them out at http://www.ef.com/livethelanguage - or if you prefer Vimeo: http://www.vimeo.com/groups/livethelanguage/videos
