Spreading bon mots across Les Pay Bas, TV5MONDE is to launch its 7 Jours sur La Planète app on VodafoneZiggo, the number one cable operator in the Netherlands.

The app, first launched by Vodafone Spain in 2016, is designed to help viewers learn the French language. With it, viewers are able to watch catch-up programmes with a transcript in French running across the bottom of the screen and a list of vocabulary words.

They will also have the opportunity to play five different games based on these programmes. The five games allow viewers to extend their linguistic knowledge while testing their understanding of the programme previously watched. They can select a level of difficulty and follow their progress through recorded results. The various exercises focus on the different aspects of learning a language, such as listening, reading, understanding and so forth.

The service, updated on a weekly basis, is available in Dutch, French, English, German, and Spanish, accessible through the VodafoneZiggo TV app store, which is available for every Ziggo customer with a Horizon set-top box.

“Most on-demand content is merely time-shifted content. With this proposition of edutainment – unique in the world – we are delivering real added value to the viewers,” remarked Diane Couderc, TV5MONDE’s regional director for Europe. “We are delighted to team up with VodafoneZiggo on this. Further roll-outs for 7 Jours are planned across Europe in the forthcoming months.”
