Random House’s Living Language is putting its own spin on the food truck craze.
To celebrate its new Platinum courses, the Living Language food truck will feature French, German, Italian, and Latin American foods, with a handy pronunciation guide on the menu. The food is free, but the catch is that you have to use the guide to pronounce each menu item correctly. Or, as Living Language puts it, “‘say it right to get a bite!'” See this page for more information and the dates/times and locations of the food truck next week.
I’d never heard of Living Language before learning of the food truck, but I think I might take some time to explore more of their programs. I particularly like the concept of their In-Flight courses. The 60-minute courses are a sort of primer, aimed at both tourists and business travelers, meant for listening to while you’re on the plane.
