French for Kids: Dedans et Dehors
Whistlefritz is the producer of multi-award-winning DVDs, CDs, and lesson plans for children that immerse them in a new language. The recommended ages for the DVDs are children ages 2-7. My little guy had the chance to try this thirty minute DVD of French for Kids. It is so cute! There are some adorable French songs, live-action, and animation. The way it teaches is to take children through a home so they learn the words for different rooms like the bedroom, living room, kitchen, and more. Kids can also learn some basic greeting in French.
One cool thing about this DVD that I like as a teacher is the translation guide. I don’t know French but with the guide I can help my little guy along. Here he is enjoying the DVD.
He insisted that I take this picture, too. I also got a picture of him sitting and watching the DVD, but I thought this one was more fun ;). He does like to sing along with the music and say some of the words in French. I can totally see children (and adults!) learning some basic French with this DVD. I know I enjoyed trying to say the French words with the same accent as the video. I’m sure you would’ve gotten some laughs hearing my southern accent trying to pronounce words with a French accent.
I love that this DVD can offer my little guy a chance to learn another language. Research shows that learning a second language at an early age can have a positive influence on a child’s intellectual growth. Children can be exposed to a second language when they are very young so they can learn it as naturally as their first language and with the fluency a native person might have. Immersion is the most efficient way for children to learn a language. They can learn a new language the same way as they learn their first language: repetition.
I would recommend this product to anyone who wants their child to learn a second language. You can get this DVD FRENCH FOR KIDS: Dedans et Dehors (Inside and Out) on Amazon for just under $20.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
