Parlez-vous Francais? Mine is getting very rusty yet I enjoy sharing what I do remember with my kids. They love throwing in a few French words here and there. So far, we have not gone much beyond merci beaucoup, voila, numbers, and colors but we are working on it. I found another fun way to teach them some basic French: with a children's CD from Whistlefritz that I received for review.
The Cha, Cha, Cha, French Learning Songs CD includes fifteen catchy songs that introduce simple French, set to Latin and Caribbean rhythms. Whistlefritz are award-winning producers of language immersion CDs and DVDs for children. The songs are performed by Lynn Véronneau and the music is arranged and recorded by bandleader and composer Didier Prossaird. The melodies are pleasantly simple and most words are repeated multiple times to make learning even easier. Each song teaches a set of words, such as numbers, days of the week, months, seasons, and more. My kids love dancing and singing along, and I find myself humming the songs in the car. I love that the CD includes a handy booklet with the text of all songs along with their English translation.
Cha, Cha, Cha, French Learning Songs is the winner of the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) GOLD Award, the Mom's Choice GOLD Award, and the National Parenting Center's 2012 Seal of Approval. It is recommended by the Parents’ Choice Foundation and named one of the Best 10 Audio-Visual programs of 2012 by Dr. Toy.
Whistlefritz just released their first French DVD, Dedans et Dehors. To celebrate the release, the company is offering a 25% off discount on all French programs - CD or DVD. The coupon code is DedansVIP with expiration date 12/5/2013.
In addition to French, Whistlefritz offers educational language immersion CDs and DVDs in Spanish. Check out their selection on Whistlefritz.com and on Amazon.
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.
