EARLY LINGO LAUNCHES CHILDREN’S FOREIGN LANGUAGE DVD SERIES
- Gives children crucial early stage exposure to foreign languages
- Stimulates neural pathway development in infants and toddlers
- Fun, easy to understand DVD series
LOS ANGELES, CA, January 11, 2011 – Early Lingo, Inc., the children’s foreign language education company, today announced that it has launched a new series of educational DVDs, which help young children to learn foreign languages in a simple, intuitive and proven way.
The Early Lingo DVD Series is the first of its kind. It offers 12 animated and live-action videos to teach a child the basic foundation of a foreign language. Meticulously researched and developed by Georgetown University School of Languages and Linguistics graduate, Caryn Antonini, the series utilizes action/word specific instruction and is organized into 12 interactive programs. The series offers a playful approach to learning with stimulating visual content of everyday activities. Fully immersive, each DVD follows the adventures of animated characters, Jojo and Lulu.
The first 3 DVDs of the Series:
- “Colors and Shapes at the Park”
- “Numbers and Counting at the Farm”
- “Opposites at the Beach”
are now available through Amazon, and are initially offered in English (ESL), French and Spanish. The rest of the Series will be available in Spring 2011, and additional languages will follow.
Caryn Antonini, Founder and CEO, Early Lingo, comments, “Educated parents with young children now recognize the importance of exposure to foreign languages at an early stage and the later life benefits that this will bring if the child is given the right introduction. With the Early Lingo DVD series, we are giving parents the opportunity to provide the life-long benefit of early stage neural pathway development through an easy to understand and playful way of learning foreign languages. As a new mother and linguist, I wanted to give my child the advantages of learning a foreign language as an infant and all the subsequent benefits it would bring my child later in life. I’m excited about the prospects of offering other parents an opportunity for their children to learn foreign languages at an early age. If we are to compete successfully as a world power in the global marketplace, our children must be bilingual. Starting children young not only makes language learning easier, but studies show that these children perform better in other academic areas.”
