Early Lingo French
December 7, 2012 By Mindy
Years ago in high school and college I studied French. I have always loved the sound and feel of the language. But my husband speaks Spanish and we have a tutor teaching us Japanese as part of our homeschooling. A couple weeks ago my twelve year old mentioned she would like to learn French! I was so excited, and when I had the chance to pick a language from Early Lingo I did not hesitate to choose French!
As a mother I absolutely LOVE products that were created by a mother for her own children as Early Lingo is!!! The concept is to be able to begin language immersion at a young age focusing on the years – zero to five!
It is no joke that it is language immersion. There is no English spoken at all, but for each word is repeated three times with three different pictures to ensure clarification. There are translation guides available from Early Lingo if needed.
The monkey (the main character) is adorable and very kid friendly!! Right away ALL of my children were mesmerized – my five month old, two-year old, and my six-, seven-, nine-, ten-, eleven- and twelve-year olds. Yes, I have eight children and they all sat happily watching the entire episode and wanted to watch more. They would listen and repeat while watching the real-life pictures of the object. The kids caught on instantly and felt very successful! Even my toddler who just turned two was repeating words.
The only down side I see is the episodes are short. I received Episode 6 – In the City and we were all so enthralled it was over before we knew it. There are a lot of sample clips to give you a wonderful idea of how the video and program work.
My children begged me to watch it again before lunch and impressed me with what they remembered.
