Little Pim ~ French

Little Pim is a great online learning tool to help younger children under the age of 6 learn another language.

Children from birth to 6 years old are sponges and are able to learn more between those ages. Scientific research shows that learning a foreign language comes naturally for children when they start at an early age. Little Pim is the brainchild of Julia Pimsleur Levine, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and mother. Julia was inspired by her own bilingual childhood; she learned French fluently by age six and is the daughter of Dr. Paul Pimsleur, who created the Pimsleur Method, the popular language learning program for adults. The Entertainment Immersion Method® integrates the latest scientific research regarding kids’ language learning and brain development. Pimsleur Levine developed the series with leading neuroscientist Dr. April Benasich, director of the Rutgers Infancy Studies Lab.
Each of our educational DVDs has a unique, child-friendly theme, such as eating, playtime and feelings. The method teaches 360 words and phrases, providing the essential building blocks for language learning. A child only needs 500 words to be considered “conversational” in a language. Babies, toddlers and kids respond enthusiastically to Little Pim’s format, which combines animated and live-action videos.
At Little Pim, we understand how children learn, so our videos are segmented into 5-minute episodes to accommodate a young child’s attention span. Simple sentences are broken down into easy-to-understand parts and reinforced through repetition by native speakers.
Little Pim has some great DEALS check out the WEBSITE for more info!!

I received the Little Pim French~ disc 1 Eating and Drinking CD for review.
I thought it would be great for my daughter since she is currently taking french in school and can use all the help she can

She has watched the DVD many times already and has already picked up some new words in french to share with her class when she gets back to to school. 
She says its fun to follow along and learn with Little Pim.

In this French DVD for toddlers, babies, and preschoolers see Little Pim and friends making and eating food while having a great time discovering new tastes. DVD 1 introduces more than 60 French words and phrases for meal times.
