Make learning French fun for kids through music

All little kids adore music, so why not tap into this natural affinity to get young kids hooked on foreign language learning? That's precisely what the unique Let's Sing and Learn in French does.

With a songbook of twenty original melodies, Let's Sing and Learn in French (CD edition) teaches basic French vocabulary and expressions in a fresh, exciting way. Instead of trying to memorize greetings, numbers, colors, and days and months, your child will enjoy the fun of putting them to music. While singing "Le printemps (The spring)," not only will your child be actively engaged, but the lessons learned will stay with her much longer as she associates the new words with easy-to-remember rhythms and beats.

Pop in the twenty-five-minute CD and listen as your child sings along in French with other kids on the recording, belting out these delightful tunes and learning about everyday subjects at the same time. Features include:

  • Songbook of twenty original tunes will have your child, aged three to six, singing in French in no time
  • English translation of lyrics to build your child's French vocabulary
  • Simple chords and musical notation allow you accompany your child on guitar or piano
  • Kid singers on the CD model proper French pronunciation and intonation
  • CD format allows for easy song location and quick replay

Whether you're an educator, parent, babysitter, or caregiver, you'll be amazed at how quickly kids, even the shiest in the bunch, catch on to French when music is the medium!
