French for Kids: On Va Jouer (Let's Play) DVD Review #OnVaJouer

Bonjour tout le monde!

I am happy to post my review about this French For Kids: On Va Jouer (Let's Play) DVD because it is a fun product to use. This educational  DVD is in French so it will introduce your kids to a secondary language by use of interactive immersion programme.

Immersion is another method of learning a second language where the second language is the primary language used in teaching and is a good way to engage youngsters to pick up the secondary language at an early age. My daughter has learned 2 languages at the same time at the age of 6 - French and Arabic. All those languages were taught through the immersion programme in her school. I have seen the positive outcome of the method so I trust that this DVD will do the same to your young kids.

This DVD is loaded with fun and entertainment for the kids and parents alike. Kids are treated to colorful video display, lively song and dance numbers as hosted by Marie and cute animated characters like Fritzi the mouse and other colorful characters.

Aside from the colorful characters, the song and dance plus games are really captivating and can make you dance and sing along to the happy melodies - everything in French! This makes it easier for the young ones to digest the second language and gives them creative ways to instill the new words they learned.

Song lyrics and some basic English words translated to French

The French For Kids: On Va Joeur (Let's Play) DVD comes with small insert of basic words in English and the translation in French. It also has song lyrics so not only can the young kids sing along, even daddies, mommies and older siblings can join in the fun!

I find this a good learning experience for myself too. I can now catch up with my daughter when she speaks French, albeit, I have more practise sessions to catch up on but I will use this too to immerse myself in French. I do recommend this program to everyone who is keen to start their young kids to learn another language.

The French For Kids: On Va Joeur (Let's Play) DVD is created by the award-winning Whistlefritz, a company whose goal is to inspire young minds through learning a second language in an educational environment. Whistlefritz was founded in 2006 and its headquarter is in Glen Echo, Maryland on the outskirts of Washington D.C.
