I think I am actually jealous of the bilingual kids that go to our elementary school. Learning a second language has actually always been a dream of mine but I also think that it can only help my children grow and achieve more in life. I am kicking myself that I did not commit earlier to teaching my children Spanish. Sure, we go through the colors, numbers and they know some other random spanish words because of Dora the Explorer but I mean really engage them and teach them (and myself) the language.
“Research proves that young children who learn a language before the age of five tend to have superior reading, writing, analytical and social skills, as well as more extensive vocabularies than their monolingual peers.”-Dr. James Mason
We have traveled with our kids quite a bit and I wish we had Little Pim when we took them to Spain for one month and then to Costa Rica for a month. The Little Pim language DVD’s and CD’s would have been excellent tools while preparing for our trips and even as entertainment on the plane! We also live in Los Angeles and so Spanish is a language that surrounds us daily. We would not only be able to use this skill while we travel but it could enhance our communication right here at home too. You can learn up to 60 words in each foreign language DVD and we have just started the Spanish series at our home and the kids are having so much fun!
Little Pim’s unique Entertainment Immersion Method leads with distinctive fun and high quality, and provides total immersion in the language. The method uses proven repetition techniques that help children retain the new vocabulary. Little Pim is the most comprehensive series available today for introducing a foreign language to young children between the ages of zero and five. They offer language sets in French, German, Chinese, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Russian and even Arabic!
You can even buy the digital download for foreign language on the Go! They have also have 2 spanish iphone Apps, Word Bag and Talking Coloring Book as well as their newest Spanish ipad App. The Little Pim foreign language series has won 22 awards, including iParenting, Mom’s Best, Creative Child and Mr. Dad. I can’t think of a better gift to give new parents! What a creative and amazing baby shower gift that will make a difference in a child’s life and start them on the path to success.
