Fritzi’s in the house! But où est Fritzi? Finding the mischievous mouse Fritzi is just part of the fun in this lively language learning program from Whistlefritz, the award-winning producers of the Spanish for Kids series of DVDs and CDs. This French immersion DVD welcomes you to Fritzi’s house, where up or down, inside or out, there is lots to learn and plenty to do. Explore every area of Fritzi’s house, from la chambre (the bedroom) and la salle de bain (the bathroom) to le salon (the living room) and la cuisine (the kitchen). An engaging interactive format teaches children basic greetings, positional words, food, daily activities, numbers, and more. But that’s not all!Nous allons chanter et danser! (We’re going to sing and dance!) This DVD will have children on their feet dancing along to upbeat rhythms. Dedans et Dehors is an engaging blend of colorful backgrounds, charming animation and live-action that kids will want to revisit again and again. This DVD includes an easy-to-use translation guide for parents and teachers, who are first time learners of French, as well as French subtitles. Designed for children ages 2-7, Dedans et Dehors is fun for all ages!
I was so excited to be given the opportunity to review this DVD. Previously we had received the Spanish version of this language immersion program and Christian loved it. He enjoyed dancing and trying to sing along with the music. I enjoyed that he was being exposed to another language in a fun, immersive way. This DVD proved to be equally as good.
-This 30 minute program is very interactive, with games, skits, and songs sprinkled throughout. One thing that I did appreciate was that the script for this one was the same as the script from the Spanish DVD. That way, Christian will be able to make connections eventually between the different languages that are used to expressed the same things.
I also enjoyed the fact that the program is 100% immersive. There is no English spoken at all throughout the entire 30 minutes. Experts recommend complete immersion as being the best way to learn a second language. I also liked the fact thatthey have French subtitles so i can see what they are saying and try to talk along with it. They do, however, provide a pamphlet inside the DVD that provides a translation so that you can practice the vocabulary in your day to day life. That is another thing that I appreciated — the vocabulary that they use are things that you would use on a regular basis.
Overall, Christian and I both thoroughly enjoy not only this DVD, but the other programs in the series that we have had the pleasure of trying — including the French cd. I highly recommend them.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
