For 5-7 Year Olds

  • Les aventures de Minou et Trottine et les saisons (French)
  • Las aventuras de Mifú y Tina (Spanish)

This is for pre-readers and early readers. It can be used for one or two years.

From experience we have found that children starting their language learning at 4 or 5 are more successful than children starting at 8 or 9. At this young age they are very receptive to new sounds, which become familiar very quickly. They are uninhibited and quickly become confident and at ease with the foreign language. For these reasons, this programme contains lots of stories, action chants, songs and games so that the children learn the language just like young French and Spanish children do and in the same way as they learnt their mother tongue. These are activities they enjoy & will repeat over & over again, absorbing language as the ‘play’.
