Foreign Languages For Kids

Research shows that babies, toddlers and preschoolers have the ability to learn languages with ease and at Educational Esteem we have plenty of engaging resources to start your little one on their way to being multilingual.

A great place to start is with music. We have an extensive range of CDs from Putumayo Kids including French, Latin, Brazilian, European and World Playground that introduce your children to foreign language in a gentle and engaging way. These are great CDs for the car (adults will enjoy the songs too!).  ABC Kids also has some titles: Kids Songs from Around the World and Songs from Around the World that are a great tool for introducing little ones to the concept of different cultures, which is an important part of their emotional and social development.

If you are ready to introduce your child to learning a foreign language then the Little Pim DVD series are a great place to start. The series features unique “entertainment immersion” whereby animation and real kids combine to teach simple words and phrases for everyday activities. The series stars the super cute animated panda Little Pim who will teach your little one another language and there are plenty to choose from – Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, German, Hebrew and Russian.

Beth Manners has great resources for learning French and Spanish in a fun and easy way ideal for two to six year olds. Your kids will be saying “Hola” and “Bonjour” before you know it! Beth Manners’ method has a system of short segments to hold the interest of the young child and provides a fun and enriching learning experience for parents and kids.

Teach Me is a new addition to our range and all about learning language through songs and stories. The Teach Me learning tools bring language alive through illustrations as you listen, learn and sing along with classic songs for children. Children can easily follow the songs and story through the dual language format. Available in Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Hebrew, Italian, English, Russian, Korean and Japanese.

ABC Melody Sing and Learn is a fun and engaging range of books and CDs that teach your kids language through listening to songs, looking at the pictures, dancing and singing.
