My Little One is in French Immersion and I am always looking for great learning aids for home. I have been extremely happy with the French Whistlefritz products that we have. If you follow me regularly, then you already know how much I loved the Whistlefritz French CD; Cha Cha Cha.
The newest French learning aid from Whistlefritz is a DVD; Dedans et Dehors.
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 encourages viewers to learn and retain basic greetings and positional words as well as words for 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!
Here is why Dedans et Dehors is a hit in our house and an awesome aid for learning french:
*Animated and live action content
*Music content that is fun and upbeat
*Cute animated characters
*Words displayed on screen
*Uses every day conversation and vocabulary
*Great length at approximately 35 minutes
*Great resource for at home and in the classroom
Dedans et Dehors continues to appeal to my 6 year old who is in French Immersion at school. She continually asks to watch Dedans et Dehors and often watches it repeatedly. Even after having the DVD for months, my Little One stills asks to watch it.
What I love about the DVD is that it uses the music from the CD; Cha, Cha, Cha. Since we have already had the CD and listen to it often, the music was familiar to my Little One when she started watching the DVD. My Little One was very happy that she was able to sing along with the songs on the DVD since they were already familiar to her.
The DVD is a great addition to the CD and together, they really make a winning combination for enhancing your French language learning.
Dedans et Dehors has won numerous awards and it certainly received the MomMomOnTheGo seal of approval. I highly recommend the Whistlefritz line of products and am looking forward to more CD’s and DVD’s being released.
Whether you are a teacher looking for a resource for in your classroom, or a parent wanting learning tools for at home, the Whistlefritz line of French learning products are a great tool.
