We have the 3-DVD Spanish Gift Set here at Rock Father HQ, and we're just getting rolling in teaching the 3-year-old her first second language. These gift sets are available in ten languages, and a variety of configurations to make learning fun and affordable.
The LITTLE PIM Method:
"The Entertainment Immersion Method® integrates the latest scientific research regarding kids’ language learning and brain development. Pimsleur Levine developed the series with leading neuroscientist Dr. April Benasich, director of the Rutgers Infancy Studies Lab.
Each of our educational DVDs has a unique, child-friendly theme, such as eating, playtime and feelings. The method teaches 360 words and phrases, providing the essential building blocks for language learning. A child only needs 500 words to be considered “conversational” in a language. Babies, toddlers and kids respond enthusiastically to Little Pim’s format, which combines animated and live-action videos.
At Little Pim, we understand how children learn, so our videos are segmented into 5-minute episodes to accommodate a young child’s attention span. Simple sentences are broken down into easy-to-understand parts and reinforced through repetition by native speakers."
We'll be posting a full review of our experience with Little Pim here on The Rock Father in the near future, but in the meantime, check out all the different sets that are available at http://www.littlepim.com
