This is an excellent way to get little ones used to the sound of frenchand become aware that there are other languages. It is something theywill watch over and over again and has a couple of charming french songsthat they soon pick up. The main character is Isobel who can speakenglish and her family who speak only french so she can translate andrepeat french words. We go through her day - being introduced to herfamily, naming objects in the house, getting dressed and learning namesfor clothes, we join them for meals, trips to the shops and the park thenbath time when we learn names for parts of the body including 'derrière'which causes much giggling. There are a lot of funny moments so theentertainment value is high. The main characer being young means that theobjects she names are relevant to toddlers lives (toys, teddy, doll,slide, swing etc.) Some have said they find the fact that an adult womendoes the voice for the animated girl is weird but I didn't even noticeuntil this was put to me. Children just accept her voice too. I will buythe spanish one soon as I have been so impressed with this one.

Firstly, my 4 year old does request to watch this DVD, and I notice she has picked up some of the words. She doesn't watch it all the way through now (she did the first few times), so she's very good at the French introduced in the first half! So it can't be 'too bad' - BUT:

I thought this DVD was pretty basic. Essentially it is just a long list of vocabulary accompanied by poor animation and voiceovers. I was really surprised at the lack of quality - and have only kept it as the price was so good (would never pay the full price for it!).

There's no fluency at all, just words - but I suppose the viewer hears a real French accent, which young children pick up well.

I think very small children and upwards are capable of absorbing so much - and the DVD could have been so much more. I bought Where's Boo! on DVD a while ago, and although it's a programme shown on English tv, there was a French option on the DVD - and it's great. Usborne ought to have a look at that, then go back and sort out poor Isabel!!

I bought this DVD for a birthday present for a 3 year old - her whole family are raving about it - it goes on everyday and they know the songs now. They are bringing it to France with them when they come to visit as it is a must see! If their reaction is anything to go buy - I might have to buy if for my family as we are learning French too! As my little friend says "FAB"

we bought this for our daughters 3rd birthday, as we spend 3 months a yr in france and wanted our kids to speak a more natural french than we do. In the short time since, we all seem to know it off by heart, it's certainly helping my french, and i can say 'slide' in french quite well now, quite handy next time we are on holidays in the park. can they do another version to help me talk to other parents about sleep routines and feeding?...our daughter has been glued to this, and althou she had already picked up please/ thanks etc, is now surprising us by using new words in her conversation, ie pointing at a toy and saying 'that's rouge mummy'.surprisingly i'm not tired of hearing it yet and she's also learnt a lot of 'frere jacque' from the intro (as well as how to work the dvd so she now puts it on her self...)basic french but it entertains our 3yr old and is a fun way to learn.

This DVD is exactly what its title says. It is a fun basic introduction to French words. I bought it for my 4 and half year old but my one a half enjoys it more. It is very basic so don't expect the children to start speaking any French soon. The animation is very basic but enjoyable just the same. It could do with a sequel that introduces phrases as well.

I wanted my 2 year old and 4 year old to start learning a lanuage. They'll be starting a french class next year but I thought I'll give them a jump start with an french dvd to also entertain them.

They love it so much, that my 4 year old gets up asking for it (over Thomas, & Juggington!!). I'm thrilled as they are learning something while being entertained.

The DVD animation is very basic but its about a little girl that go through her day teaching the viewer what everything meanings in French. She has breakfast with her family. gets dressed goes to the shop with her mother, park, etc.

It's brilliant!!

I speak French and many other languages and was hoping to pass this on to my little girl. She loves Peppa Pig and anything with houses and families like Sylvanian Families, so this is perfect for her. It has a family in it and they have a funny life - she loves slapstick and accidents and there are plenty of them- it has alot of laughs. She didn't like Muzzy because it was ALL in French, whereas because this has a bit of both she seems to like it better. All in all she loves this DVD and watches it over and over again. I am sure she will grow to love French too!

My 23 month old daughter has been watching "Isabelle" for several months and it is a firm favourite. She watches it from end to end. She points things out to me in English but is now beginning to reply "bonjour" to the characters and I am happy that the information is going in. Just wish I'd bought the DVD not the video as it is on so much and I have a younger daughter who is not interested in TV yet. We also have the book which we use as well and she is getting the idea that there are different words for the same item in French.
