Product Description


Features many rhymes, lullabies, words, phrases, and traditional music of six foreign languages: Spanish, French, German, Russian, Hebrew and Japanese. Based on the latest infant research -- The latest child development research shows that infants' brains develop rapidly during the first months of life. Simply by listening, neural pathways are activated and sound recognition skills are increased, making it easier for your child to acquire languages later in life. Gentle and engaging -- The native speaker in each 15-minute language segment talks to your baby in motherly tones, introducing your little one to the sounds and rhythms of each language, accompanied by gentle folk melodies and lullabies unique to each culture. And to make it fun and exciting for you too, an easy-to-understand 16-page translation and phonetic pronunciation guide is included. Easy to use -- Just play the tapes for your baby at bedtime, playtime or in the car. The more often your baby listens, the greater the benefits!

Over rated boring 16 Jan. 2008
By txaggie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
These tapes were a waste of my money. They are boring to listen to, for both adults and kids. Most of the time you can't really understand what the person is saying on them, so it makes it a useless background noise. My boy did learn a lot of spanish from the little people tape I bought for him that has kids singing songs in spanish. I did too for that matter.

Yes, background noise 10 Aug. 2008
By Lee Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
I think it's great. No, I can't understand or hear every word, and neither can the baby, I guess. But that's not the point. She gets to hear the cadence and sounds of languages. She tries these out, internalizes these sounds, not just the sounds of English. Later, when we help her learn other languages, she'll have a much easier time with an authentic accent, because the sounds will not be new to her. Well, assuming she doesn't want to learn Xhosa or Welsh or something.
