First intro to French, best used with the Usborne book
on 12 April 2017
Neither my son (6) nor I found this very inspiring. About five minutes is wasted at the beginning with a long version of Frere Jacques in French whose lyrics are not supplied, when there are tons of other fun little songs in French that are easier to join in with and could have been used instead. Very little conversational French is actually spoken, just several basic phrases like "Je m'appelle...", " Ca va?" etc., and quite a lot of assorted bits of vocab, just as in the Usborne book. It helps with accent, I suppose, but my son got very bored and so did I because there was too little fun story or joining-in bits. It's too basic for a child with some working knowledge of French, and I guess we were looking for something a bit more advanced.
