Default French Songs

http://www.mamalisa.com/?p=22&t=ec&c=22

This site has a list of childrens French songs and nursery rhymes that you can listen to. The words are written in French and English.

My 5,6 and 10 year old enjoy using it.

DS is using the Michel Thomas Course to learn German. OH and myself are using it to 'brush up' as we don't get to speak German with his family as often as we used to (OH is half German)

Oma was sceptical that DS could learn it without 'having lessons in school', but after only a couple of hours listening to the first CD he was having a sensible conversation with her - she was very impressed

More info about the course here, but you can buy the courses from many different shops/online.

DS is 12, not sure whether younger children would like it

For the very young ones, I've discovered Dora The Explorer; she introduces a few basic words and phrases in Spanish - seems like a good start, and done in a fun and enjoyable way.

Yo! way to go! WTF would you want to talk to your school French teacher?

Language teaching resources are just getting better and better.

Hi!

I home educated my two children; and now feeling myself somewhat "redundant" I want to offer my help with teaching kids Russian language and Art.

So, if anyone is interested, please let me know.
