Language for Little Learners


Getting started with the basics…

April 20, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

If you are wondering what the very first thing you should teach your children in French is…well it’s really up to you, but I like to start with bonjour! It’s a great word that means hello, good day and just a greeting in general. You can reinforce it throughout the day and with little toddlers you can try to even teach them bonjour before you teach them Hi in English. With older kids try to stop saying hello completely and just replace it with bonjour, in no time they will be doing the same thing.

Another great word to start with is coucou (pronounced koo-koo). This word means hi or hello and is also used when playing peek-e-boo with babies. It’s a less formal word, but it used very frequently especially in France.
