3 Reasons to Teach Your Children a Foreign Language

March 23, 2011 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: teach kids french children resources

I’ve always loved learning and teaching languages ever since I was a young girl. To me, learning a foreign language is fun and so rewarding. Here are the main three reasons why I’m teaching my children to learn French.

1. Age – Learning a foreign language when you are young is so much easier than when you are an adult or even in college. My children soak up the language like a sponge. Many researchers believe that you learn the ability to learn a foreign language after puberty, especially native-like pronunciation. So, now is the time to start teaching your children a foreign language.

2. Bonding Even if you don’t know a foreign language yourself, you can learn along with your son. Pick a foreign language that you find useful or that interests you and run with it. Having this special time with you toddlers or young children will help you to bond together as a family.

3. Expanding their mind – As youngesters, they rarely think or understand what is happening around the world or even that there are people out there who don’t speak English. While you teach them a foreign language you can teach them about the different cultures and countries of the people who speak that language. You can cook new food together and have a great time learning about new and exciting things!

Animal Sounds in French!

March 20, 2011 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: teach kids french children

We’ve been reading a lot of books in French lately and my children have noticed how all of the animal sounds are written differently in French. I think it’s really neat how every language interprets and hears animal sounds so differently. Below is a list of French animal sounds that you can teach your children.

Dog – ouah
cat – miaou
rooster – cocorico
turkey – glou glou
cow – meuh
bird – cui
duck – coin
pig – groin
donkey – hihan

Learning Colors in French – One Meal at a Time

March 19, 2011 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: teach children french

Are you just starting teaching your children their colors in French? Why not have a whole meal in the color you are trying to teach them? That way during the meal you can repeat the name of the color in French lots of times.

For example:
Orange – mandarin oranges, carrots, mac & cheese, cantelope, pimento cheese
Green – salad, bell peppers, zuchini squash, green beans
Red – red peppers, cherries, strawberries, strawberry ice cream, red beans
Yellow – corn, yellow butter bread, pinapples, bananas, noodles with a yellow cream sauce
Blue – blueberries (okay you’d probably have to cheat on this on and use some food dye)
