French for Kids: Learn French with Penelope and Pezi Beg. Level 1 Vol. 1 (2008) Review
(More customer reviews)I'm very surprised at the negative reviews. While this DVD is clearly not made from Walt Disney Studios, it does what it's supposed to do - introduce French words and phrases to children in an easy-to-follow way. The actors speak authentic French. What is taught is quite useful - introductions,counting, colors, playing, food, etc. The actors use these words and phrases within a simple storyline and they are again repeated during the review section. They are also repeated once more in the songs that are scattered throughout the DVD (the songs are pretty catchy by the way - more so than in other children's videos). So, if you are looking for pure entertainment,
this video is probably not for you but if you want a tool that can hold your child's attention and teach them French, then you should give this a try.
