Toddler Magazine Bonjour! Hola! Buon Giorno! Young children are like sponges when it comes to learning new things. Toddler Magazine goes over the benefits of getting a child started on learning a new language at a younger age.
Just had to tell you that my daughter *loves* the Lango CD. Each morning this week since Spanish class, she runs into the living room and jumps up and down yelling, "dance, dance!"
I just want to let you know that my daughter, Casey, already loves Spanish. "Mommy, Spanish is cool!" is the exact quote I got this afternoon. Many thanks for working so hard to bring this great program to EARTHS!
We have all learned many Spanish words and phrases. My kids both have absorbed the language like little fish. They usually remember words and phrases that I do not and they are always asking me how to say certain things in Spanish (which either have to look up or ask Kelli). I highly recommend Kelli and the Lango class!
