Why not start when they are toddlers?
I studied languages relatively late in life when I started grammar school – but children, even when they are toddlers can easily pick up another language.
Last year I decided to write my first book, which enables parents to help their children learn French. So, here are a few tips to help your child learn French in a fun way! And as a parent you can also learn French too.
Many parents may consider hiring a French tutor, but this may prove ineffective as learning another language would generally take more than one or two hours a week.
Children learn by repetition — constant repetition — and learning a language is no different
One of my customers who owns the book
The Adventures of Vince the Cat – Vince Goes to Paris
has told me that he has read the book over 40 times to his daughter at her request. He then pleaded with me to write another book!!
A great solution to help your children to learn French would be to hire a French nanny to speak with them all day, or move to France but maybe that wouldn’t be possible for everyone. Although,
I really believe that the best tutor to teach a child is someone who is close to them – like you – the parents for example! Now… Fear not! If you don’t speak French yourself – I have just the solution…
How can my child learn French if I don’t speak the language myself?
If you don’t speak any French, then you could start by taking a couple of hours of French lessons and learn the basic every day words; numbers, colours, animals to start with. You could also start with this new resource designed for both parents and children –
The Adventures of Vince the Cat – Vince Goes to Paris.
In this book – I have subtly included French words and phrases into the story – so your child may not even realise that she/he is actually learning.
You will both get to meet new characters, learn about the famous places in Paris and be able to familiarise yourself with the French Language. Best of all, is you can learn French easily by following the pronunciation tips at the back.
