In a great show of bipartisan agreement, three U.S. presidents were recently reported to be bragging about their grandchildren's ability to speak another language: Presidents Bush, Clinton and Trump. All grandparents should have these bragging rights.
In fact, increasing numbers of parents realize that an early start learning a foreign language has great advantages. But, only 25% of elementary schools, public or private, offer any kind of foreign language instruction. What can parents do about this?
Bonjour!Let's Learn French is for anyone who has a child roughly 6-10 in his or her life and would like to give that child the advantage of starting to learn French at an early age. Even children younger than 6 can benefit.
The book can be used by parents (grandparents, etc.)with their children whether they know French or not. Parents can go to the website http://www.polyglotkidz.com to download the free audio version so the children can learn the correct pronunciation.
Children love a story. The book captivates kids with an entertaining story that teaches French, and introduces them to the culture of France. There is a variety of activities which encourages them to use the French that they learned, including a skit, Culture Corner and a song.
