Review

If you are looking for a great video to begin the introductory process to the Spanish language, look no further than this DVD. Parents reported that the methods used, including zero translation and total immersion worked wonders, despite the fact that many were skeptical at first. Kids would watch over and over, enjoying Jorge the musician responsible for the Whistlefritz music, and Fritzi the Mouse. It is the repetition that finally began to pay dividends as children would recognize, then understand and then repeat what they learned. Parents told us they were learning too! --The National Parenting Center

This educational DVD is very colorful and a delightful way to teach Spanish to your young children. Using everyday conversation is how we learn any language and this is the way this DVD teaches your youngsters Spanish. There are no translated subtitles to follow, just a wonderful and entertaining show that the children will be in awe of as they watch and learn. Dove awards their Family-Approved Seal for all ages to Spanish for Beginners: Adentro y Afuera (Inside and Out). --The Dove Foundation

Viewers young and old were captivated from the moment the bright-eyed, engaging and charming host, Maria, appeared on screen. Maria spends her time searching around her house for her pet mouse Fritzi. Throughout this delightful game of hide and seek, viewers hear conversational Spanish introduced by Maria, who has a special talent for speaking clearly and pronouncing words with exactness. The DVD skillfully freshens up tried and true tools such as live action with puppets, animation, children and music to teach young viewers household words in Spanish. --Parents' Choice Foundation

Product Description

Winner of a 2009 Parents' Choice Foundation SILVER Award. Winner of Learning Magazine's 2010 Teachers Choice Award for the Family. Winner of a Dove Foundation Family-Approved Seal. Winner of a 2009 iParenting Media Award. Winner of a Dr. Toy Best Play and Learn Vacation Program Award. Winner of The National Parenting Center's 2009 Seal of Approval. Endorsed by KIDS FIRST! Winner of a Grandkids Gift Guide Super Product Award.

It's non-stop fun as teacher Maria and the Whistlefritz kids search for the mischievous mouse Fritzi. Using live action, animation, puppets, music, and fun, children explore their world -- inside the house and out on the playground -- learning the words for everyday objects along the way. An ideal introduction to Spanish, and perfect companion to the other award-winning DVDs in the Spanish for Kids series. This DVD teaches Spanish using the immersion teaching method recommended by language acquisition experts. (For more information about immersion, please watch the Language Immersion video on the company's website.) A Translation Guide is included which provides an easy reference for parents who are first-time learners of Spanish.

Designed for children ages 2-7, Adentro y Afuera is perfect for the whole family!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spanish Immersion Made Fascinating! September 19, 2009
Format:DVD
Educational research continues to point out that the best method for learning a second language is in early childhood, through immersion - the same way children learn their mother tongue. Living North America puts parents who seek to give their children a bilingual advantage in a difficult position. The vast majority of us are monolingual, speaking only English, the international language of trade and commerce.

So, what's a mom to do who wants to equip her young children with a solid foundation in a second language when she only speaks one? The lack of high quality resource for Spanish immersion was just the catalyst needed for one mom to launch Whistlefritz and the Spanish for Beginners series in 2006.

The latest release in the series - Adentro y Afuera (Inside and Out) is designed to appeal to children from ages two through seven - and does it ever. Who would have thought that a 30-minute DVD, entirely in Spanish, would so captivate the hearts and attention of my one, three, and six-year-old?

I was a bit skeptical as I popped in the disc. My children are largely unfamiliar with Spanish. They've seen Dora, watched some educational DVDs that teach common phrases through English to Spanish translation and repetition, but have no formal language education under their belts. I was so surprised to find my children singing, dancing, and laughing throughout an entirely Spanish presentation of what could pass for cable television children's programming.

The animated host "Maria" leads children through scenarios revolving around a small, animated mouse named Fritzi who whistles to communicate (hence the company name, Whistlefritz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, draws kids in with real people & music December 13, 2010
By FT
Format:DVD
I am a native speaker from Venezuela and have tried lots of Spanish DVD's from the library. Many of them are boring, annoying, or poorly done in Spanglish. I am not a big fan of the Spanglish used in popular cartoons like Dora The Explorer. I prefer the whole video to be in one language. My 4.5 year old has been watching Plaza Sesamo since he was 2 and loved it for a really long time. After 2.5 years he's become curious about the many other English cartoons available, so I was extremely happy to find this DVD to get him excited about Spanish again. He loves all 3 DVD's in the series, and I wish they made more. His 2 year old brother also loves it, even though his Spanish is not as good as his brother's, but the cute songs really keep them both entertained. I highly recommend this one as well as Vamos a Jugar and Los Animales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous DVD March 26, 2011
By Lena
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a bilingual speech-language pathologist, and I bought this dvd for my 20-month old twins. I am not a native Spanish speaker, but I want my children to be exposed to as much Spanish as possible. I am so happy with my purchase. My children love the dvd. It holds their attention and they are beginning to repeat some of the words and try to sing along to the songs. The way the language is presented is very effective. There is full immersion with plenty of visual and contextual clues (no translations, which is great). There is also repetition of the targeted vocabulary and sentence structures, but in fun and interesting presentations. My children enjoy all of the characters (cartoon and real people). I highly recommend all of these Spanish for Kids dvds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spanish for young children - and their parents May 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I took German in high school for the sole reason that the German class took a trip to Germany every year, whereas the Spanish class didn't travel. Then in college I abandoned German for Russian and was told that I have "an incorrigible American accent" (perhaps because I'm an incorrigible American?). And I've spent my adult life regretting those decisions because Spanish would be a very useful language to know, but despite repeated efforts of varying lengths and diligence, I simply can't master it. Therefore, when I had kids I resolved that one way or another, they would master at least two languages while they're young enough to do it relatively easily.

The problem is that it is very difficult for a monolingual parent to raise a bilingual child. Videos and CDs only do so much because they are passive learning. Books can help add interaction, but I don't want my kids learning Spanish with my bad pronunciation. The best choice is language immersion, but such programs don't come cheap. In fact, when I enroll my older daughter in public school next year, I'm tempted to pretend she doesn't speak English so they'll put her in the bilingual program. But something tells me they won't believe me.

With all of that said, this video (and the other Whistlefritz videos) is perhaps the best introductions to Spanish that I've found for young children. Yes, it's passive learning, but it's engaging enough to keep kids' attention and the songs are catchy enough to get kids to try to sing along. "Maria" has a bubbly and engaging child-friendly personality which draws younger kids to want to participate with her. The best part is that it is solely in Spanish and kids learn from visual cues such as the objects in the video and Maria's facial expressions.
