DESCRIPTION:From the moment babies are born, they use their developing senses to discover the world. In terms of sight, bold patterns in contrasting colors or black and white are initially preferred. As for sounds, Mother s gentle voice, in any language, is music to baby's ears. Language Nursery: Voices From Many Lands acquaints your baby with the sounds of foreign language by presenting delightful, visually stimulating images accompanied by spoken passages, natural sounds and music -- including nursery rhymes sung by mothers in their native languages of English, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. It's a rich, multicultural experience you and your baby can share as you watch, listen and play together! END

What you ARE doing is keeping doors open for future language learning. Remember, this video is made for infants. Beore 6 months of age, infants are able to hear all phonemes (basically, sounds) in any language in the world. After that critical age (and note how young it is!), babies begin to lose this ability.
So no, your baby Einstein, haha, will not learn German from this video. But should he decide to learn it later on, and you continue to expose him to the sounds now and then, he'll have the mental tools to learn to speak accentless German.
Note: I have a master's from Georgetown University in Spanish Linguistics, as well as my own 4 month old son. Though I have studied the documentation for these claims about critical periods for language learning, I always had my secret doubts about what infants really knew. I can tell you from personal experience now that my son prefers people speaking English and Spanish to any other lanugage. Even when he's crying, when the English or Spanish parts of the video come on, he stops and looks at the TV, but does not do this for any of the other lanugages! I'm astonished.
