She was accepted into the exchange program and just arrived in France a week ago, at age 9. She'll be living with a family for 6 months to have the cultural and linguistic experience of a lifetime, learning French through pure immersion. Here's the incredible thing: her French mother says that, just days after arrival, her French accent is already PERFECT!
The CD places special focus on those sounds that are unique to French and not used in English. My daughter especially loved practicing the French "R" sound through a fun exercise on the CD that compares it with gargling.
If you want your child to speak French with a native accent, even if they won't have formal lessons until later, you can't make a better investment. My older daughter did the same exchange, living in France for 6 months at age 10, and her accent never quite sounded native. I believe listening to this CD for a year and a half is the key to my younger daughter's pronunciation success.
--Parent guide explaining language acquisition in general, and bilingual/multilingual language development in particular. According to the package, the author is a professor of Speech and Language Pathology, and trilingual herself. The research cited in the book is worth the price alone. As a Psychologist, I truly appreciate when products are developed with a scientific basis.
--Lyrics of all the tracks in French, with English translations
--Songs and rhymes divided up by developmental stage to expose your child to sounds they are most sensitive to in that stage.
I am not a native French speaker, so I cannot comment on the authenticity of the songs or accents. However, the research presented in the guide makes me trust this product more than others I have heard that just play English songs translated into a foreign language. Most importantly, my 10-month old seems to enjoy the songs while she plays. I am interested in other language CDs in this series. I hope they have the same kind of professionals developing them.
