My daughter recently decided that she wanted to learn French, so I thought this would be some entertainment/education. The video is neither, and I cannot bring myself to watch it a second time. And my daughter is not interested in it again either, in fact I had to continuously encourage her to watch the video the first time. It is so poorly done that I had to have the subtitles on to understand it. Yes, it is repetitive, but that doesn't help, if the child (or adult) doesn't understand what the characters are referring to. I could have easily misinterpreted if not for the translation. The narrator has to explain in English, because the editing leaves out scenes that would make it follow a comprehensive time line. For example the in one scene the children are leaving the house to go to school, but in the next scene they walk back in the door apparently arriving home from school.
The characters also tend to talk among themselves more than to include the the viewer. The viewer is not engaged to participate like in Kai Lan or Dora videos or previously mentioned Spanish language videos. I cannot image how bad the first video must have been when I see the reviews that the second volume is much improved. I based my purchase decision on the reviews of both the first and second volumes...seeing as how volume 2 had a limited number or reviews. The reviewers who rated it more than one star must not have watched or received paid compensation for their favorable review. Do not buy.
