Review

The Little Pim series uses immersion and interaction techniques to create an engaging and fun-to-watch language learning experience. Pim, an animated panda, is the series' main character who begins each learning section. Each introductory animated skit is followed by live-action footage of children engaged in everyday activities. Pim narrates these sections, and the French vocabulary words are circled as they are spoken, with a graphic overlay of the word for emphasis. The concepts transition well, with later lessons building on previous ones. The focus is on the first words typically acquired by children (e.g., bed, fork, fruit, I'm tired, etc.). Each DVD teaches more than 60 new words and phrases arranged in five-minute episodes. The narration is clear, crisp, and easy-to-understand; the music is cheerful but not overpowering; and the visuals are colorful and vibrant. The parent guide contains general information on pandas and early language instruction. There are optional English subtitles. --Video Librarian

Julia Pimsleur Levine s Little Pim: Foreign Language and Fun language-immersion series follows the daily activities of the titular animated panda, presented here in French (with separate programs available in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese). Comprised of seven five-minute episodes focused on foods, drinks, utensils, etc., Eating and Drinking combines clips of Little Pim engaged in activities ranging from hand washing to making a tall sandwich, coupled with real-life segments of youngsters and family members cooking and eating together. Featuring onscreen circling of specific items, as well as instant repetition, the program also includes optional English subtitles for words and phrases. With a projected 12 titles in 12 different languages slated for release over the next 18 months, this initial volume in a new language introduction series for toddlers and preschoolers is a promising start. Recommended.

When I learned that there was a foreign language learning DVD with the Pimsleur name attached, I bought the 3 pack set without blinking an eye. I wasn't disappointed!

Little Pim is designed specifically for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and their parents. It uses immersion and interaction in a fun and engaging way with a cute little animated panda, named Pim, as the main character who guides the learning. Each learning section starts with Pim in a short animated skit, then transitions to real children going through everyday activities that are narrated by Pim. The voice of Pim is crisp and clear and the quality of the video is superb.

I've bought a lot of French language learning DVDs, and none come close to Little Pim. My (almost) three year old really likes the little panda and his bamboo soup, or should I say, "soupe de bamboo" :-), and just this morning at breakfast, used a phrase from one of the DVDs.

I would highly recommend this DVD set to anyone interested in teaching their toddlers and preschoolers a foreign language.

I had just purchased the Rosetta Stone homeschool version- French for my 7 year old. I was on the look out for reinforcing materials as well as introducing the language to my 2 yr old as well. This was perfect. I tend to steer away from fast paced, intense television for the toddler stages so the idea of a simple, musical DVD was appealing. It's effective while holding her attention and captivating with cute little "panda antics" and skits in between short lessons. She has her favorite segments and has already shown favortisms which I expect to change with time and advancement. I've caught my 7 yr old staying in tuned with the videos yet grows tired of the slow moving video. However, the simplicity is catchy and it is hard not to pick up on learning. Imagery of words and action is provided while auditory is given through a well enunciated woman's voice. The cartoon-panda breaks up the lesson and also speaks in french almost encouraging the my toddler to engage and "copy".

Okay, I am 61 and wanted to learn a little French. I bought these for myself. They really do teach the language. I watch the videos over and over and have picked up a lot of basic French words. The voice is very clear and easy to understand. I would recommend them for anyone, any age.

I speak French with my daughter almost exclusively. My husband and her babysitters speak to her in English. This DVD set is an excellent supplement to my efforts. It is a modern, high quality production, with interesting images and just the right pace to keep a toddler engaged. Lots of kids and babies to capture a little one's interest.

I have enjoyed Pimsleur for adults (learning Italian) and find their methods to work just as well with children (introduction of a word, followed by lots of use in different contexts).

I bought Little Pim Foreign Language - French for my grandson. I watched all the tapes with him. The story line is somewhat simplistic and after watching the tapes a second time he and I got bored. In my opinion there is not enough interaction with the listener.

I want to say that these DVD's are simply excellent. I love the little panda, but I also love how the DVD goes back and forth from animation to real life. The timing in-between is almost perfect. Just about the time my daughter is losing interest, it switches it up and keeps her attention. Also, the music is wonderful! I make breakfast and even dance along while my daughter giggles, laughs and screams with a huge grin on her face. Some of the other videos out there, like Baby Einstein, my daughter eventually looks for something else to entertain her. I find them exhaustingly slow. I love this set so much I bought a panda stuffed animal to go along with it- which she also loves. I highly recommend this for your baby, but also for a mom who doesn't want to lose her sanity while trying to entertain her child.

I prefer the digital downloads you can buy on littlepim.com personally but we have everything in our house connected to computers.

I have started giving Little Pim videos for gifts to people with 1 or 2 year olds. I can't praise it enough.
It is easy to understand what Little Pim is saying and what that word refers to.
It things kids do all the time being done by kids and narrated by a cute Panda.
1 ) During each episode Little Pim has a quick animated little silly cartoon
2) followed by videos of kids doing normal activities while Little Pim says what they are doing or what they have in the language of the video.
3) After Little Pim reviews everything then that has happened over the last 5 mins.
Then steps 1 to 3 repeat with a new words/videos and cartoon.

My son watches between 10 - 30 mins at each meal and before bed/nap time.
He loves Little Pim he gets very excited about it. (Granted all he watches is Little Pim or about once a week we will let him watch a Disney or Dreamworks movie in French)

When my daughter announced to me that she wanted to learn French, I knew my go-to resource would be Little Pim. The translations and subtitles are easy to understand in the context of the video. However, the pacing of each volume is what is frustrating for my kids. The DVD isn't divided into chapters so that families can navigate between the breaks. Every 5 minutes or so, a segment ends and then flows directly into the next segment, making it difficult to pause or go back to the beginning of the prior segment to discuss it or repeat. I keep hoping that new editions will offer chapter navigation. Otherwise, the flow is too fast and too much for families to absorb.
