One of the oldest and best ways to teach kids languages, updated for the 21st century
Grownups have been using simple songs to teach young children the rudiments of languages since long before people danced sur le pont d'Avignon. Now the Let's Sing and Learn series, CD Editions brings that tried-and-true method up-to-date for today's modern kid. Each book/CD set contains collection of 20 original songs that combine catchy melodies with simple, cleverly-disguised lessoning vocabulary and expression.
Written by accomplished songwriter-linguists, the songs cover a variety of subjects, including greetings, colors, counting, the alphabet, the days of the month, relationships, and more. And most importantly, the songs are easy to learn and fun to sing, making them the perfect medium for introducing children, ages three to six, to the words, accents, and rhythms of other languages.
Each book/CD set includes:
- 20 original tunes covering an array of everyday subjects
- A CD recording of the songs that provides a model of proper pronunciation and rhythm
- Simple musical scores that parents and teachers can use to accompany young learners
- English translations for each song and suggested actions
