Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids   

Teaches Spanish to children from as young as preschool level up into the teen years. This is an immersion approach, but the videos are carefully designed to make the content comprehensible for those who have no prior exposure to Spanish.

Each DVD has a total run time of about 45 minutes. A suggested schedule page that came with my DVDs recommends that children watch the first segment straight through on the first day, then re-watch it in segments a few times so that children have plenty of time to absorb the vocabulary and usage. Each segment concludes with a rapid visual review of the vocabulary that has been introduced in that segment.  Learn More

Whistlefritz

Founded in 2006, Whistlefritz was borne out of a mom’s passion to teach her own children Spanish. After reading research showing that early childhood was the best time to learn a language, Whistlefritz’s founding mom set out on a mission to find fun and educational teaching materials for her children. She searched for videos with engaging storylines, featuring live speakers rather than cartoons, and teaching through immersion. Not finding what she wanted, she decided to create it: engaging, playful, live-action Spanish immersion programs for her own kids and kids everywhere!  Learn More
