Wow! Seriously! This is the modern way to learn languages!
Wow, these books are awesome! I thought I was downloading an ebook and sat down to read a blog in french about a young boy called Danny…..I was kind of right, but this is so much more than that!
I happen to learn best by reading as a child; but others learn by listening, others by talking/doing, and others by comparison......This is where these books come into their element!
Turning the first electronic page, I could see both the French on one side and its English equivalent on the other…and then I realised, after starting to read the French text (to see what I could actually remember from school!) was that there were buttons allowing me to hear the text being spoken! How cool is it, that I can read in French and try to determine its meaning, then check that against the English version, then listen to the pronunciation of the words, practice it myself and then again listen to how it was meant to sound! And if you are French and reading this, it doesn't matter - it works both ways!
The pictures were vibrant, the text was well written and engaging, and the interaction was superb! I can't believe I am saying this, but I actually enjoyed learning French again! And no matter how your child learns in the most suitable way for them, these are sure to make it that much easier!
