Our new “Mostly German” CD is on sale now.
Singing is a really powerful tool in language learning, research is now showing. In singing you pick up the sounds of a language and quickly join in yourself. By bypassing the analytical part of the brain, you quickly acquire a good accent. This works for grown ups as well as children. When singing, you are no longer limited by grammar tables and vocab lists, free to enjoy the language and learn along the way.
For little ones, it’s an amazing foundation in language learning and the start of a bright future. We’ve seen this time and time again in our classes and now you can enjoy it at home too, with the most popular songs from our German classes. Most of these songs have not been translated into English before. We’ve also included verses in French, Spanish, Mandarin and Esperanto. Contrary to popular belief this does not confuse language learners (big and small) but actually helps language acquisition.Though these songs may be children’s songs, adults will enjoy singing along too.
Get your own copy, and see how much fun language learning can be!
We’ve been enjoying it as a family in the car this weekend. Bopping along to “Grün Grün Grün / Green, green, green”, hopping with the bunnies with “Häschen in der Grube/ Bunny in the burrow” and riding our bus with “Die Räder am Bus”. My kids keep requesting it which is a seal of approval to me!
This has been our school run sound track for the past two weeks. It’s packed with catchy tunes in “mostly” German but there’s a bit of French, Spanish and even some Chinese too. We’re getting quite good! – Kate Eccles
The CD is only £10.
It’s a great present and a fantastic family language learning tool.
