Little Pim was created by Julia Pimslaur Levine after discovering there were no high quality educational materials for teaching toddlers a foreign language. Julia's father was Dr. Paul Pimsleur, creator of the Pimsleur method, which is a language-learning program for adults. Little Pim uses the Entertainment Immersion Method® and helps keep children's attention span by use of repetition and play. Little Pim helps make language learning accessible to all children. It is designed for children from birth to age 6.
Little Pim: I Can Count (Spanish) introduces children to 60 Spanish words or phrases. At the beginning, the DVD introduces children to counting in Spanish. Other words or phrases, such as body parts or animals, are brought in to reinforce counting in Spanish, such as "dos ojos" (two eyes) or "tres gatititos" (three cats). My daughter's favorite part was when girls were dresses as "princesas" (princesses) and jumping up and down.
To be honest, I used to be hesitant about having Charis watch a DVD to help her learn, but I have found, she pays attention to it and stays engaged in the lesson. Plus, I'm able to sit down with her and learn as well, since most of what I learned in high school Spanish was forgotten. I highly recommend Little Pim and plan on buying a few DVDs for my daughter.
