Teach Kids French (Fun & Easy)

I had a really hard time finding just the right resources for teaching my kids French. It’s not that there aren’t resources out there, but perhaps I was a bit too particular about what I was looking for. What I was really looking for was a curriculum that used fun videos to introduce vocabulary words, with catchy music, short stories, and fun activities that could help reinforce the words and teach children how to speak French in a fun, interactive way.

Well, I couldn’t actually find what I was looking for all in one place, but I have been able to compile resources to create my own sort of French learning “curriculum”, which is basically just a collection of YouTube videos and fun language learning activities.

French Cartoons

One of the best ways to learn French is just to be immersed in it! Here are some great children’s cartoons that can help kids grow in their comprehension of the French language:

>> Petit Ours Brun (Little Brown Bear)

>> T’choupi et Doudou (Charley and Mimmo)

>> Trotro (Donkey)

Also, a LOT of the animated Disney films are also available in French, just change the language options on your DVD’s and let your kids watch them in French!

Audio Stories

Once your kids get good at comprehending French with visual aids (movies and pictures) you can move on to just doing audio resources to help with further comprehension of the language through just hearing the spoken words without so much of the visual support. Here are some good resources to help with that:

>> French Children’s Stories (The French Experiment)

>> French Children’s Stories (The Fable Cottage)

>> Albums et Histoires
