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.
