Little Pim- Language Immersion DVD Review & Giveaway

0 Shares

As a parent we want to give our children a head start in life.  We give them the important nutrient rich food that will make them grow strong.  We research to find the best schools, daycares, and preschools.  I’m sure many of us even push for “educational” toys over simple action figures or dolls.  In today’s global economy it makes sense to teach your child a second language in an attempt to give them a “head start”.  When I was growing up we didn’t have the internet and the world seemed be a huge vast place.  Today with laptops, desktops, iPad’s, iPhones, and the like the world is literally at our fingertips.  My husband has meetings with people from China and India on a regular basis.  While he doesn’t speak any of the languages from these parts of the world he would certainly have an edge if he did.

My middle son is currently attending a Spanish class once a week.  Don’t be worried that I am over scheduling or demanding too much of my little guy.  I have no expectations for him to become literate in Spanish.  Rather the class is a great way to introduce my son to this language and culture.  The teacher does a great job of making the class fun with songs, games, and books.  And at his age fun is what it should all be about.  Learning can be fun if it is introduced in a child friendly way.

I recently had the opportunity to try the award winning Little Pim series.  Little Pim is a foreign language Immersion Method DVD and CD program for children ages 0-5.   What does Immersion Method mean?  It means there is no English used on the DVD, however there is an option to add English subtitles for parents if wanted.  NO ENGLISH!  Don’t be overwhelmed.  The videos are very basic and only use one to two simply words accompanying images of children.  These DVD’s play upon the simple truth that children like watching other children.  They are not doing anything amazing, but this normal behavior such as eating, playing, and drinking is interesting for kids.

While we watched the three DVD’s included in the gift set we received (it also included a little Pim (panda) bear)my son was excited to recognize words he was familiar with from his class.  He also really liked Little Pim the panda bear.  The panda is cute and makes funny faces in between sequences.   I highly recommend watching the DVD’s WITH your child.  We had a fun time guessing what the word or phrase was that they were talking about.  I feel like this DVD set has reinforced what my son is learning in his Spanish class and is giving him an extra degree of confidence with the language.

Check out this short video for a sample of Little Pim.

Little Pim is available in 10 languages: Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Italian, German, English/ESL, Arabic, Japanese, Russian, and Hebrew.  I would love to own a Norwegian set.  Obviously there isn’t a great demand for this language, but it is my foreign language of choice because of family.  Incidentally these DVD’s would also be great for adults just beginning the process of learning a new language.

Here is a little additional information from the company.

The Little Pim series, winner of 22 awards, makes learning a second language fun and easy for young children. Research has shown that before the age of six, children can learn multiple languages with ease, and knowing two languages enhances memory and analytic skills. Little Pim’s unique Entertainment Immersion MethodTMhelps children learn by simply watching and repeating after Little Pim, the lovable panda and series teacher, while seeing real children play and interact. Children can learn 60 words and phrases per 35 minute DVD and over 360 words and phrases for all 6 DVDs. Flash cards, books and music CDs are also available to reinforce the vocabulary taught. Little Pim is fun for the whole family!
