For Children Ages 5–11
By Judith White
Great for Kids Who Love to Color and Mimic New Sounds!
Phrase-a-Day French is a fun way for young children to learn words and phrases in French that are easy to say and relate to their daily lives. Children learn a variety of everyday expressions by listening and coloring. The illustrations, vocabulary, and activities are organized by seasons of the year. All voices on the audio, both adults and children, are native speakers, and are accompanied by original music and sound effects.
First, listen to the audio together and encourage the young learner to imitate everything the parents and children say. Then, follow along in the coloring book, where the child can color, draw, and add to the pictures. Encourage the child to repeat listening to the audio, to mimic the French voices, and to share original drawings with you. Choose one phrase daily and use it in context at home, at school, or at play.

With over 100 million speakers, it is an important international language, and is considered by many to be the language of diplomats and theorizers.
