Publisher's Summary

Mes Premiers Mots de Francais is the first part of My First French Lessons, an exciting audio programme for children aged four to ten. It contains more than 40 basic words & expressions (e.g. numbers from 1 to 20, colours and days of the week), some finger mime exercise (Le Petit Pouce) and songs (Meunier tu dors, Frere Jacques and the French national anthem, La Marseillaise)
My First French Lessons contains 4 more themed lessons: Animals, Food, School and Body Parts.
The lessons encourage children to develop an interest in the French language and culture. They are designed to be fun, memorable, engaging, confidence-boosting and to build solid foundations for further study of the French language.
Ideally, you should leave some time between listening to each lesson. Lessons can be repeated as many times as you like. Children should be encouraged to mime along (finger mimes exercises) and to participate as much as possible in the lessons.

Good introduction to French

Good material, enough vocabulary and songs to learn. Alexa is engaging and has a good clear voice.

excellent for adults wanting to learn as children

this is how we all learn to speak our first language, and this is how everybody should learn how to speak their second, third, fourth, and more! why spend time trying to read a language that you can't speak? You need to know how to ask, observe, understand, talk, etc in the language that you're trying to learn, so download this book, practice practice practice, and learn away!

Good for younger children.

Would you listen to My First French Lessons again? Why?

No. I know what all the words mean except the songs. They're too young sounding for me too.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not relevant.

What about Alexa Polidoro’s performance did you like?

She has a pleasant voice to listen to, and she can sing.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Don't think it would be good as a film.

Any additional comments?

Another good book for younger children, just like the others in the series.

Great intro for kids!!

My 3yr old actually likes it... so, it's impossible not to give it 5*. It's a friendly, conversational style, with lessons about 10mins long... Alexa asks you to repeat after her, asks "what comes next..." type questions (e.g. what day comes after Wed or what number comes after 10), plus has some songs. All light hearted and jovial... would recommend as an easy intro into french for children.
