Here's a little information about some of our shows...
Primary Spanish is an immersion language program designed for young children. But we've been learning a bit too. And with 66 episodes, there's plenty to learn! Like other StepStar programs, this one has all the hooks; a lively host, short films galore, and participation from remote classrooms during the recording. Hearing "other kids" learning the same thing makes it more fun somehow.
French in Action. This series uses active participation to increase fluency in French, while introducing French culture. Pierre Capretz's proven language-immersion method is presented within a humorous teleplay with native speakers of all ages and backgrounds. The storyline of an American student and a young Frenchwoman's adventures in Paris and the French countryside is reinforced by Dr. Capretz's on-camera instruction. Bon? Mais oui!
