Mark Pentleton of Radio Lingua Network fame has one more worked his magic and a few days ago, launched a new addition to the plethora of products already available to help you learn languages.
Called School Run French, the series of 6-7 minute episodes allow you to take advantage of the school run, football run, Brownies / Badgers / BB run - in fact, any short journey to learn or practice your French. As Mark explains
Many of our listeners have been asking for materials which they can useSchool Run French is available on iTunes to download and sample audio
with their children or grandchildren, and we've been working for some time
on the development of materials aimed at this group. We're delighted to
announce "School Run French" as the first in a series of shows which will
be aimed at younger language learners.
Picking up a language at an early age equips children with valuable skills
for life, and just as our many hundreds of thousands of adult listeners are
learning a language in their coffee break, so too can children learn a
language while they're doing something else, for example in the car on the
way to school, football practice, ballet class, or whatever.
School Run French breaks down the French language into short chunks of 6-7
minutes, and every episode contains an interactive audio game which helps
children consolidate what they've learned.
episodes will be put there on a weekly basis. However, the first 'pack' of five
lessons with colourful pdf puzzle sheets is now available for £5.00 (+VAT for EU customers).
I've had a listen and I love it - so do my 'testers' - marvellous having two kids who are a acaptive audience! They like the fact that it's fun and there are games and challenges to test whether they know the answer.
Just itching for Mark to do School Run Spanish as I am constantly asked for such a resource by the parents, grandparents and carers of pupils at school. How about it, Mark? ¡Por favor!
