Our videos engage little ones by tapping into their natural love of play and learning. Each video teaches child-friendly vocabulary based around a theme. They’ll learn words such as cake, doll, train, and simple phrases, as well as numbers 1-10. Episodes are perfectly paced for young children and strategic repetition of vocabulary helps kids retain the new words and phrases. Kids respond enthusiastically to Little Pim’s combination of animated and live-action videos.
Whether supplementing language instruction from a caregiver, reinforcing a foreign language preschool or providing a stand-alone introduction to foreign language at home, Little Pim is the most sophisticated language-learning tool on the market for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
Little Pim is specifically designed for children under six. Our unique Entertainment Immersion Method™ creates an engaging and fun-to-watch systematic language-learning experience for your child. Words and concepts are reinforced throughout the series, and later lessons build on previous ones.
Our goal is to keep Little Pim accessible to all children. Compared to other products, Little Pim is quite affordable. While other foreign language teaching methods can cost upwards of $100, you can start with the Little Pim program for as little as $17.95 for a single DVD or download.
Little Pim is just as entertaining for babies and toddlers as any of wide array of videos currently on the market. The difference is, with Little Pim, children are also learning a foreign language while they are having fun.
Using Little Pim
Our recommendation is for babies and toddlers to watch at least two five-minute episodes two to three times a week, and for older children to watch the whole DVD. It is best to expose your child to the sounds of the foreign language as often as possible.
Always model, rather than correcting. If your child makes a mistake, simply reinforce the word and show that you have understood them, then repeat the word with the correct pronunciation. You can refer to the DVD for proper pronunciation.
Practicing along with your child will help keep them motivated – even if you are not a native speaker of the language. Watch the DVDs together and repeat the words and phrases aloud. If you know the vocabulary, you can comment on what is happening or predict what might happen next. Speaking and interacting while watching the DVD will help engage your child and enhance their learning. You can also put labels on objects around the house or simply find and name the objects mentioned in the DVDs after each viewing.
Language Learning in Young Children
Introducing your child to a foreign language will be a fun learning experience now and a critical investment in his or her quality of life for all the years to come. Several studies prove that children are uniquely and temporarily primed to acquire up to three languages before the age of six with ease. After this early learning window the brain’s plasticity diminishes dramatically.
Additionally, scientific research shows that bilinguals, especially those who have acquired their second language before the age of six, demonstrate superior reading and writing skills, as well as advanced analytical and social skills. Economists predict that knowing a foreign language will give our children a competitive advantage in an increasingly global economy.
It has been scientifically proven that children are well equipped to absorb up to three different languages without any confusion between languages. In fact, research shows that bilinguals demonstrate superior reading, writing, analytical and social skills, and in fact develop greater vocabularies in their mother tongue.
During the first years of life, the human brain is uniquely and temporarily equipped for language learning with the least effort. Infants, especially, are biologically primed to detect different sounds and nuances in foreign languages with clarity and accuracy. By six years of age this plasticity begins to diminish and then requires an increased effort in retaining new sounds or patterns not frequently heard. Check out our Research for more information about language learning in young children.
Babies respond to the colorful imagery and gentle pace of Little Pim’s videos. Toddlers are engaged by the everyday activities shown in Little Pim’s videos and books, such as eating, drinking, playing, and napping. And preschoolers love to repeat the words in a foreign language and follow the antics of the series’ adorable main character, Little Pim the panda.
Yes, children learning a new language at school will find Little Pim to be an effective supplement for reinforcing vocabulary and teaching pronunciation.
Parents & Caregivers
Little Pim empowers parents and caregivers with no prior experience in a foreign language to be the language teacher. Simply watch the videos with your children, repeating the words aloud and then continue to reinforce the new words at home. Your involvement keeps your child motivated and engaged. We also recommend that you consult our Parent Guides, where you will find pronunciation tips and companion scripts.
We recommend that you do not correct your child’s pronunciation. Rather, be affirming, and model the correct word or pronunciation.
There is significant scientific evidence that links early language acquisition, particularly before the age of six, with enhanced cognitive abilities. Fluency in a language is achieved through frequent exposure and interaction. With language learning products that include videos, books, music, apps, and more, the Little Pim program is an effective, interactive, and convenient way of exposing a child to a foreign language.
