Parents and Teachers Share Why They Chose Little Pim.
We love hearing from our community of parents and teachers who chose Little Pim to teach their little ones a new language.
Watch this video to hear what real moms have to say about Little Pim. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
“Little Pim is entertaining, engaging and funny, all while teaching children a second language. What more could a parent ask for?”
Being bilingual herself, Syma says it was important for her son Atticus to learn French because it gave her a leg up in school and her career and she wanted to give her son the same advantages. She gave Atticus Little Pim as a gift for his second birthday and has been thrilled to watch him learn.
“Atticus loves the animations of Little Pim and often asks to watch them again and again. He loves to yell the words he knows at the TV as they are spoken. I know Little Pim is working when Atti points to an object he knows and calls out its name in French.”
“The total immersion approach used in the series is unlike any other language program available for children.”
Isabella can’t say enough about how well Little Pim’s videos captivate her 9-month-old daughter Violetta. She says the total immersion approach Little Pim uses keeps Violetta entertained for much longer than other educational videos she’s tried.
“The words and phrases taught through Little Pim are perfect. The music is light and unobtrusive, and the mix of bright animation and real people seems to captivate her in a way that I haven’t seen with any other language programs.”
“It’s important that my child grows up bilingual. With the digital downloads, you can take these fun, entertaining videos anywhere.”
“Maximo is half South American, and it is important to us that he grows up bilingual, hearing the language day to day. Little Pim has been great as he watches fun, colorful videos while learning at the same time! They are now his favorite, which has been a lifesaver when traveling.
Since you can download the Little Pim videos, they are able to play any time, anywhere – in the middle of nowhere Pennsylvania, mid melt-down in a restaurant. Even mom has increased her Spanish vocabulary thanks to Little Pim – you’re never too old for dancing pandas!”
“Whenever he goes to the drawer, I know that he wants Little Pim. He was very engaged from the first viewing.”
Joyce Shavers had trouble finding language learning programs for her 2-year-old son Xander, partly because she didn’t feel they were as suited to a child of his age. Until she found Little Pim. Her Xander has loved Little Pim since the first time he watched a video.
“We like the practical day to day vocabulary and the mixture of seeing real people along with the animation. It definitely seems like the most appropriate program for young children.”
WHAT TEACHERS HAVE TO SAY
Educators praise Little Pim for its popularity with children and effectiveness in the classroom.
Check out some of the letters we’ve received from real teachers about how Little Pim’s Teacher’s Kits fit into their curriculum.
“As a French teacher, it’s always been important to pass on bilingual skills to my children. But since I didn’t grow up in a bilingual setting myself, I wasn’t sure exactly how to do that. When I learned about Little Pim and how they use the same methods that kids acquire their first language to acquire their new language, I knew this would be a great fit for our family. It’s a part of our homeschool routine and my kids LOVE watching the videos and throwing around their French skills.” – Leah Heffner, French teacher & Homeschool mom, Tennessee
“The narration is clear, crisp, and easy-to-understand; the music is cheerful but not overpowering; and the visuals are colorful and vibrant.” – Denise A. Garofalo, Astor Learning Center, Rhinebeck, NY
“The students enjoy the character of Little Pim and look forward to seeing him.” – Joshua Cabral, Member of the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Foreign Language Association
“The Little Pim series is one of the more professionally constructed and executed approaches to the total immersion method of language instruction.” – Ann Welton, Helen B. Stafford Elementary, Tacoma, WA
