Little Pim & Your Child

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.

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.

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. The flash cards, especially, are a timeless, versatile teaching tool that appeal to kids of all ages.

We recommend that you do not correct your child’s pronunciation. Rather, be affirming, and model the correct word or pronunciation.

Using Little Pim Effectively

Little Pim is an immersion program designed to surround children in the sounds of a new language. Since the videos are theme-based, they can be watched in any order, but if you are using the lesson plans included with the Teacher’s Kit, we recommend you watch them in numerical order. The lesson plans are designed to help introduce the videos and reinforce vocabulary with playful, interactive follow-up activities that can be adapted for immersion and non-immersion classrooms.

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 volume set. It is best to expose your child to the sounds of the foreign language as often as possible.

Practicing along with your child will help keep them motivated – even if you are not a native speaker of the language. Watch the videos 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 videos 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 videos after each viewing.

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 videos or our companion guides and scripts for proper pronunciation.

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.
