Little Pim will teach your kids another language!

little-pim-logoWhen I was 2 my parents immigrated to America from Ukraine (former USSR). Through out my childhood my parents always spoke Russian in the house and of course I picked up on it but I wasn’t that good at speaking. However, I never learned how to read or write. When I was in High School I had a bunch of Russian friend. They used to torture me because I had such a heavy accent and couldn’t say the big words. Well needless to say, I learned. Now I have 2 kids of my own but the issue is I have no one to speak in Russian to. My children’s father is American and my current husband is from Italy. There is really no family close enough to upkeep with the language and it is important that they develop their  language skills. Being diverse in another language will enable doors to open for future opportunities. So its time to start them while they are young. Their brains are sponges and they just soak it up.

Little Pim it is an interactive, animated learning system gear to children ages 0-6 years old. With 12 languages to choose from, their proprietary method teaches your child 360 words and phrases. They include video series, flashcard sets, books and music keep kids entertained while inspiring in them a lifelong love of language learning. The best part about it is you do not even need a foreign language background. Who wouldn’t want a fun and easy way of learning?

My son, who is 6, loved it. He thought that the interactive bear was adorable. He has been watching it a few days a week and let me tell you, he is saying words sporadically. He asks a lot of question and he seems very eager to keep learning. My daughter, who is 8 also sits there with him while he is watching. Although her Russian is much better then his, she is doing great as well.

Little Pim sets can be found in Spanish, Chinese, French, English, German, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, and Portuguese. Check them out for more information:

    I’ve been really interested in Little Pim for all three of my kiddos and I know that while it’s geared more towards younger kids that my tween would love it. She just wants to properly learn Spanish and I think this would be a wonderful tool to get her started and then her and her brothers can do it together. Anything for sibling bonding and helping them achieve higher expectations for adult hood while they are young. I have been job hunting and I live in the city…. SO many job descriptions now state, “Bilingual preferred” or something along those lines. I want my children to be fluent in speaking, writing and reading in Spanish by their teen years. Lets just hope I can accomplish this since their grade school does not offer foreign language.

    Love Little Pim. We used this with my son almost 4 years ago. He really enjoyed the program and did learn some spanish. WE really should do this again. It is so great to have this opportunity for kids.

    We used Little Pim for Spanish on DVD when my son was younger. He loved it, too!
    Sadly, we haven’t kept up the learning on a continual basis. But, he still remembers many of the basic words.

    Little Pim is great! I used to check these out all the time at the library, but I have never used the online version and will check it out ASAP! I want to teach my daughter Spanish so bad! Thanks for this review!

    I have heard of little ones learning a second language. It is so amazing that they can pick up on it so easily, especially with programs like this. My little guy would probably be able to learn it but still not speak it because of his apraxia.

    Wish I had known about this for my daughter. She is 11 now and wants to learn Spanish. Hmm, maybe good for me to learn so basics to keep up with her. – Stephanie for Winona

    My kids have seen videos with Little Pim in the past and they love the little guy. It would be great to teach my kids another language. I learned Spanish and French in school and I still know a lot. I am trying to teach my kids a few words here and there. I’d love to check out this program.

    I’ve heard a lot of really great things about Little Pim. I think it’s so smart to work on teaching a second language to kids when they’re really young. I kind of wish I did! My son starts 7th grade next year and will be taking a language, I feel like I missed the train on giving him a good head start with it.

    We have friends that are from the Ukraine as well, the kids all learn to speak Russian at home and they don’t learn english until they go to school. Makes for a few interesting years but they are totally fluent in both languages.
    I would love to “freshen up” my french. I took french 30 in High School but that was over 20 years ago!
