My name is Kristin and I am a Mom of two very active boys aged 3 and 5. Like many Moms, I want my kids to learn how to speak other languages because I know how valuable and enriching this can be. I studied French in school and have family who live in France, so I am working on teaching them French. Every day I am amazed at how much they are learning and retaining.
As soon as the first one was born, I started buying the French story books, French music CDs, "Teach your kids French" books, full blown DVD programs, iphone apps, and more! I spent at least $200 on all these tools. But they just weren't working for me. In early 2011, I realized that I needed a much more structured way to teach my kids French.
I researched how to teach kids a second language and started working on a program that would be simple and would fit into my busy schedule. I quickly realized that this program could help other parents like me. If I can teach a couple of very active boys French with this program, I am confident that any parent or caregiver can teach any child French!
As well as my "French for Kids" program, I also launched this website, languagemom.com, as a resource for parents who want to raise kids interested in other countries, cultures and languages.
