The best way to introduce a language! Songs are specifically chosen to learn a simple selection of vocabulary and sentences: Greetings, Numbers, Colors, Animals and Actions.
Children will recognize American songs sung in French/Spanish, they will use maracas and tambourines to participate in the guitar sing along. Puppets will illustrate the lyrics of the songs and we will blow bubbles to the beat!
Children will hear and feel the rhythm of the language. Explanations in English will be given to learn all the tricks to acquire a second language.
This show is always full of movement, dance and surprises!
