Bilingual Language Program for Children


1 Amber October 13, 2014 at 12:59 pm

This is so great! I’d have a hard time choosing between Spanish, French, and German, but I think I’ll go with German. πŸ™‚

2 Kristin Kimble October 13, 2014 at 1:06 pm

Such a brilliant idea! I’d go with German, because I would so like to bring my mother tongue closer to our daughter!

3 Rocio Romero October 13, 2014 at 1:20 pm

I would pick Spanish!

4 Fernanda October 13, 2014 at 2:46 pm

I would love Portuguese to help my kids with their second language

5 Fernanda October 13, 2014 at 2:49 pm

I think pronunciation is one of the greatest methods to teach a language

6 Stacy October 13, 2014 at 6:22 pm

I would pick Spanish!

7 Stacy October 13, 2014 at 6:24 pm

I think the full immersion approach is key. I thought that using “motherese” (high-pitched voices from the actors) was an interesting part of their method. Also, I had never seen any research about children preferring animation over real-life footage, but that seemed true for kids when they were younger (my seven-year-old still prefers animation).

Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

8 Lara October 13, 2014 at 6:43 pm

I will chose Russian language for my two little ones. It is so hard to keep our heritage language when the kids don’t have favorite characters who speak Russian. We need this program so much!

9 Pia Champness October 13, 2014 at 7:04 pm

I would pick Finnish. I’m doing my best to speak Finnish to my children. I think this would help me focus again.

10 Renata October 13, 2014 at 10:46 pm

I would pick Polish.

11 Renata October 13, 2014 at 10:48 pm

Animism- one of the 10 Dino Lingo Methods

12 Dani October 13, 2014 at 10:48 pm

I pick French for my kids (and me)

13 kristen mcclary October 14, 2014 at 12:20 am

i would choose japanese just because there are a lot of japenese people that visit here and if my kids earned it when they got older they would have no problem finding a job its a huge essential here in hawaii

14 Jacquelyn Kriegsch October 14, 2014 at 12:40 am

Spanish, please! πŸ™‚

15 Elena October 14, 2014 at 1:23 am

Mandarin? German? (I’m clearly not good with decisions… )
The programme seems really good and fun πŸ™‚

16 Sandra October 14, 2014 at 1:29 am

I would pick Czech, my husband is Czech and is difficult to find online learning tools for our baby to hear Czech when he’s at work.

17 Marjaana October 14, 2014 at 1:37 am

Finnish πŸ™‚ or Italian – trying to make our daughter learn both languages

18 Seonaid October 14, 2014 at 2:03 am

I’d pick French πŸ™‚

19 Nicole Papa October 14, 2014 at 4:34 am

I like the Dino lingual method for its contextual variations. That at least four different contexts are used to model the vocabulary is great. I would choose Italian as the language I would use/need.

20 Dura Eszter October 14, 2014 at 4:40 am

We would love German! πŸ™‚

21 Elizabeth October 14, 2014 at 6:14 am

Russian would be my language of choice. πŸ™‚

22 Elizabeth October 14, 2014 at 6:16 am

I really appreciate the fact that DinoLingo has subtitles in both alphabets (English & the language you’re learning). Many language programs I’ve looked into only use the English alphabet.

23 valerie October 14, 2014 at 7:20 am

Love to win this for working on French with my kids at home!
They are finally into learning it and making small steps..this would be awesome to add!

24 NAGB October 14, 2014 at 7:39 am

I would love the Spanish program!

25 debbie October 14, 2014 at 9:05 am

So many wonderful choices, but if could only pick one I would love to try the Spanish program (Italian is 2nd choice) πŸ™‚

26 Aleksandra October 14, 2014 at 12:55 pm

I would love the Polish program!

27 Aleksandra October 14, 2014 at 12:57 pm

I think the full immersion method to learning a language is very important to learning a foreign language.

28 Dominika October 14, 2014 at 12:57 pm

I would choose Polish as this is the minority language (my mother tongue) that my English speaking partner and I are trying to teach our little girl.

29 Dominika October 14, 2014 at 1:01 pm

I think it is important to use a variety of methods and adapt them as your child’s needs change. However, I’d say the full immersions seems to be the most effective.

30 Kristin October 14, 2014 at 5:30 pm

I would pick Spanish. My husband’s mother tongue is Spanish so I want my kids to be able to feel close with both sides of their family, not just the English speakers.

31 Kristin October 14, 2014 at 5:33 pm

For the methods I think full immersion is the best way to learn. Sort of like being thrown in the water to learn to sink or swim.

32 Marnie October 14, 2014 at 5:39 pm

Spanish, por favor!

33 Marnie October 14, 2014 at 5:42 pm

9 – Subtitles in Both Foreign Characters and English Alphabet
I love the literacy connection that this can provide. Many adults learning alongside their children are more visual learners and less auditory initially.

34 Tatiana October 15, 2014 at 1:16 am

Spanish would be awesome

35 Jessica Botero October 15, 2014 at 9:07 am

Spanish for my little one!

36 Chris October 15, 2014 at 5:14 pm

I would love to win the German program.

37 Chris October 15, 2014 at 5:17 pm

All the methods are important.

I like point/method 2 contextual variation

38 Bryn October 16, 2014 at 2:04 am

I would pick the Arabic set… we speak Indonesian at home but my husband uses Arabic quite a bit for work. Our 2.5 year old daughter has recently decided that she likes the look of Arabic letters and the sound of the language… one of her favourite things to do with Dad at the moment is read Arabic Tintin together!

39 Bryn October 16, 2014 at 2:08 am

I love that they use full immersion… contextual variation is also something that I probably wouldn’t have thought of, but based on my daughter’s reaction to the free sample lesson seems to be a really great way of mixing repetition with new images. The use of ‘motherese’ is really interesting… also not something I would’ve thought of!

40 Mary October 16, 2014 at 6:17 pm

I would pick either Russian or German. Russian because that’s my native language and German because we are moving to Germany really soon and nobody in the family speaks it.

41 Mary October 16, 2014 at 6:18 pm

Optimum Combination of 3D/2D Animation I think would work best for younger kids.

42 Tatiana Asakura October 17, 2014 at 1:04 am

I would give a try to Dutch

43 Vonnie October 17, 2014 at 8:01 pm

I would choose French. Merci!

44 Vonnie October 17, 2014 at 8:06 pm

I like the contextual variation method overall.

45 Rachel October 19, 2014 at 6:31 am

I would choose German because that is is our main foreign language.

46 Rachel October 19, 2014 at 6:32 am

I like the gradual interval recall. We don’t review enough what we learn. This would help us be consistent, sticking with it until it is overlearned.

47 Alisa October 20, 2014 at 3:02 am

I would choose English for my child. Thanks!

48 Dolinda October 22, 2014 at 7:08 pm

I would choose Dutch. My daughter speaks French pretty well already but no Dutch yet (even though that is my native tongue…).

49 Dolinda October 22, 2014 at 7:12 pm

I think the full immersion is really key. I’m actually no so sure about the high pitches female voices….I know it annoys me to no end and I have rarely spoken like that to my daughter. In fact, when real life people talk to her like that she looks at them wondering why they talk like that. I do like all the other methods mentioned.

50 Jo-anne October 22, 2014 at 7:35 pm

I would choose Chinese thanks

51 Jo-anne October 22, 2014 at 7:40 pm

I like that they have native speakers for Pronunciation. When you are a non native speaker you need your kids to hear correct pronunciation.

52 Olivia October 25, 2014 at 2:54 am

I would choose Spanish.

53 Gloria October 26, 2014 at 11:36 am

I’d choose Irish/English!
Our son was born and raised (his first year) in Cork, so it’d be the perfect way for him to keep listening to this languages, esp. Irish πŸ™‚

54 Tami October 26, 2014 at 8:55 pm

I would choose Spanish.

55 Carina October 26, 2014 at 9:05 pm


56 Nadine October 26, 2014 at 9:08 pm

I would choose French!

57 Nadine October 26, 2014 at 9:09 pm

Gradual Interval Recall is the method I believe is most important.

58 Jenny Kidder October 26, 2014 at 11:25 pm

i would pick French

59 Jenny Kidder October 26, 2014 at 11:27 pm

Full immersion is key!! The brain grows best with maximum stimulation
