Online French & Spanish
French & Spanish for children
A GREEN MOUSE is providing free online French and Spanish listening resources for children for ipads, tablets, computers, mobile devices and whiteboards.
The focus is on listening practice. Valuable subtitles are usually included to reinforce learning. The resources are not restricted by any particular test, but most of the vocabulary needed for Key Stage 3 and Common Entrance will be covered in due course. The aim is to put language into an interesting context with ‘stories’ and engaging pictures to help children remember the words.
The resources are especially suitable for children from about the age of 7 to 13, depending upon interest, ability and exposure to French elsewhere. Some of the resources are quite challenging and could be helpful to older students, e.g. French Food & Drink or Spanish Food & Drink. Others are also suitable for children under 7, especially the songs:
Below are examples of some of the language resources:
