I like that this program works for my pre-schooler. All the materials make learning an enjoyable experience
for her. She really likes the CD and the puppet. I like the 12 months of free online access. I recommend

Petralingua - exactly what we needed.
„PetraLingua® Online Course Spanish“
We both like that the online course uses text, audio, video, plus interactive exercises. The diversity makes everything more interesting. I recommend it. „PetraLingua® Online Course French“
Perfetto per bambini perché facile e divertente!
„PetraLingua® DVDs English“
My grandson has been interested in Russian language You Tube videos. He has learned a lot this way, but it
was time for a more structured approach if he was to continue to make progress. I like the way the video
presents both the oral and written word so he can learn to read and speak at the same time. It is presented in
a way that a young child can take in the information. This is a hit at our house.
„PetraLingua® DVDs Russian“
Item was as described and being enjoyed by all!!

How do you teach your child Spanish if you are not bilingual yourself? Raising bilingual children is a hot topic in the news nowadays. More and more Latino families are recognizing the value of raising their kids to speak both English and Spanish. But what happens if you are English dominant and don’t speak the language at home? What if you don’t have the luxury of sending your child to a dual language immersion school because there’s either not one in your area, or you didn’t win the “admission lottery?”
"... PetraLingua is an online language course for kids ages three to 12. The courses cover the curriculum of
the first two to three years of foreign language learning at schools, and are an great choice for
homeschoolers, as well as for classroom use. The program works on Windows, MAC, iPad, iPhone, as well as on
Android tablets and phones.
But what I also love about the site is that it is a multilingual teaching platform. PetraLingua currently offers courses on Spanish, as well as English, Chinese, Russian, German, and French. So if your children are learning more than one language, they could study all of them! (AND if your child is learning English, you could choose that option and change the operating language to Spanish or another language. A great option for ESL students!). ..."
"Am descoperit recent site-ul PetraLingua, care ofera cursuri introductive de limbi straine pentru copii
Sunt lectii interactive si mie mi s-au parut reusite. Au cate o lectie gratuita pentru fiecare din limbile oferite.
Merita aruncat o privire pe lectia gratuita, si de ce nu, folosita. Pentru Engleza, e gratuita lectia What's for Breakfast.
Pentru cei care vor sa aiba access la toate lectiile oferite in cadrul unei limbi, sunt mai multe variante de plata, sumele cerute nu mi se pare foarte mari."
"... Getting children started in language learning can be difficult sometimes. We want to make language
learning fun for them but may not be sure what to do. This is where Petra Lingua's language learning programs
for children can help.
After each of the vocabulary videos, there are a bunch of fun games that your children can play to practice what they learned. The games really help children remember the words and are easy to do. It makes a big difference for children to have the opportunity to practice their vocabulary! ..."
"... My two eldest girls have been playing with PetraLingua's lessons and learning some basic French. We have
a gorgeous friend who comes from France, so my kids are super excited about showing off their new words they
have learned to her. The lessons instantly grabbed Miss 4 and 5's attention as there are so many interesting
things happening and the excitement of seeing what is coming next! It is a bright, colourful and cheerful
program which makes it an enjoyable learning experience for kids!
The PetraLingua website is incredibly easy for kids to navigate and myself! Miss 4 and 5 had no trouble finding their way around the site from lesson to lesson. All lessons are well supported with visual graphics/pictures and audio prompts to help children follow the pathway through their lessons. ..."
"... What makes Petra Lingua another great way to expose children to a foreign language is that it reinforces
a lot of the vocabulary and phrases you probably use with your children everyday. In other words, in addition
to being a great site for the monolingual child learning another language, it can also be a resource for the
bilingual child to continue to reinforce the minority language.
That being said, one reason I enjoyed using the online language program was because I was able to reinforce words and phrases in Spanish to my daughter (as I mentioned earlier), but I was also able to expose her to French, the third language we are teaching her and one I do not speak. In addition to being a program for kids, Petra Lingua encourages adults to learn another language through their online site. ..."
"Today's children need to learn more than ABCs and 123s to thrive as future leaders - they should also learn
a foreign language, according to experts. Learning languages helps increase listening ability, memory,
creativity and critical thinking - all of which are thinking processes that increase learning in general.
Learning languages should be fun. When presented in an interesting and attractive way, it is an enjoyable learning activity. And because a child's first learning successes are often achieved with little or no noticeable effort, this builds the child's self-confidence and their desire to learn continues. ..."
