Whistlefritz Cha,Cha,Cha French Learning Songs CD Review




Disclaimer:  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.


If you remember a couple of months ago mommy and I decided that I was going to learn a new language. We decided that we were going to learn the language of love, or French as most people know it as. It's been told that learning a second language is beneficial and that little ones learn languages a lot faster and easier than older kids. I must say that might just be true. While I may not be able to actually speak the language, I can't really speak English much either, I do know quite a few French words. They actually make sense to me and I can actually follow simple directions in French as well. 

When mommy and I were sent Whistlefritz's Cha,Cha,Cha French Learning Songs CD we couldn't wait to play it. After all what's better than speaking the language? Did you say singing? You bet it is!



Parlez-vous cha, cha, cha?  From samba and merengue to rumba and reggae, irresistible world music rhythms add an exciting twist to learning French with this festive 15-song collection from Whistlefritz, the award-winning producers of language immersion CDs and DVDs for children. Performed by acclaimed singer Lynn Véronneau and set to a diverse array of Latin and Caribbean rhythms by versatile bandleader and composer Didier Prossaird, Cha, Cha, Cha will get children on their feet singing and dancing along to playful arrangements of beloved traditional songs (BingoSur le Pont D'Avignon, Les Éléphants, Tombe La Pluie), as well as lively originals that teach about numbers, the days of the week, the months, the seasons, and more. This fun collection makes learning to speak French as easy and natural as un, deuxtrois. A song-by song translation guide is included as an easy reference guide for parents and teachers.

 
$14.99 - Recommended age: 2y+
Parlez-vous Français? Whistlefritz makes it so easy to learn the language. The CD comes with 15 very upbeat French songs ranging from rhumba to reggae, samba and meringue. All done to have you dancing while learning. The great thing about is that it also comes with a really nice English translation booklet in the jewel case, for those who may not know any French at all. What better way to learn than the basics. B-I-N-G-O, The Numbers song (Les Nombres) is probably my favorite along with On The Bridge of Avignon (Sur Le Pont D'avignon). Mommy actually knew On the Bridge of Avignon and sang along, although not quite as nice as the CD. 

Each song teaches something in particular. The Numbers Song teaches the numbers in French. On the Bridge on Avignon teaches about people such as police officers (les policiers), musicians (les musiciens) etc. Now mommy and I can call these people by their correct French name and you will too. You can download a copy of your own booklet here and learn right along with me. 

Now these are the tracks available and you can take a listen to samples of the songs here.


  1. Bingo
  2. Tous Lew Mois (All the Months)
  3. Promenons Nous Dans Le Bois (Let’s Walk Through the Woods)
  4. Les Élephants (The Elephants)
  5. Les Nombres (The Numbers)
  6. La Marchade De Fruits (The Fruit Vendor)
  7. Sur Le Pont D’avignon (On the Bridge of Avignon)
  8. Les Voyelles (The Vowels)
  9. Tapent, Tapent Petiites Mains (Clap, Clap Little Hands)
  10. Savez-vous Planter Les Choux (Do You Know How to Plant Cabbage)
  11. Les Saisons (The Seasons)
  12. Les Jours De La Semaine (The Days of the Week)
  13. Tombre La Pluie (It’s Raining)
  14. Cache-Cache (Hide and Seek)
  15. Cinq Citrouilles (Five Pumpkins)
Whistlefritz also sent me their Spanish for Kids Adentro y Afuera (Inside and Out) which mommy and I plan on reviewing as well. Keep an eye out for it. Spanish comes a very close second for me but I'm so in love with French.  You can take a look at all their other products right here

There are even tips for parents wanting to help their children with language immersion. How awesome is Whistlefritz?! They are so great that they've also won quite a few awards. You're certainly getting an award winning product! I definitely recommend Whistlefritz and their Cha,Cha,Cha CD certainly gets my Two Tiny Thumbs Up!
Awards:  Winner of a National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) GOLD Award. Winner of a Mom's Choice GOLD Award. Named one of the Best 10 Audio-Visual programs of 2012 by Dr. Toy. Winner of The National Parenting Center's 2012 Seal of Approval. Recommended by the Parents’ Choice Foundation.

  3. Madison, I think it is great you're learning a new language! French is a beautiful language...when I was in school I learned Spanish. Sometimes I wish I had taken French classes instead.

  5. I know some French--but then I did not start until I was in High School I think--I had a lot of trouble!! Thos would have made it a lot simpler for me even then. In the world we now live in it is almost imperative for people to learn other languages-and it really is so much easier to learn when you are young!!

  7. This sounds like a great program! My boys have picked up a little Portuguese from their grandparents who speak it around them, but I like this idea a whole lot better!

  10. I never thought of learning a new language through music, but definitely sounds fun and judging from how much my girls love music and signing, too, think this would be an excellent way to leaner a new language. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  11. I am homeschooling and was curious as to what I could get to teach my son a second language. I will check this out.

  12. What a fun way to learn French. I wish we could have done something like this when I was taking French in high school. I could never figure out how to pronounce words correctly!

  13. I just couldn't love it more. The repetition of it being in song form would really make a difference. I love this!

  15. I took 4 years me french in high School/college. I usedto be able to write, read, and translate pretty well but i've never been able to speak it, I have a horrible accent. This sounds like a fun way to teach my son!

  16. This sounds like a wonderful program. I took 3 years of French in school. I'd love for my girls to learn it as well!

  17. What a fun way for the kids to learn a new language! My kids would love this, music is an amazing way to introduce learning . Love this

  18. That is a great product, I have been looking for CDs like this. When my husband and I went to Paris, we used a CD that used songs to teach French. It helped us so much. I am glad they have something like this for kids! I think we would all benefit from using it :)

  19. What a fun program!! My daughter and I are about to start learning Spanish together! I'm so excited!

  20. The ability to speak another language is such a wonderful skill to have. I would think listening to these fun songs, you will know French in no time!

    ReplyDelete
  21. In today's world speaking several different languages is almost a must do. Spanish and French is two great languages and you are at a great age to start.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Whistlefritz's Cha,Cha,Cha French Learning Songs CD sound awesome. I live in Southwest Florida and a lot of my friends are bilingual. I can see children at a very young age picking up both English & Spanish very well. I would love to learn another language and have always heard its easier as a child. Putting the language into a song must make it more manageable. Awesome you are starting your children out so young with something so beneficial.

  23. This is so great! I absolutely love this and I know from personal experience that learning multiple languages at this age is much better. Toddlers are like sponges they soak everything up quickly and remember it. My little girl is the same way, she learned English of course and my mom taught her Spanish and I teach her Italian since my dad's side of the family doesn't speak anything but Italian. So now she says words and sentences in all three languages. So hopefully we can fit French in there as well. Madison will be bilingual before you know it(:

  24. I'd love to get my hands on this! Really perfect for me, although I'm older, but I think this would be a great way to learn a new language.

  25. Aw this sounds lovely what a great way to teach just a bit of another language - I wish I had managed to learn more. x
