Little Pim, the Number One Language Learning System for Young Children, Partners with VTech to Introduce Foreign Languages to Children Around the Globe
New York – Little Pim®, the award-winning foreign language-learning program for young children, is excited to announce a partnership with VTech (http://www.vtechkids.com), a world leader in age-appropriate and developmental stage-based electronic learning products for children. The Little Pim foreign language video series for preschoolers will be available for the InnoTab Learning Tablet range starting December 1 in VTech's Learning Lodge™ app store, home to more than 600 titles of educator-approved downloadable content and curriculum.
"We are delighted to be able to offer Little Pim on VTech devices," said Julia Pimsleur Levine, CEO and Founder of Little Pim. "Our videos make language acquisition a fun and interactive experience, and partnering with VTech allows even more kids to begin learning a new language at the age they learn best. Studies show that children can learn new languages with greatest ease up until age six and then it gets harder to take in the new sounds, vocabulary and have a good accent. We want to get kids started when the learning is easy and fun, and then it will pay off for a lifetime."
"We are excited to partner with Little Pim and expand the educational offerings of our Learning Lodge with their language learning videos," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Learning a new language has many benefits and can give children a great advantage in this global world. We are always looking for ways to bolster our learning content and think this partnership is a great opportunity."
The Little Pim videos help kids learn 360 words and phrases in a second language. The videos will be offered in English, Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Italian and German. They will be available starting in December for US$4.99 each.
Little Pim makes learning a foreign language easy and accessible to all kids. Their apps, videos, books, flashcards, and CDs feature Little Pim an animated panda bear that keeps kids entertained while inspiring in them a lifelong love of language and learning. Their unique Entertainment Immersion Method® provides total immersion in the language. The method engages a child's love of play watching real kids and animation. The program is the brainchild of Julia Pimsleur Levine, the daughter of Dr. Paul Pimsleur, creator of the Pimsleur Method, the popular language-learning program for adults. She was inspired to create Little Pim for her own children, after growing up bilingual in French and English.
