My mom is starting a language program at the house for the little kids. She saw how I was doing in French and Spanish and decided it was a prime time to teach the little kids another language also. How did you French reading guys and gal learn to read French? she's settled on a couple of books and outlined a program for them that will probably work but the reading part really has us stumped. We cant teach them to speak French until we know how to say the words ourselves. Simple transliteration for the words in the books wont work, we need to learn how to read French before we start. I need a program that will teach you to READ French. Not write, not spell, not conjugate or analyze or any of that stuff. Just simply somehin Something like Hooked on Phonics for French? So, do you remember the series or system that taught you to read? Do you know where I could get a copy of that series online? I've searched and searched and I come up with nothing...Maybe I'm searching the wrong terms but it seems like the entire Internet is determined to teach children vocab and songs in foreign language but not reading, which is really weird to me, but thats beside the point. Whats a series/system/program--not a computer program--that teaches French literacy/phonics and where can I get it online? P.S. Please dont say something as simple as "in school" A mod can lock this topic as soon as I get a couple of good responses.
