"Whistlefritz hits the mark again with their newest release, The French Collection. This educational product struck testers as being unlike anything else in its category, and as a result, it leaves "competitors" in the dust. The easy to use system not only introduces young children to the French language but continues to teach them how to actually speak the language. Everything is well thought out, well scripted and very well produced. Parents told us that they would use the same discs for years as their children perfected their knowledge and love of learning a new language. Several testers who had tried other language programs told us that the instructions and ease of use here are incomparable. It's not all seriousness and education, there is a lot of fun and lightheartedness throughout the set. Your child will not only be encouraged to learn the French language, but they will be entertained with song and dance as well. Following the characters, Fritzi and Marie will also be fun for your child and help them feel connected to the videos. With 6 discs and the years of use you can expect to get out of The French Collection, testers said that they would actually pay more for a teaching tool of this quality, noting that an adult system of this level could easily cost hundreds of dollars. For parents who are interested in introducing a foreign language to their children, this is the perfect place to start."
