Glen Echo, MD (August 9, 2007) – Glen Echo, Maryland-based WHISTLEFRITZ, producer of early learning Spanish language DVDs, today announced the release of two new DVDs in its Spanish for Beginners series. The series is designed to give young children a language advantage in an ever-shrinking global society, and to teach these skills early when the brain is most receptive to learning a new language. Whistlefritz DVDs are available for immediate purchase from www.whistlefritz.com and www.amazon.com.
LOS ANIMALES features the antics of a motley group of animals at play, and includes beloved Spanish-language folksongs, Los Pollitos and Vengan a Ver Mi Granja. VAMOS A JUGAR gives a child’s-eye view of day-to-day activities, and teaches the naming of numbers, clothing, body parts and more. Songs include Spanish folksong, Los Ninos Cuando Bailan, and new twists on favorite children’s songs Cabeza, Hombros and Ojos, Orejas. Both DVDs feature a charming teacher, Maria, her playful puppet pals, and the lively, singing and dancing Whistlefritz kids!
Whistlefritz was created out of CEO and Founder Heidi Stock’s desire to enrich the lives of children through the discovery of a second language. “As a mother of young children who are learning Spanish as a second language, I founded Whistlefritz because I wanted to create high-quality Spanish immersion DVDs to help parents and educators bring the gift of language to their kids,” said Stock. “Children are most receptive to learning a second language early in life as their cognitive and language abilities are naturally evolving. Whistlefritz DVDs are a fun and engaging way to seize this critical language opportunity using proven language immersion methods to inspire children.”
About the Product
Whistlefritz’s Spanish immersion DVDs are tailored for young children and do not require any prior knowledge of Spanish. Children and adults learn intuitively and naturally by connecting the language to the playful imagery and songs in the videos. A helpful translation guide is included with all DVDs.
Headquartered in Glen Echo, Maryland on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., Whistlefritz was founded in 2006 by a mom with a passion for teaching language to children when their cognitive skills are most receptive to it – early childhood. With the knowledge that this language “window of opportunity” begins as early as the toddler years, Whistlefritz’s founding mom developed a Spanish language program for her own children. The program grew into Whistlefritz, a young company on a mission to create entertaining Spanish DVDs for parents (and teachers) who want to open up the language window of opportunity for children.
