What Our Parents Are Saying…

Ms. Hendricks

We immediately sat down with Hannah to watch it, and she was totally absorbed and repeated quite a few words with excellent pronunciation… these videos are great!

Craig T. Galle, Esq.

This product holds children's interest - my 2 year old and 8 year old both like it. They learn without paperwork and studying - just enjoying.

Mr. & Mrs. Goodstein

Marley repeats the words from "Sing and Learn" and points to her body parts with "Las partes del cuerpo". I am so happy there is a decent Spanish language product. I love the accompanying printable materials and I love the animation. The story is fun, cute and engaging. The songs are fun.

Mr. & Mrs. Ashkinazy

Our daughter Danielle loves the Professor Toto program. She wakes up in the morning and asks to watch it everyday. As she watches the program she repeats the words and sings to the songs. When we take Danielle on car trips, she asks to listen to the Professor Toto songs in the car.

Before we turn on the computer, Logan quickly puts in his request, "Toto, Toto!" From the moment the first notes of the opening song he is hooked. Very often he is too excited to sit down….. Even after viewing the videos many times, he still waits in anticipation for each segment.

Mr & Mrs. Meltzer

It is the first program that my daughter has requested in another language.

Mr. & Mrs. Hartman

The interplay in these videos between conversation and song is spellbinding.

Mrs. Benton

The songs are lively and do not condescend as most children's material seems to do. Both of my children ask for these materials over and over again.

Mrs. Bargeburhr

Lucas enjoys the transition with the bus arriving at the tunnel. He likes learning things in Spanish that he uses everyday - numbers, colors, animals, the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom. He LOVES the music!!!

Mrs. Cary

I would definitely recommend Professor Toto - it's a very comprehensive way to teach everyday vocabulary and grammar. Professor Toto helps to make French an everyday experience for my daughter.

Mrs. Pilblad

Lily enjoys watching the videos and listening to the songs. She considers it a treat so we watch or listen very often (together). I like the fact that the materials are fun and educational so Lily learns and has fun at the same time.

Mrs. Gabay

Full immersion in the language is the best way to learn! The only way to learn a language at a young age is to completely immerse the child in that language. Alexander loves the songs. It is very well done.

Heidi Spietz

I was privileged to field test the products … the short spurt lessons follow the best practices for second language acquisition…
