Our opinion of Slangman's World . . .
I think Slangman's World will be a beneficial tool in teaching Brea new languages. In today's world knowing other languages definitely gives you an advantage. At the same time learning new languages can be difficult for children so finding new and interesting ways to teach them is essential. Slangman's World will definitely be included in teaching Brea languages.
Brea is 22 months old and the 5 minute episodes are perfect for her. She is a very active child and does not sit still for long. Very few shows hold her attention for longer than 5 minutes. Brea enjoys dancing to the music in Slangman's World and jumps around the living room while "Pronto" is playing.
I would like to state that I think this will be more useful for Brea in a few months. I definitely plan on keeping it around because I think it will only grow in educational value as she gets older!
