Kids French Lesson: Baking a cake

Learning a language is best through real-life situations. Teach your children French with this recipe!

How to introduce a new language to your child

The biggest hurdle many parents have when trying to introduce a new language to their children is knowing the daily vocabulary and expressions. They get all tied up in knots thinking about conjugating verbs and structuring a sentence.

But how do we learn our first language? It is by taking part in real-life situations with other real people.

For children to learn French (or any language!) it is important for them to be able to relate to the subjects and the vocabulary. Seeing real people using the language and being exposed to quality vocabulary is key to recall and progress.

In the Mini Life series accessible from the Mini Ville online map-tool, we go on adventures with Sophie and her family. The topics are relatable, useful and expose children to a rich set of vocabulary objectives; as close as you can get to spending time with a French family. You can then use those new words and expressions at home supported by the related resources.

In this video, we make a real chocolate cake!

For more info on teaching your little one French have a look at our tools and resources or get in touch for the bilingual guide that goes with this video.
