The Spot Color Immersion Method® appeals to young children while introducing language learning methods that speed language acquisition:

Online audio recording. Each French reader includes access to the online audio narration. Beginners can listen to the correct pronunciation of each story by a native French speaker without needing help from adults.

Strong visual cues. Color cues and illustrations make the meaning French text clear ("graphic-text correspondence"). Appeals to different learning styles. 

Simple sentences. French books for kids are often too long or complex for a beginner. With one line of French text per page, these 16-page first readers do not overwhelm a child who is beginning to learn French.

English translation. With no English on the page, children are encouraged to read in French. The English translation is included at the back of each reader for support.

Repetition. Patterned stories with a repetition structure are proven to help kids learn new vocabulary words and phrases.

Context. Each reader presents familiar themes that kids will enjoy with an unexpected humorous twist.

I have used these French books in after-school enrichment programs for language learners with the same success as I have had in my public-school classroom. Some of the titles of this set are: “Chic et Chouette!,” “La Fête de Fruits” and my favorite, “Bon Appetit!” The French set of books incorporates cultural words and phrases such as “Zut!,” Chouette!, Chic!, Génial!, Hourra! and many more. Both French and Spanish Sets have covered the cultural expressions in a fun and entertaining way that stimulates student repetition, participation and curiosity.
