French and Spanish for Children
Free Spanish and French Website for Children (mainly 7-14) full of listening resources, short stories and videos:
Grammar, verbs, vocabulary and activities with video clips and printable worksheets.
The stories try to be friendly and engaging, often focussed on particular verbs or a grammar point for repetitive but hopefully interesting, memorable practice. Many but not all of them are dog stories featuring Maggie and Billy, mother and son, or her single litter of puppies.
The videos are a mix of subtitled images + video, and great effort is made to make the voice clear and accessible. The majority of the videos have subtitles in English as well as Spanish or French to ensure understanding and assist independent practice.
The printable PDF worksheets provide follow-up work with questions and answers and translation practice which can be self-checked by returning to the corresponding video clip.
