We are excited to share with you Hablah blah blah’s new collection of multilingual music because their first CD in Spanish was the very first album we reviewed when we launched in 2009! Not only that, but Amy Conroy, the company’s founder, has shared with SpanglishBaby many stories of her family’s immersion trips to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico.
After almost a five year hiatus, Habla blah blah is back, but with a new multilingual and immersive-style concept that will not only get our niños singing along and dancing, but will also expose them to familiar words and phrases in English, French and Spanish! These catchy tunes feature songs with themes that appeal to a child’s everyday life and their curiosity of the world around them. El Baño, Los Grandes Elefantes and Escondidos are a few of the songs you’ll find in these CD’s that are reminiscent of songs we might have heard as kids, but with a modern twist.
The songs are the same across all five albums, the only thing that changes is that the voices and lyrics are in a different language. First, kids can listen to the songs in their native or preferred language and then switch to the album with the target language. The idea behind this method is that when your kids switch to the album in the target language their brain will start making the connections before they even read the translations. You can read more about the music and how it works on their website.
We’re giving away one complete set of the 5 Habla blah blah CD’s featured above to one lucky winner! All you have to do is leave us a comment letting us know what language(s) you’d like your niños to learn. Then, enter the rafflecopter below.
