By encouraging your student or child to read French books for kids or listening to French audio books, you will help them in their acquisition of a second language. Give your children the benefits of bilingualism!

If the kids in your life speak French, or are learning the language, take a look at the French books for kids available here.

Here is some other interesting information about the French language that you can share with them...

Where is it spoken? French is the official language of France, and it is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. There are about 300 million French speakers worldwide. It has official status in 32 countries, second only to English.

How Many People Speak French in the US? According to recent US Census data, there are about 1.3 million French speakers in the US (not including French Creole, which is counted separately). There are large French speaking populations in New York, Louisiana, Washington DC, Massachusetts, Texas and California.

Interesting Facts About French

There are many food-related idioms in French. One example is "En faire tout un fromage," which translates to "make a whole cheese of it." This saying is used to when a person is making a bigger deal of something than it deserves. In English, its equivalent is "making a mountain out of a molehill."

French didnít become widely used in France until after the French Revolution in the late 1700s.

"Salut" can be used as both a casual hello or good-bye.
