Singing songs is a fun way of helping children to develop an enthusiasm for French. Of the 20 songs in J'aime Chanter! 17 are set to familiar tunes, so you and the children can concentrate on the words without having to learn new tunes. There are also 3 easy-to-learn raps.

The CD contains recordings of all the songs, sung by native French speakers, as well as music tracks to enable "karaoke" performances. The accompanying book contains words to all the songs, together with English translations as well as over 60 attractive, photocopiable flashcards and colouring sheets to help the children understand the content of the songs.

The songs introduce and reinforce vocabulary for:
  • greetings
  • seasons & weather
  • the alphabet
  • parts of the body
  • asking names
  • clothes
  • numbers to 20
  • at a picnic
  • asking age
  • food
  • days of the week
  • sports
  • months of the year
  • in the park
  • colours
  • at the beach
  • family
  • Father Christmas
  • animals & pets
