Dino Lingo

I was given the opportunity to try out Dino Lingo from Influenster in the Mom VoxBox to review and give my honest opinions. 
This is a fun way for you kids to learn a new language. There are so many to choose from the sample languages my son was able to try were the Spanish, Italian and Chinese. Although there are over 20 languages to choose from. 

Per Dino Lingo's Web site
"Dino Lingo for Kids is a language set where cartoon dinosaurs introduce the most common 200 words of a target language. This language set consists of 5 DVDs, each DVD focused on specific learning topics. Colors, numbers, family, animals, food, fruit and vegetables, vehicles, body parts, clothes, nature and verbs and actions After watching our videos several times, most small children can easily name everyday objects and understand basic phrases such as "Hello", "What is this?" in their target language. Dino Lingo is ideal for fostering a toddler's cognitive development and has won the 'Influential Parents Award' in 2010 and 2011 in education category. Dino Lingo language learning programs are most effective for children up to 7 years of age and anybody interested in learning the basics of a new language. "

He preferred the Spanish because he said that is the one he wanted to know more of. He has learned some in school, but wanted to get better. We had fun doing it together. The words were easy to figure out since the images were easy to understand. The music was cute and was fun to listen to. 
I did notice that there was no translation during the video which makes it less confusing when learning words.  
When it comes to the phrases you get an idea of what the phrase is meant to say, but you can't be sure.  That is the only thing that I noticed that could be confusing. 

Thank you to Dino Lingo and Influenster for giving my child the chance to experience new languages.
