I couldn't believe how fast my children and myself for that matter started to pick up a new language! They started repeating the new words just seconds after hearing and seeing them on screen. The DinoLingo videos are fun and entertaining, kids never even realize they are "learning". The DinoLingo program is a great addition to any child's education.

I loved the Dino Lingo set, in the Italian language. My daughter loved it, the images kept her locked and loaded. She repeated words out loud while watching it and now she loves to show off her new language skills, every time she gets an opportunity to speak Italian she will. Even my child's teacher is impressed. Its a great way for anyone to learn a language, I myself picked up a few things from watching. I look forward to introducing and mastering the sets of other languages in the future with Dino Lingo with my daughter.

I love your dvd programs. My daughter is going on 2 and the spanish dvd is so entertaining for her. Ive noticed her speaking a little in spanish and hope that ahe picks it up as a second language. My oldest is 7 and learned from dino lingo so well that she wants to take on another language. Thank you for the FUN, EASY way to learn spanish.
Learning with Dino Lingo is not only fun but enjoyable for my son and since it's cartoon characters it helps my child relate and learn. He loves Dinosaurs so he is excited every time we put in the DVD, and is eager to learn some new words.He was so excited to tell me all the words he learned the first time he watched it and share the words with friends from school. It helps create a wonderful, fun bonding experience with my son all while learning a new language. There are so many different languages to choose from that will teach your child a new language.
I found the lessons from Dino Lingo heart warming and engaging. My kids loved the dinosaurs and were so proud of the words they learned. The animation was very cute and everything was easy to follow. I could easily see my kids staying engaged while learning a new language. This is a terrific program for toddlers, preschoolers, and even school aged children. If anything it will expose them to a new language that they can build upon.
My toddler loves his 'Dino Movie' and requests it on a daily basis; sometimes multiple times a day.The dinosaurs and other fun characters are animated and engaging, keeping my son glued to his TV. Sure enough he started walking around the house in no time saying things like "hola!" and "pez" as he pointed to the fish bowl! I almost couldn't believe how quickly he caught on to some of the words and phrases! Now that were a few months in; Reece is repeating most if not all of the simple words and phrases...
A very happy mom
Testimonials from Amazon
My 4 year old loved this!
My husband's family is Italian and I thought it would be really neat to teach our daughter some Italian. I watched the video with her and we both really enjoyed it. She was very interested to watch the animated cartoon characters and the learning was easy to follow. I think shes the perfect age for getting the most out of this video. Younger children might not learn as much so quickly, but im sure they would still enjoy watching the video. I would definitely recommend this as a tool for teaching your child simple words and phrases in Italian.

Great for young children!
My kids are 1/2 Korean, ages 4 and 2 1/2. Although their grandmother is with them during the day and speaks to them in Korean, it's been hard to get them interested in speaking the Korean language themselves. We currently have a private Korean tutor who comes for one hour twice a week, but purchased Dino Lingo to supplement their language classes during the week. As an adult, the structure of the videos seem odd at first. However, after a few times watching the DVD's, I realized the structure is to keep the children entertained and interested. It really does keep their attention and my children love to repeat the Korean words as it plays.

Great set! My son loves it!
I am a Turk and my wife is American. Since my son is spending more time with my wife when I am at work, I don't get as much time to practice Turkish with my 3 year old. So I decided to buy this when I heard about it from a friend of mine. Let me tell you, this really works! My kid loves it (duhh! what 3 year old wouldn't like dinosaurs!) and started to pick up lots of words. I like how this is laid out as a fun activity than some sort of course/lecture. Highly recommend it!

Dino Lingo Spanish learning DVDs are great! My kids love them.
I researched a lot before purchasing these dvds. I bought both Japanese and Spanish Language DVDs for kids. They are both excellent. I am very pleased with our purchase and would recommend them to everyone. The kids learn Spanish without realizing it. They love to repeat the different phrases. Great customer service. I called to ask questions and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you!

DINO LINGO KOREAN
My wife is a Korean-American and we speak English at home. I purchased Dino Lingo Korean DVDs few weeks before we went to Korea as a family. I wanted my 2,5 year old daughter to learn some Korean so she could impress our relatives living there. I am glad I did it, as soon as DVDs arrived, she started watching them all the time, she loved the animations, bit by bit she started repeating the words and phrases, and she would look at the flash cards and tell us the name of the objects. When we went to Korea, all our relatives seemed so happy how she could pronounce those words perfect. They would point to her nose and she would say "nose" in Korean, and head, hair, hat, etc... and everybody would laugh. Mission accomplished. I would recommend these DVDs to anyone who wants to teach beginner level to their kids. Now we're back from Korea and she picked up a lot over there, we need more advanced levels. I am happy with my purchase and I recommend.

Cute and Keeps Child's Attention
I watched a lesson with my 3 year old son and it was a little over 20 minutes long. My son HATES watching TV. He would rather be up running around and playing. However, he sat through the ENTIRE lesson and seemed to absolutely LOVE it! He counted along with the dinosaurs and recognized some animals, and learned a new word or two! I had my doubts before we watched the lesson, but as I watched it with him, I realized how educational it was. The characters do silly things to keep the child's attention, which I even chuckled at! Very cute and educational!

If you want your Kids to learn another language, this is the program for you!
At first, I was a little skeptical of trying the program because my daughter is a little young. She's going to be 3 in September, and already, she's picked up on words and uses them. You can hear her when she plays with her toys pointing to her stuffed kitty and saying gatto.I give it 5 starts because it is not only a learning program, but fun for the kids as well!

Excellent Language Learning DVD My kid is learning japanese and having fun!
These Japanese kids DVDs are great. They come with flash cards and my kids both love them. The characters are very creative and cute. My kids have learned several Japanese phrases. I am definately going to check out other languages. I purchased the Spanish DVD language set as well.

I have been looking for a program to teach my children polish. I have tried tons. My kids ages 3 and 5, love these videos. They watch one everyday. It has only been about a month,but they already know so much. My inlaws who speak polish said they are learning so fast and have excellent pronunciation. This is the best program ever. These videos make it so easy to pick up the language. My kids don't even realize that it is learning program. I love it! I wish they had a more difficult version after they master these videos that they can go on to.

Recommend to everyone
My wife is Polish and she was looking for toys and videos to teach our 3 year old Polish and told me she couldn't find anything useful. One day I ran across this set while I was searching something completely different. I was hesitant but I bought the DVDs just to surprise her... The DVDs and the cards are alright. The poster was folded into 2 halves which I didn't like much. The videos seem to be fun and engaging as our daughter keeps watching and doesn't seem to get bored. Her favorite part is animals and the scenes where the characters dance. Although she is not much interested in dinosaurs, she enjoys watching the videos.She sometimes choose to watch the Dino DVD instead of some recent movies we got for her which makes my job easier when I babysit her. I should also say that the videos don't only have dinosaurs but soome variety such as animals, 3D characters, quiz-like stuff, etc. The downside is there are many repetitions that might be overwhelming for adults. But for a small child it apparently works.When we visited Poland last month, our daughter was able to say many things to my mother in-law in Polish and both I and my wife were just amazed...

Wonderful for Kids
This is a great program to teach children basic words in Spanish! My son is 16 months old and it keeps his attention. Although he is not saying too many words yet, I am able to follow and say things in both English and Spanish to him. I love this aspect of the videos, that I can interact with him through this program as well! It's wonderful!

My son is learning Polish. We bought this program with the recommendation of a family friend, and I and my wife Magdalena first were first cautious because it was something like between an entertainment video and a game, it was amazing to hear my son uttering words in Polish. Recommended.

Absolutely amazing program!
My sons had learned a little bit of spanish from Dora the explorer on TV< but aside from that had never been exposed to other languages. However with in 5 minutes of watching the Dutch session they were both running around saying different words in dutch! They seemed to have an extremely good understanding of what they were saying as well! I am SO thrilled about Dino Lingo!! We will definitely be using Dino Lingo Programs in general to help advance our children's speech and language abilities!

a world of a difference
My son has had trouble learning his words. He works with tutors and specialists but this program has him enjoying learning the words as he sits there and reads them to me. He gets so excited when he gets the word without any help. I am so proud of how far he has come, It seriously is a world of a difference.

Fun dinos teaching spanish
My two year old son enjoyed watching the free viewing of one episode of the Dinos teaching spanish from Influenster. My son is currently going through an early intervention for speech specialist and is still building his vocabulary. Although he didn't immediately pick up the words being taught, the show definitely kept his attention. I would really consider this DVD set once he's gotten to a better place with his speech progress in English.

Growing up bilingual was a unique advantage , and I was afraid my son would grow up not learning polish. This is a great product for helping me start teaching my baby the basics. The dvds cover the basics, are very engaging for children (some of the animations are a little weird). I do wish that they had more products to progress to e.g advanced polish for kids.

Excellent Language Learning Program
I always am looking to advance myself as well as my little one. What I loved about this one was the colors and graphics really attracted my little one. She really liked the characters and was just as enjoyable as her fav. NickJr. cartoons.

Great way to keep my language
I had a sample sent to me in a mail that had all kinds of languages and I have tobe honest - my kids watched all of them, which was fun, but I was really happy with Russian language episode. First and foremost - it was read by a native speaker, which is a HUGE plus and it had a lot of words. Based on one episode I have I think it's a great way to add new words to my kids vocabulary and still have fun with it. I haven't seen the cards, but the DVDs on its own are AWESOME!

Awesome learning for kids
Played this for my 5 year old, but the 10 year olds were just as interested in it as the 5 year old. This is a great program and had my kids completely engaged in learning. Half the time I don't even think they realized they were learning!

Useful for adults too.
We don't have any kids. You might call us senior citizens. We're planning a trip to Turkey in the near future. We've used the Pimsleur Turkish language CDs to get a strong introduction to the Turkish language but we wanted a way to get a broad overview of Turkish vocabulary. We figured that a product designed to teach kids might be just what we needed. That's why we ordered this product. It works! Although not ideal for adult sensibilities, these DVDs provide a broad overview of the Turkish vocabulary. Turkish is presented in a fun way. You can learn hundreds of words for foods, animals, nature, activities, objects, people, relationships, etc. It would be nice if they offered some of the same content in a more compact, adult format, but, even so, this is a good way to learn. Maybe after we return from our trip, we'll give the DVDs to the grand-kids.

DinoLingo for Kids Spanish
DinoLingo for kids is a super easy, fun way for children to learn a new language. It incorporates cute characters and scenes that get the child interested and involved. This is a great way to start early and learn at home, while having fun at the same time. My child has only watched a few bits of this product so far and already can recognize spanish words. This is definitely a great option for someone that wants their child to learn a language, but they do not know one themselves. Your child will not want to stop watching the DVD.
