We are proud to announce that the Chinese version of
In My House is now available as a CD and download!
Consisting of the same award-winning songs heard on In My House and En Mi Casa, the Zài Wǒjiā album by SingALingo features a talented bi-lingual singer, Sarah-Eve Dill, and includes all the lyrics in Chinese (pinyin, not chinese characters) and translation in English.
We are thrilled to introduce you to Sarah-Eve Dill, who has been studying Chinese since 7th grade, and just entered her 1st year of college this Fall. Once we heard Eve sing, we asked her to work with us since she had the combination of excellent pronunciation (as recommended by her native speaking Chinese teacher) and a wonderfully expressive singing voice!

LEARNING SPANISH WITH SING-A-LINGO
Today, Jennifer shares kudos for locally based Sing-A-Lingo. Read on to learn more about this musically oriented Spanish learning program, as well as to learn how to be one of two winners to receive Sing-A-Lingo CDs:
We tried out Sing-A-Lingo's En Mi Casa CD, Buenas Noches, Amigos Singable Book, and Lyric & Vocabulary To-Go Cards and I would recommend this program both as a great introductory program, and as a supplemental program for kids who are looking to enhance beginning skills. My four kids range from beginning Spanish speakers to more advanced, and they all enjoy Sing-A-Lingo. The materials are targeted toward the pre-school and early elementary-aged set, but kids slightly older might enjoy independently reading through the books and cards as well. READ MORE
