Teaching foreign language is easy for ages 1 to 10, using our Magic Worlds Lesson Plan Kits. All are bilingual, so you can use them to teach either language.
They are designed to teach language fluency in an immersion environment.
Our List of Lesson Plans & Themes for Teaching Foreign Language to Kids
All of the first editions of our lesson plans are available in Spanish, French, and Chinese.
Starting with the preschool group and up, we are in the process of updating the curriculum to the second edition, so that everything will eventually be available in a new “Curriculum Set” format. Each curriculum set will include: a Lesson Plan Unit, a set of ToonFlips©, the text for the story, the illustrations for the story and a poster.
Only The Little Red Hen and Cinderella are available in the new format. However, until the remaining sets are ready, you can still purchase the old editions of the lesson plan units. Please contact us for details.

I am working to start a Spanish language immersion program this summer at my community’s public library. If the grant application is approved, the program will be a four week, eight session program and serve children ages 6-12. The structure and content of the program will fall entirely on me, which is super exciting but also terrifying! I am not a native Spanish speaker but I studied it in high school and recently lived in Barcelona for five months, where I was a full-time language student there as well. I wouldn’t say I am fluent but I definitely have a high enough level to work with introductory students. With the help of your lesson plans, I am hoping to run a fun and effective program for the kids. I was wondering if you had any recommendations on how to make this as successful as possible? I also play guitar and thought that adding music to the curriculum might make it more interesting to the kids. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time.
I don’t have use iTunes. I loved the red riding hood story book, the three bears story book, skip hop sing and the every day phrases application book especially. Absolutely fantastic. But I can’t buy the cendrillon etc as they seem to only be on an iTunes app. I use an android phone and CDs. My hubby is the techy one and he’s not interested in iTunes or it won’t work for us. I’m not sure but is there another option to access them? The other stories
Ana Lomba says
I’d like to create apps for the Google Play Store. Hopefully I can tackle it soon!
Valerie Cole says
I look forward to this too because I also use an android.
Just saw its now available on kindle.
The label says android and kindle but we’ve tried everything and the phone insists only kindle can buy it.
Even set up anazon and changed settings. But will remember it if we ever buy a kindle. Looks really good from the ads

My son is 5 and I’ve been asked by his pre-school teacher here in Scotland to help them with learning French as she doesn’t know the language at all. I studied it in high school (I’m American) and some in college, and would happily give it a go again but I’m not sure which of your products is suitable. I would enjoy studying French again, both at home as a parent and potentially in a casual teaching capacity so would appreciate your advice.
Thank you and all the best!
Ana Lomba says
It all depends on what you want to do. If it is a matter of using a few minutes to do something in French (not a bad way to get started). Then I would recommend sorting through the activities in my book Play and Learn French or the CD Hop, Skip, and Learn French. If it is something more elaborated, then you may want to take a look at my teaching units. I offer the first day of The Little Red Hen so that people can see how the units work. You can find it here: http://www.analomba.com/product/first-day-the-little-red-hen-french-english/
Good luck with everything!

I am interested in starting a language immersion program in the Sacramento area. Currently I teach Spanish at the college level. I am interested in pursuing a new approach to language instruction to really foster acquisition instead of memorization.
Ana Lomba says
What a great project! I was also teaching Spanish at the college level before starting my program for young children in ’99.
We run a webinar last week that may be of interest to you. Aside from introducing some ideas related to what you say about “acquisition” versus “memorization,” there’s also a special “Mother’s Day” offer to try my curriculum. To watch the recording, go to 5 Tips for Starting a Language Immersion Camp (Anywhere and in Any Season) and scroll down the page. Let me know if you have any questions.
