At the conclusion of each five-minute section of this 35-minute DVD, there is a brief review. The presentation is clear, simple, and engaging. The big question is this: will the program work? As with any curriculum, success will be based entirely on the child's response. Certainly, any child would be able to learn a few words using this product, and some children would be able to pick up many words. If I were using this program, I'd let my child view only one or two sections at a time. For the maximum benefit, you could watch along with your child and provide encouragement.
Before purchasing this DVD, you might want to preview it from your local library (or online). I'm not 26 months, nor have I researched the best way to teach languages to a young child. Yet, it seems to me, if you consistently make the time and have the desire, this language immersion program could yield solid results for your toddler.
