The Learning Method Behind Dino Lingo – Language Learning for Kids

This giveaway is sponsored by Dino Lingo.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I’m back with another feature on Dino Lingo this month and I’m super excited because it seemed that you all loved the last one – let’s do it again!


Last month we focused on why you want your children to learn a second language.  For my family, it’s because of my husband’s Filipino heritage.  He’s lived in the US since he was 10 years old, but Tagalog is technically his first language and what most of his family primarily speak at home, here in the US.

I would love for my girls to be able to understand a bit more of his language, which in turn helps to promote their understanding and learning of the Filipino culture, in addition to the Tagalog.  Thanks to Dino Lingo – we’re totally getting there!  They can now understand and say quite a few popular words in Tagalog!

This month, I want to share with you the How’s of Dino Lingo.  Let’s have a look at the method behind their language learning videos!

Dino Lingo Method

Dino Lingo is designed as a fun, light, and entertaining method to introduce children to common and simple vocabulary words in a target language. We have designed these language learning programs to engage children as a form of entertainment, which ignites the imagination and encourages them to want to gain a deeper understanding of the target language.

The Dino Lingo language learning program is designed as an introduction to 200 vocabulary words and simple phrases, which a child may easily identify after watching the video several times. The goal of the entertaining and engaging DVDs is to capture a child’s imagination, as they are introduced to new words in a new language.

In fact, there’s a whole science behind the method of teaching a language with Dino Lingo.  Be sure to read just how they set up each language so that your child can benefit the most!

The 5 Disc DVD Set retails for $89.95.  Check out the Dino Lingo website to see all the other teaching tools you can add to your collection including: Maps, Flash Cards, Posters, Coloring and Activity Books, and even a Dino Lingo Plush!

What do you think about Dino Lingo’s Method of Learning?  What did you learn about their Method?

  1. The immersion aspect is great, as well as the repetition of common words and phrases. I think that really helps with learning a new language.

  2. Laurie Emerson says:

    I like how they make learning a new language fun. They are learning without even knowing it. Using dinosaur characters is such a great idea as all children are fascinated by them.

  3. christina haddadin says:

    The fact that it is interactive is awesome to me.

  4. Kathy Pease says:

    It has been proven over and over again that repetition is the greatest way to learn a new language. Watch the DVD together with your children, and repeat what is being said in concert. Children powerfully identify with their parents and caregivers involvement in their world of play. So, role model for them; seeing you share in this experience by repeating the words, songs, and jingles will increase their engagement, resulting in higher comprehension and more positive attitude towards learning a new language.

  5. like how the speakers are native.

  6. Stephanie M says:

    I learned that babies identify with high-pitched voices known as “mother ease” and Dino Lingo incorporates that science into the lessons. So interesting!

  7. like that there videos are interactive.

  8. Mallory Bailey

    I like that the program is interactive. Programs that ask questions and allow kids to be involved seem to increase the kids attention.

  9. Amanda Alvarado says:

    I like that it incorporates play and storytelling! If it doesn’t catch your child’s attention, it’s not going to work! All kids like to play and hear stories!

  10. Susan Smith says:

    I learned that this is a full immersion program that gradually introduces the 200 most used words in a language through the use of interaction, play, storytelling, dino characters and animation

  11. Hannah Avery says:

    I like that they use immersive teaching techniques!

  12. Dameon s says:

    I like the interactivity. That should help keep my sons attention.

  13. Lynda Thomas says:

    It definitely seems like they put a ton of thought into how the kids would learn and focus the best. I love that they have native speakers for each language to make sure the pronunciation is accurate. That is so helpful!

  14. Laurie L says:

    Not just for the grandkids, but for ME!

  15. I like that the videos are interactive

  16. Beanybopp says:

    I love how the program builds your child’s confidence in the target language with each lesson. Most programs out there just “run” through the motions and kids just get bored with it. If your child feels like they are doing a great job it helps want them to learn more!

  17. Catherine Spruance says:

    I like the immersion and contextual learning. I moved to another country when I was 13, and I learned much more from my peers than I did from formal classes.

  18. Would love for my little girl to learn my native language Polish

  19. Me Too! Would love for my son to learn my native language

  20. Mahmoud K says:

    I like how they use native speakers.

  21. Jennifer says:

    I thought it was neat that kids attune better to female voices. I also like the sudden surprises to keep their attention.

  22. Rebekah Drapeau says:

    I love that they use contextual variation of words in their language program. I think this provides a deeper understanding of the language.

  23. nikki robak

    I learned that they use the 200 most used words to learn

  24. Would love to win this to give to my grand-daughter. I know she will be able to learn lots and have fun while learning.

  25. Jessica Menster

    I learned that this is a full immersion program that gradually introduces the 200 most used words in a language through the use of interaction, play, storytelling, dino characters and animation. This looks like an impressive program!

  26. Mary Withrow says:

    I love the animation. It is so hard to keep children interest. The animation is great and repeating is the key to learning

  27. Christine N Cherry

    I learned that kids and babies respond to high pitched female voices. I guess I kind of knew that since I have 3 kids but I never realized it was a fact. Interesting.

  28. kathy downey

    i like they way they do step by step learning

  29. marian boll says:

    The whole program of starting with words, then songs, then stories….how perfect…..I would want the Spanish so my granddaughters have a step up on their lives. (I might listen as well, maybe I could also learn!!!)

  30. I like that their language learning methods incorporate play and storytelling!


  32. sherry blamer says:

    I like that they do everything in steps to help your child learn it.

  33. Claiborne says:

    I like that it uses immersion.

  34. This would be perfect to win and to help develop a child’s mind! Learning the languages used by their Grandparents and family members, to carrying on the traditions of their heritage is so extremely important; I can’t say enough.. but thank you for the opportunity to win the right tools to be used to make that possible. <3

  35. Angela P

    It is so clever that they use female and child actors in these videos because studies have shown babies and young children identify best with high pitched voices. This sounds like a great dvd. I’d love to get it in Spanish, my kids know a little bit of Spanish because of my husband’s family.. but I’d love them to be fluent.

  36. christina moore

    This would be great for my granddaughter

  37. Emily Oh says:

    I love that it’s aimed fully for kids. All the new languages pictures and words.

  38. I love how it has subtitles of both the native characters and Roman characters. It also uses common phrases so it’s relevant and they will be able to use it in everyday conversation

    How interesting that children pay attention to higher pitched voices. I guess it makes sense! I also like that they use native speakers of the languages. I would get Portuguese for my kids because their dad’s heritage is Portuguese and it would be nice for them to learn it!
