Simple Songs in *French*: Old MacDonald

Why Songs?

Children love songs, which makes them a great tool for language learning. For children learning French, it is best to introduce them to songs that they already know in English. This way they will be more interested and also they will be able to more easily understand it.

Old MacDonald Had a Farm in French

Old MacDonald gets a new last name in French, Mathurin! I like this version of the song because it shows the lyrics “karaoke-style.” This makes it easier for children to distinguish each word as they hear it. It is often difficult for language learners to understand where one word ends and another begins. Seeing the words highlighted as they are sung can help with that.
