Preschool Foreign Language

So one of the ways we teach the boys about different languages is by teaching them familiar things in that language - like counting and songs.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - for those who may have not noticed, the ABC song and Twinkle Twinkle have the same melody and that melody was written by Mozart!


Brille, brille, petite étoile
Dis-moi, dis-moi, qui tu es
Tout en haut du firmament
Tu as l’éclat d’un diamant.
Brille, brille, petite étoile,
Dis-moi, dis-moi, qui tu es.


Brille, brille, estrellita
Quiero verte cintilar
En el cielo sobre el mar
Un diamante de verdad
Brilla, brilla estrellita
Quiero verte cintilar.


Funkel, funkel kleiner stern
Ach wie bist du mir so fern,
Wunderschön und unbekannt,
Wie ein strahlend Diamant,
Funkel, funkel, kleiner Stern,
Ach wie bist du mir so fern.


Mica, mica, parva stella,
Miror quaenam sis tam bella.
Super terra in caelo,
Alba gemma splendido.
Mica, mica, parva stella,
Miror quaenam sis tam bella.
Or the parody in english  by Ian D. Bush writer.

Twinkle, twinkle little star
I don't wonder what you are
For the spectroscopic ken
tells me you are hydrogen
