Je l’aime! I’m a French teacher in UT, would you mind if I show this to my students? I know they would love to see it and hopefully feel inspired by her speaking abilities – I know I am! She sounds like a native! Another great video by the amazing Blair family!

I was amazed too at Betty’ wonderful accent and pronunciation. Thumbs up!
Your kids do an excellent job…everytime! And if in the future they ever need French pen pals to keep up with their French maybe my 4 kids could be just that? :-))

That voice and the costumes!

I am just curious about the ending of the story: In Germany the wolf eats the grandmother and Little Red Riding Hood, and the hunter frees them by slicing up the wolf’s belly.
Did you change that yourself or is this the more common version in the US? I am always interested in cultural differences. I just googled it and found out that the original story is French (I thought of course it was German:-) and in that one there is no happy ending. Just for the wolf. Everybody else gets eaten.

Please don’t get me wrong, but since you have changed the story, the moral teaching is also gone…

And Betty’s French is phenomenal! I hope she doesn’t lose that beautiful accent once she’s back to speaking English full time.

It’s magical. I’ve always found this fairy/folk tale enchanting and one of the reasons why is the bright red cape. I love how it stands out almost as if it’s a separate, distinct character.

Having a bilingual or multilingual family must be so fantastic… I hope you’re all able to retain the French you’ve learned when you come back to the States. :)

Betty’s accent is not only excellent, but she has a totally adorable voice :) Please tell all of the children that they did such a fabulous job! I really do agree that you should frame the title design – such detailed work and a lovely memory for your family.

I will be sharing with my high school French students. I already showed them your video about French bakeries when we studied food. I just love reading about your adventures!

I watched this with my daughter, who is in her second year of a French Immersion program. She loved it and says she understood every word. Having half her school day in French has been an amazing experience for our whole family – even those of us who don’t speak much French! Tell everyone tres bien!

Little ones are like sponges. It’s always fascinating to see how quickly they can learn a foreign language and really learn to pick up the accent too! Very well done :) it made me feel nostalgic. I grew up with the more dramatic (and exciting) ending but this one put a smile on my face and I will have to share this with my girls! Great job!! You have every reason to be proud! ;)

About half way through my middle one asked, “what are they speaking?” and when I said French the littlest said, “Like we sometimes speak Italian?” The unknown language was actually quite lovely and the version you told was so well done by your kids. Well done Blair family, what a treat!

We’ve been reading Little Red Riding Hood lately at bedtime and in our story the wolf eats them up :) Kind of morbid! Anyways little Betty’s french accent is amazing! I speak french and am amazed…she almost sounds native. Good work! I’m so jealous of your adventures…France is near and dear to my heart!

And I know what you mean about fairy tales and children’s voices. A great combination!
