Just figured out that there is an audio option on Netflix. I had seen this before, but didn't investigate further until another user on here reminded me of it. Loads of shows can be watch in languages such as French, Arabic, Mandarin, German etc! But a lot give only the English option, so you need to find the shows. At the moment for French I've found the audio option on Netflix for: Peppa Pig, Animals McGranicals, Puss and Boots, Popples, Care Bear Cousins, Lego Friends and there are probably more, but I don't have time now to go through them all.
Below is my "French kids shows" list from Netflix Canada (I'm not sure if Netflix from other countries have the exact same list). A lot of the shows listed have audio in many other languages like Spanish, Portuguese, German, etc. as well:
-Animal Mechanicals, Seasons 1 & 2
-Beat Bugs, S 1 & 2
-Busytown Mysteries, S 1
-Bo on the Go, S 1
-Care Bears & Cousins, S 1 & 2
-Clifford's Puppy Days, S 1 & 2
-Clifford the Big Red Dog, S 1 & 2
-Julie's Greenroom, S 1
-Luna Petunia, S 1
-Magic Schoolbus, S 1
-My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, S 3-6
-Octonauts, S 1
-Paw Patrol, S 2
-Peg & Cat, S 1
-Peppa Pig, S 1 & 2
-Super Why, S 1
-The Furchester Hotel, S 1 & 2
Please note that the above may be subject to change. Occasionally, some of the shows are taken off Netflix, or other ones added. I'm sure the audio options change too.
Thank you so much! I wish Netflix had the option where you could do a search based on audio! I think it is different depending on the country, as someone said Cailou on Netflix had a French option, but where I am in the UK, it didn't. And I just checked Paw Patrol and it does not offer French for some reason in the UK. However, Peppa Pig, Popples, Lego Friends, Care Bears and more has the French audio. I will check more on your list to see if they have a French option. I can't believe I only just figured this out!
Netflix is a monthly paid streaming movie/TV subscription service, and is available internationally. We use our PS4 to access it. Sorry, that is probably a bad explanation, but perhaps Google can explain better, and give more details.
Well I have just registered for the first free month....
I don't really know how much and how many times I will have to write: THANK YOU! That service is amazing! It has dozens of movies. I can set English soundtrack and English subtitles for probably 95% movies (kids movies included!) There are movies that my Lucy loves to watch. UNBELIEVABLE.
I'm glad that you discovered Netflix, Wojtek. It's great! I was so happy when they started streaming online! It used to be a DVD delivering service, which was great, but obviously streaming is way better. We use it every day! And even better now that I found out I can change the audio for language. It's amazing. I only wish there was a search button that enabled you to find the French audio or Spanish etc. I will try to request it!
BTW Amazon Prime also enables you to watch loads of movies and TV shows. But I think Netflix is better and Amazon doesn't seem to have a language option. At least I haven't found it!
Mayken: Two playdates with classmates from my 7-year-olds ml class this weekend, and the kids and parents all spoke ml the entire time! ml interaction with other kids is precious during summer holidays. Very happy

Mayken: Holidays! Just the 3 of us, in ML country this year, but I'm planning for a lot of ml time, without any family to visit and friends to meet (our program when we're in ml country).

Amy: Caught my eldest bragging to her cousin she could speak ml2 and asked him in ml2 if they could continue playing in this language....could it be my daughter is slowly accepting the fact she's bilingual and happy to be so...??

Mayken: Not all fun after all - we were at a castle today with an amazing 3h treasure hunt, but it was all in ML. My daughter did lots of ML reading (clues), but no chance of slipping ml in.

Mayken: Welcome back, Adam! We kept the zoo running while you were away and even swept up the monkey droppings!

Adam Beck: Well done, Mayken! Many thanks! (I was afraid I would be overwhelmed by the monkey droppings.)
