Of course, I had my reservations. Don't we all? But here's a video that may bring even the most reluctant Disney-disapprover into the fold.
Yes, that's Elsa from Frozen, singing her "I'm-going-my-own-way" song in twenty-five different languages. Play this one at home or in your class for young girls and then casually mention taking a closer look and listen to one of the languages Elsa is singing. I'll bet you get some interest.
If you're a teacher or a parent (or an aunt!) wanting to use this fun for global learning, you'll find some great ideas for research and discussion at Nat Geo's Blog
And ten years from now, watch out for the Daughters of Elsa world language students and speakers.
