Teaching my younger children I just talked alot lol I would comment all the time, for example when pouring a cup of milk I'd comment that milk starts with a M which makes the Mmmm sound. And they'd say it after me and we'd make silly faces while going Mmmm! That way it was fun and so they often asked what everyday things would start with.
We'd also play the 'I Spy with My Little Eye' game using shapes not just colours. And using sounds: I see something that starts with a D!
During bedtime stories I'd ask them to help me sound something out. At the library I'd say lets pick out a book that has a C in the title today.
I never did find any toys that really seemed to teach much in the way of letters.
As for languages I used french words in everyday sentences. For example my daughter would ask for the red crayon, I'd hand it to her saying rouge crayon for you!
Hope this helped at least a bit.
