Music for Learning

Lesson

A good way to learn a language is to do something you like. If you like to listen to music use that to help you. A good listening practice would be to listen to some easy music and write the words down as you hear them. You may have to listen to the song several times, but you will get it.

I use this for my students every 2 weeks, this helps the student to learn how to listen for English in a busy enviroment. It is best to choose music to which the singer is speaking very clear English.

Recomendations : Beetles, Tony Bennett, Creed etc.  Something clear. 

 Just listen to the music first, then play it back again and write down what you hear. Then play it back again to check. You can download or find most song lyrics online to verify the words of your song that you choose.

 Have fun and good listening.
