Improve Your Foreign Language Through Music

Posted by Audrey Dubois-Boutet on March 01, 2010

Imagine learning a new foreign language by simply singing along to your favorite Guns N’ Roses or James Blunt song. Soon, you can forget traditional memorization methods. Through the new web site, Lyrics Training, you can improve your skills or experiment with a new language.

The Lyrics Training website helps you learn a foreign language through interaction with music and song lyrics.

Simply pick a music video, the language you want to learn and choose between three different skill levels. The video pops up on the screen and the lyrics are underneath with several words missing. As the song is played, you sing-a-long and fill in the missing words.

Right now, six different languages are offered; English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Dutch.

It’s free and easy to set up an account. The web site is simple to navigate and fun to use. I think it is entertaining and an interesting approach to learning a new language.

Try it out! Sing along to your favorite song, and let us know your thoughts.
