Do you use music to improve your English ?

Hello GG users !
One of the most difficulties in learning language is to keep up your motivation.
I think that everybody have already been experienced it.


It is important to learn a language from things that are interesting to you. If you like music you can use it to learn English.


Recently, researchers have discovered numerous connections.


Here are some of findings :


1. Neurologists have found that language and music processing occur in the same area of brain.(Maess & Koelsch, 2001).


2. Learners from South Africa exposed to the instrumental music during intensive language courses, showed benefits for learning.(Puhl, 1989).


what is so helpful with music ?
First, they are written at a soft level for beginners. they are short and easy to understand. In addition, they are accompanied by rhythm and melody that make them much more memorable. Plus, they are plenty of repetitions.




Don't give up, don't frustrating. Enjoy your learning. If you enjoy your learning you will improve. So If you enjoy listening to music, use it to learn.


As usual, If you any comments let me know.

    You can only listen to 6 (not sex) songs so far along with the lyrics. It could be a good beginning!
