While I was studying French and Spanish in high school and college, I learned many songs in those languages. The practice was fun (I love music) and very beneficial. I learned vocabulary, some good idioms and even a few grammatical structures that we hadn't covered in classes.

I'm not really very involved in today's popular music (I'm an old fuddy-duddy), but I think it would be wiser to avoid it when looking for valuable language information. It might be better to go back to the music from 1940-1980, concentrating on romantic ballads and so-called "folk songs". [I'm not sure that studying an Oscar-winning song that tells how hard it is to be a pimp these days will offer you much.]
Thank you, Philip. I'll try on your advice. Emotion: smile
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
In addition, there's a thread in this forum that brushes on this method of learning English by listening to music .
Thank you, Arvsworld.
Your web is so good. This worked well. Emotion: smile

To Philip again. ^_^
Now, Have you still learned songs in the languagues you've learned? If not. Why? Emotion: smile

Not as much as I did while I was using them as a study aid. I'm sure they would a great source of current slang, but because slang passes so quickly it wouldn't do me much good.
Hello. I think this is bad idea to learn English from musics and other.

First of all you must learn a gramma and after that you may learn English from Music/song, but not gramma only vocabulary bank.

But this is my IMHO

Sometimes I thought of it as you did.
But I take me back in time, when I was a kid, I just listen, listen, and listen...and I speak. I think learning English from songs is one of the ways to improve your skills. It must be accompanied with other ways not only way.
Grammar, ok, I think you are right. In a song, I can learn new words, pronunciation, maybe...accent...and so on. Do you agree?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
