There are many methods of learning a foreign language, some of them are more successful, while others give a very low result. Quite often the effectiveness of this or that method lies in clever tricks that make learning an exciting process or even a game. Remembering for many is a repetition: but that something really remains for a long time in the luggage of our consciousness, there is not enough good memory. For the development of memory and training, the diction of children from childhood to the last classes of the school is made to teach poetry and prosaic passages. The child curses the text for a long time, but after a while he forgets. But it is noticed that we rarely specially teach the words of popular hits or songs we like, they are remembered themselves. What's the secret?

A beautiful melody is a very bright and impressive phenomenon for our consciousness. We like the song, and if we are interested in words, they are remembered effortlessly through several auditions. We want to listen, remember and sing along.

But the above phenomenon of memorizing songs refers only to songs in the language that is understandable for us.

The idea of ​​learning English while singing is good only when you know the language a little. If you do not know a single word, English songs will be equivalent to bird twitter for you: birds sing perfectly, but it is absolutely impossible to learn the meaning of the song.

The second important moment arguing why one can not neglect the basic types of training is that the human ear is accustomed to distinguish only those sounds that completely coincide with the sounds of our native speech. Sounds, which are not in our native language, our consciousness "drives" to the usual. We simply do not hear them as we need, and we say it in our own way. It is for this reason that many Japanese who study the Russian language say "halaso" instead of "good." In Japanese, there is no sound that transmits the letter "P", and it is replaced by a more suitable one. This also happens when learning English. Therefore, in addition to listening to the song in English, it would be nice to see how its words are recorded, and also it is desirable to do certain phonetic exercises.

To successfully learn English with songs, you need to have audio recordings of songs, their text in English and its translation. A good help for your lessons can be karaoke.

Learning while listening to songs in English is useful and effective, but you need to do it right. There are different songs

It is very important to know that not every song is suitable for learning English with it. Many modern American and English songs, especially Rap, abound with slang words and phrases that can make your speech understandable for the kids from not very prosperous American quarters, but completely unsuitable for communicating with the English queen.

You also need vocabulary for everyday vocabulary to enrich the vocabulary. Therefore, choosing English songs for training, it would be ideal to stop on such directions as Jazz, Blues, Folk and Country. The Opera and the Musical are also suitable for this, but these genres have not been popular with students recently. Yes, and the above four genres may be beyond your musical preferences.

Modern youth are more likely to listen to Pop, R & B, Rap, Alternative, Rock. Here we are in a difficult situation: in order for training to be effective, you need to listen to exactly what is interesting, but you need to learn the "right" language. The conclusion is simple: you can assign the materials for individual training with the help of songs to an experienced teacher who will exclude from your favorite playlist a song with gross grammatical mistakes, or explain in which cases phrases from songs will be inappropriate during communication.

For learning it is desirable to choose solo songs. Several performers and backing vocals can make perception difficult.

Songs for the first lessons

The fact that to learn English with the help of learning songs requires minimal knowledge does not mean that you cannot sing from the first lessons. You can sing and even need it. But put up with the fact that the songs that you will sing are childish.

Even when they learn their native language, children sing a lot. Singing in kindergarten is not only the development of musical hearing in the child, but also a kind of exercise for the development of diction and articulation, which also trains memorizing new words in their native language. Therefore, for those who wish to sing from the first lessons, children's songs are quite suitable. If this moment confuses you, postpone the singing until the moment when you can understand even a few words from the song you have chosen.

Songs in English for working with diction: Here we will reassure those who do not think their life without Rap. Not everything is so categorical - Rap can also be used in teaching. But the way it is used is slightly different than for blues compositions. Well-matched Rap easily tie to various phonetic workouts. Instead of training tongue twisters, you can start classes with learning a verse of a rap song.

Karaoke, or how to learn with a song: To learn English with the help of songs, in addition to the sound file itself, you need to have the text in the original language and the translation. First, you need to listen to the song and try to disassemble the English words you already know. Even with a good lexical stock, it's not always easy for you to pick out familiar words in the song. Do not be discouraged, with each lesson it will be easier. Then read the text, try to translate it yourself.

A ready translation into Russian will be necessary for you not to search in the dictionary for every unknown word. It takes time, even if you use an electronic dictionary. It is irrational and tedious when learning a language to waste precious time searching for an exact translation for each phrase. There is a risk that you will become tired and lose interest in learning. Leave out what is unclear if it does not particularly affect the overall meaning. After you figure out the text, start singing. A good option for such a lesson is karaoke, but if there is no karaoke, you can sing while looking at the English text.

Pleasant and fun lessons for you.
