How songs help you learn a language

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head? Listening to or repeating the lyrics to your favorite songs in Spanish, even humming them, is likely to improve one or all of the following aspects of your language proficiency:

Vocabulary: Repeating the lyrics of a song is a proven way to master new words and phrases quickly, especially in musical genres that use many words. Think of it as a regular repetition of words in Spanish classes but with background music.

Grammar: While there are more effective methods for learning to use Spanish grammar in a structured way, listening to songs in Spanish can help you master and use certain grammar patterns correctly in everyday conversation.

Pronunciation and accent: Singing along with your favorite songs in Spanish also helps to reduce your accent and learn more about how to match words when you speak, which greatly improves your pronunciation.

See, your favorite songs can not only help you study Spanish on your own, but they also make learning fun. So what are you waiting for to use the songs you love to improve your Spanish vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation.
