HOW TO LEARN SPANISH WITH MUSIC?
Do you want to learn in a funny and interesting way? Work your accent without repeating 100 times the same silly phrases found in the dusty books of schoolchildren? Do you like to sing in the shower? Do you want to speak Spanish easily? Music is your BEST TOOL!
Why learn Spanish with music?
Music and memory are intrinsically linked. There is one thing that advertisers have made us remember, it’s their music!
The impact of melodies proves that listening / repeating the words of a song is the best way to remember them. Immerse yourself in Latin music to capture the warm and singing accent of the Spanish language.
We all have songs that have marked us for life.
How are songs the key to learning Spanish? Music allows direct and dynamic interaction with language and culture.
5 steps to optimize your learning
- Choose a song you like
- Try to hear the song without looking at the text
- Find and read the lyrics by searching for difficult words
- Listen to the music with the lyrics
- Listen again and sing!
Take time later to listen to the song once in a while. Repetition is one of the pillars of memorization.
Recently I discover some tools that help me to teach Spanish to my students.

It is an easy and fun way to learn and improve your foreign languages skills, through the music videos and the lyrics of your favorite songs.
LyricsTraining also has a special Karaoke mode that lets you sing and enjoy the full lyrics.
Lyric Gaps offers songs classified according to the language and level of difficulty of the lyrics. Once you have selected the song, you will be able to preview its clip. Then you can choose from different exercises proposed (karaoke, filling holes in the text of the song or multiple choice questions), classified by levels.
At any time, you can click on a word to get its translation (via Google Translation).
Teachers by registering for free on the site, can create personalized exercises or «flashcards» to help students memorize the vocabulary of the text.
The site works in a collaborative mode and everyone has the possibility to propose a new song, or to check the lyrics of a song deposited by another member on the site (the exercise being added only after three checks by different people).
So, do not hesitate to spend a few hours on your favorite songs to learn Spanish.
