Learn and improve your English through your favorite songs

There is a lot of funny ways to learn and improve your English. One method that I like very much is to work with songs.

Working that way you are going to enjoy while improving your 4 basic skills:  Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. By the way you are also going to learn new vocabulary and sentences.

 

Why Is So Good To Work your English With Songs?

Learn And Improve Your English Through Your Favorite Songs

Working with songs is a very good idea because you work with a material (your favorite songs) that you like and enjoy. This fact is going to make the process of learning more pleasant for you.

You can work and improve all the four basic skills (Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing) at the same time through your favorite songs.

You can work with songs by different bands and artists and then you are going to work with different accents (UK accent, US accent…).

 

How I Work With Songs?

It’s important to underline that I only work with songs that I really like and enjoy. Don’t waist a single second of your precious time in a song that you don’t like.There are thousand and thousand of songs waiting for you out there.

Here are the 7 steps you can use while working with a song.

  1. You choose a song that you REALLY like.
  2. You listen to the song as many times as needed.
  3. You transcribe the lyrics of the song.
  4. You read ALOUD the lyrics of the song.
  5. You memorize the lyrics of the song.
  6. You recite ALOUD the lyrics of the song.
  7. You sing along with the song.

You can follow these 7 steps and then you are going to work the 4 basic skills (Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing) at the same time.

You can also work through any step you like avoiding the other ones.
For example if you only want to work your speaking skill then avoid the steps 2 and 3. You can look for the lyrics in the Internet and go ahead directly to the step 4.

How to improve your English speaking level even when…

Speaking is maybe the most important skill to master when you learn a language but why most people struggle so much to improve their speaking?

When you are not living in an English speaking country it’s not very easy to find opportunities to speak in English and then to improve.Then maybe you have to create this opportunities by yourself…

 

How to improve your English speaking level even when you are alone

 

Why Your English Speaking Level Is Not Improving?

I want to tell you one of the BIG mistakes I made for a very long time while learning English: My speaking level didn’t improve because I just didn’t speak in English at all.

If you want to learn to drive a car you just have to drive. You are not going to improve your driving skill just by only watching cars passing by.

Then how do you want to improve your English speaking level if you don’t often give you the opportunity to speak in English?

There is a magic word that can help you a lot to improve your speaking…

 

Aloud Is The Magic Word To Improve Your Speaking Skill Faster

I bet that sometimes you feel that your mouth and tongue struggle too much when you have to speak in English.

Here is a very easy strategy that is going to help you to improve :

Speak ALOUD as often as possible when you are alone.

  • Whenever you read, do it ALOUD.
  • Whenever you just finish writing something, read it ALOUD.
  • Try to sing songs ALOUD
  • Talk ALOUD while driving, doing the dishes, walking, having a shower…
  • Try to think in English ALOUD instead of in your native language (That is not easy if you have a basic level)

Force yourself to speak ALOUD in English every day and as much as possible.At first you can feel awkward or stupid, but keep doing it and you are going to improve for sure!!!

Seem quite obvious but think about it for a minute…
…are you speaking ALOUD as much as you should?

 

Speak Aloud As Much As Possible

How to learn English vocabulary in an easy and…

I started to learn English vocabulary by writing the words and its translation in a sheet of paper.
Then soon I had so many words and so much sheets of paper than I started to use an alphabet notebook.
I end up with a notebook full of hundreds of words that I wasn’t able to remember.
I still keep the notebook and even the bunch of papers but don’t check them anymore.
In my own experience it’s not a so good idea to learn vocabulary that way.

The best way to learn a new English word is when you directly link the word with the thing itself.

Increase Your English Vocabulary By Redecorating Your Life

To learn English words in a natural and easy way, I did something in the past that I still do nowadays and it’s quite funny and useful…

Just go around your house, office, car… and wherever you find a thing that you don’t know its name in English, you just check it in a dictionary and then write the name in a post and stick it on the thing itself.
It’s funny, easy and it’s going to help you to memorize the word.
When you have memorized a word you can remove the post.
Some posts are going to last for long. It depends on every word.

Places where you can apply this tactic:

    • Kitchen
    • Living room
    • Bedroom
    • WC
    • Car
    • Wardrobes
    • Cupboards
    • Desk

…among many others
