Music is so powerful. It brings people from all parts of the world together in so many different ways. By experiencing new music we can learn so much, including improving or expanding our vocabulary. Today everyone uses YouTube almost daily. It is great because you are able to listen to pretty much any song you desire, and alot of the time you can listen to it in so many different languages, including lyric versions so you can sing along and learn new words.
It seems that in today's world English and Spanish songs seem to dominate the music charts. Which reaIly gives us the opportunity to learn and practice at any given time. I sometimes catch myself trying to sing along to Spanish songs that I always hear on the radio and when I get home I tend to YouTube the song and continue singing, or at least trying too haha.
The great part of learning through music and song is that at any age you can learn at your own pace and enjoy whatever type or genre or music you perfer. There is something for everyone wheather you are 6 or 60!
I love when I am teaching a class and there is a song and I catch the student singing along, it always makes me smile because we can sing together, but also because I see myself in the student.
I wanted to post some great songs that I think are great for learning English, no matter what age!
I really hope you enjoy the music, and if you have any requests please let me know!
