Use German music to “get into”

Learning a new language can be fuzzy. Especially during the first lessons, you might think that you don't get a grip. Where do words start, where do they end?

As recent research (cf. Cognitive Daily: Does music help us learn language?) and some years of experience have shown, music is a good "gateway" to language.

There are two reasons for this:

  • Singing actually activates a little more brain than just saying.
  • But - more important - songs have melodic and rhythmic cues. You cannot sing a text, if something is missing. And it is very unlikely to have a pause in a word ...

So, listen and sing German songs. Where to get some? O.k., just click these links, they consist search queries for videos at youtube of some German bands/artists you might like.
