Learning a new language doesn’t have to just be looking down at a book and studying grammar. Many classrooms have found success in learning English through songs and movies. And the best part...it’s fun!
Singing english songs with young students helps them learn pronunciation very early on, which can be one of the more difficult parts of learning a language. Typically songs are focused around one topic, this helps students learn vocabulary on a certain subject. This method of learning also improves memory which is important when learning a new language.
Apart from the benefits of learning english, singing and music in schools have major advantages. Research shows that musicians have larger neural activity than those who don’t study music. Playing an instrument and learning to read music uses your brain in a unique way that literally raises your IQ.
