Languages by Lyrics is a Mac OS X
application for utilizing song lyrics and music to augment learning a foreign language.
Remember how you learned your ABC's?
Lyrics with music can be a powerful tool to assist with learning a foreign language. When words are combined with rhyme and music, the human brain can more readily retain the words in a natural way. This accelerates acquisition of vocabulary and thinking in the new language as opposed to just memorizing it. Music makes learning a foreign language fun.
This application assists with adding lyrics and translations to foreign language songs that are already purchased and downloaded in the user's iTunes library. Two different learning exercises are included. The first exercise prompts the user to select the correct original lyric text while the song is playing. The second exercise prompts the user to select the correct translation for each lyric while the song is playing.
The application is free and includes two exercises for learning the song lyrics. The Pro Version can be purchased In-App and includes three additional advanced exercises to fully master learning the lyrics of a song.
Once a song is learned it can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime to facilitate long-term retention of the language.
