Lyrics training

A teacher told me about this site after another talk about "Using blogs in the classroom", and it's great.
As they say, " Lyrics Training is an easy and fun method to learn and improve your foreign languages skills like English through the music and lyrics of the songs."
First listen to the song, then fill in the blanks according to the level you have chosen, beginner, intermediate or expert. You can't advance if you don't complete the lyrics properly, but  you can listen to the song as many times as needed  just by clicking  intro.
More than 470 songs from Cat Stevens  to Lady Gaga, or from Metallica to Alicia Keys, all kind of music to choose.

Yeah, listening to songs and understanding them is a great way to learn a language ... I'd suggest translating them too. With a good dictionary translating a song isn't as hard as some people might thing ... a pre-intermediate can even do it if he really understands and likes and connects with the song writer. ... I've found that many great songs really are written in plain language, without too many idiomatic complexities.

Anyway, I'm touring English blogs and trying to promote mine a little. My blog "expletive English" I hope should be entertaining to learners and teachers of English - I hope you check it out! Cheers!

Hi, there!

Songs are absolutely helpful in the class, especially because lyrics are very simple, sometimes.

Since teenagers like music so much, for example, Lady Gaga can be a good "teacher" as regards simple phrases and then, when students have fun with their friends at a pub, they "do the homework" by listening to music, it's great.

I would also like to get your feedback on our blog:
