Everyone can identify with the power of song to stir up memories! Some people associate songs with a happy holiday or an epic road trip. For me, certain songs often conjure up the memory of a superb surf trip to Devon with friends that I went on 10 years ago.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that one of the best ways to consolidate language learning is through the medium of song.

This is one of the successful ‘teaching methods’ employed by teachers at Lingua Translations Academy who are passionate about promoting the benefits of learning foreign languages through song. For both children and adults alike, the benefits of learning about language and culture through song range from the development of listening skills, the encouragement of intuitive responses, aided memory, better pronunciation and most of all – fun!

I enjoyed attending one of our Lingua Translations Academy sessions last week and was amazed to observe the recall that the children had for a French song. Not only did they remember every word, they also sang in perfect French accents! They were clearly having a lot of fun while learning about culture and language. Conjugating verbs certainly wasn’t that fun when I was in school.

While studying my BA in languages, I had the opportunity to live in Spain for a year. While there, I developed a passion for Spanish music and my language skills improved significantly. Perhaps this was due to the immersion environment that I found myself in (little village in Northern Spain), but I believe Spanish music contributed significantly to my grasp of the language.

If you would like to improve your French or Spanish, or would like to introduce your children the concept of foreign language and culture in a fun way, why not try by listening to the attached songs. They’re simple, easy to remember and we guarantee you’ll enjoy yourself at the same time! All together now, “frère Jacques….!
