I've always found that it's good to test your listening comprehension by listening to songs. Though I'm rather random with my choices (listening to Japanese music while doing Spanish) XD Post some good songs in foreign languages here!
I just like to pick up random languages here and there, but one reason I do know Japanese is from anime XD
I've listened to a bit of Spanish music because of my Spanish teacher. Joy Enriquez has a lovely voice; I should get my youth group to sing the English version of Hallelujah :)
It sounds lovely, but I can't understand a word of it. Do you have a rough translation of what it's about?
basically it's from Romeo and Juliet and she is singing how much she loves romeo etc
I'm afraid! Although I know that I'll wake up for the day, I'm afraid To be underground, where cold darkness will grip me Is there stronger love, than a human death? Can it overcome the shadow Of sorrow at sheded blood?
I'm afraid! And I'm really sad and bad feelings are torturing me 'Cause even a priest could go wrong and mistaked And though he knows a prayers' sense and he knows what is sin Does he know how to save us, does he know How do break our despair?
My darling! We do not know where us madness leads, Exile fate punish you, and I marry sadness, Darling!
My darling! Misfortune follows me like a bad shade, But I know well when I will see you again The light brightens the darkness.
I'm afraid! Who knows how well or bad, I'm afraid? Or maybe fear is to warn against bad step? Before mistake protect me, to change the plan, When fate wants us to take back what he gave And in return give loneliness ...
My dear! Where do the madness lead up? Where? The fate has bestowed us love forever Dear!
My Romeo! Although sorrow is following me, like a bad shadow, I know, that it will disappear like nighttime The light will brighten darkness!
My Romeo! The dawn will shine When I and you will manage fear and tears With our love - Dear!
My Romeo! I know that I have to overcome fear The whole world will be open wide for us Where you'll go, I'll walk there
I love you...!
Thanks for the translation! I really hated Romeo and Juliet though. It wasn't a bad piece of writing, but it was just dumb. Sorry, it's just a pet peeve of mine
o.k see you soon but my school day is almost over and i don't go on at home so see you later i guess
Ska de la Tierra
(Stromae has a ton of great songs in French)
(Artist: Maitre Gims)
Est-ce que tu m'aimes?
I'm also pretty random with my music choices, I.E Listening to Kpop/Jpop/Cpop during Spanish, or Russian music during English class. I like music in pretty much any language :)
Edit: I made a post asking what are some good Spanish songs and i got a bit of comments, feel free to check it out! Link :)
ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm idk i mostly listen to Japanese openings for anime so i don't have any songs why don't you just search up spanish songs?Don't get mad thet i don't have any songs i'm really, really, really sorry
my fave animes are Vampire Knight, Blue Exsorsist,The seven deadly sins and little witch acadima
Seven Deadly Sins is so gooood. I've read the manga too. Little Witch Academia looks so cute! I need to check it out sometime. Where did/do you watch Vampire Knight? I want to start that series but can't find it anywhere.
gasps I love the Seven Deadly Sins! Bleach would have to be my all-time favorite anime, though. ^ ^
That's easy for me, even though I'm not learning Spanish I do like to listen to Spanish music - obviously the popular being Enrique Iglesias, and at home we have one of his albums that's in Spanish and English with the lyrics which is handy.
Funny enough Spotify says I have similar listening trends to those in Mexico?
Wasn't he the one that wrote "Bailando?" That's like the one Spanish song that kids in America know
I'm a huge fan of J-pop fan and my favorite artists of that genre are Utada Hikaru, Kalafina, Ali Project, and SID. I'll just list out my favorite songs from each because if I don't, I'll go on an extreme tangent on why I love them!
Utada Hikaru: Sakura Nagashi
Ali Project: Troubadour and Darkness Heaven
I typically like listening to the openings of animes. Though, I really need to listen to more French music, since that's my target language. Anyways, hope you enjoy these!
Thanks! I'll be sure to check them out. Have you listened to Itou Kashitarou?
I'm not really into hip hop or rap, but thank you for the recommendations :)
I can't imagine what's going to show up on my recommended feed on YouTube after this
XD I should show that to my Spanish class. I'm wondering what my teacher is going to think
but they are sort of wierd/crazy/dramatic/messed up for example in the first episode of Blue Exsorsist the main character Rin see's his dad get possesed by satin
I know, I've watched Blue Exorcist. It is a little strange, but all the characters are lovable :)
well to answer your earlier quetsion about Vampire knight you can find it on netflix in the anime sectoin
I was on the like last episode of season 1. I need to catch up now, especially since the second season is now airing
you know its ok you don't have netflix. Just because I watch it there doesn't mean you can't watch it
I can probably find a site to watch it illegally. coughKissanimecough Or maybe Crunchyroll will license it someday
Even if I did watch it on an "illegal" website, I wouldn't get any penalty. If anything, the website would just get deleted (which it has been before)
