Learning from songs. Where to do?
It is very noticeable that words (and constructions) look MUCH more familiar, if they were heard in songs. It's like 1 time in song = 10 times in texts. That's obviously because songs emphasize language forms, while text is primary focused on meanings.
To make this work there probably should be: hearing, reading, understanding, singing back.
So, the question is if there are some resources with notable amount of songs along with subtitles and translations? Youtube with auto-subtitles and auto-translation is not a choice, of course.
Or, maybe, we could just sing the phrases duolingo gives.
I use YouTube and look for songs with the words included in the video. For example I might search for:
"Marc Anthony letra" or
"Fito y Fitipaldis letra"
For a French singer, I'll search for:
"Celine Dion paroles" or
There is also LyricsTraining: https://lyricstraining.com/
I also listen to Pandora, Spotify, and other streaming audio apps that build a "radio station" based on your likes. When I hear a song I like, I google the lyrics and then translate them in a notebook.
I have a bunch of French and Spanish songs in MP3 format that I've downloaded for free and legally through my Library's Freegal subscription. Check to see if your library has it. I can listen to my songs on the treadmill, in the garden, in the car...
Googling manually is quite a long way. Especially with all those crappy lyrics sites with "oops! add them by yourself"
But the lyricstraining seems the right thing.
But they just lack translations.
