One of the main reasons that kids and adults do not achieve success in learning Spanish is that they become bored and disinterested. Studies have shown that certain types of background music can help you increase retention of what you’re learning. There are varied opinions as to whether or not music-based language learning is truly effective. My opinion is that certain things are good to learn with music, like the alphabet. Here’s an example of that:

I think it’s a good way to learn the alphabet and grammar rules. I don’t think, however, that it should be the primary focus of learning. I previously stated that most people become bored with language learning. Learn a song every once in a while to break up your routine. Sing along with the artist. Doing this can help with comprehension and pronunciation. It can be fun too, especially with upbeat Spanish songs.

In conclusion, I think that music can help you learn Spanish. Visual Link Spanish uses “brain music” in teaching you certain words and phrases. The right background music is a good idea and will help with retention. Learning Spanish should be something that breaks up your routine to make it more interesting. However, it should not be a focus in learning. I would love to hear any comments you have.
