I love music, even when the songs are sung in languages I don't know. I really enjoy using music to help me learn a language, as well. I find that it helps me learn (and remember!) pronunciation and vocabulary. I find the lyrics to the songs online and read along as I listen. I try to learn the words so I can sing along without reading the lyrics. There is a website, LyricsTranslate.com that has popular songs translated into several languages. If you can't find the translation you need, you can request a translation and hopefully someone in the community will be able to provide it. Listening to music in my target language helps me to "think" in that language as well. It is the closest I can get to immersion right now. :)
I'm currently learning French and have found several artists to enjoy. I really like Christophe Maé, Mylène Farmer, Indila, Keny Arkana, Kendji Girac, TAL, Zazie, Shy'm, and many others!
Do you listen to songs in your target language? Has it helped you with your language learning? What language are you learning, and what songs or artists do you enjoy listening to in that language?
Hello, Melissa. I absolutely agree with you. Every day I try to listen songs in my target language. Sometimes even I do not understand all words, then as you said I look at websites where songs are translated. You are right, when we listen songs we begin to think in our target language. Today I listen this song and I think I will listen it some times. Very nice:)
