Chose any of your favorite English songs and find its original text and translation. Read all it.

Listening to the English song look at the original text and you will hear and understand more words then before.

Hello. For intermediate level, I suggest "don't say you love me", M2M; "fix you", Coldplay; "ben", Michael Jackson. I recommend you to listen to the song, trying to write the lyrics. Maybe you don't understand every word, but it is a good exercise. Best wishes!

Try Pentatonix.

I would suggest Disney or musical songs because the words are usually simple and enunciation is clear. Pop and especially hiphop artists use a lot of dialogue/words that learners won't be able to understand.


Examples of Disney songs:

Can you feel the love tonight (lion king) , a whole new world (aladdin), let it go (frozen) , beauty and the beast, i can go the distance (Hercules) , part of your world (little mermaid), be a man (mulan) colors of the wind (pocahontas), I won't say i'm in love (hercules)


Broadway musicals:

I dreamed a dream, On my own, One day more (Les Miserables)

Music of the night, Phantom of the opera, All i ask of you (Phantom of the Opera)

Defying gravity, for good (Wicked)

Aida, Rent, Book of Mormon, Into the woods


There's a movie musical that came out a few months ago, The Greatest Showman. That's pretty good too.
