Lyrics Training

Lyrics Training is a fun site that uses music videos and games based on the videos to teach you your target language. This is one of Faith's favourite sites because she loves to sing and listen to music. First you will want to select the language you are learning.

Next you will want to select a video with a level of difficulty that won't be too hard for you.
There are three difficulty levels. Easy, Medium, and Hard. At first you may not be sure what level of music video you should be watching but it shouldn't take too long to figure it out.

Follow along with the video as you play a fill-in-the-blank game, earn points, and collect vocabulary words. This one is Dices by Selena Gomez & The Scene. It's Medium.
I recommend watching the music video a few times and then playing the fill in the blank game that goes with it. This is a fun way to get used to listening to the language.

Some researchers also believe that because of the way our brain works we are more likely to retain something that has been sung to us for a long, long time than something that has simply been spoken to us.

There are three game modes. Easy, Medium, and Expert. On Expert you will fill in the full lyrics. You might want to really get to know the song before trying that one!

This site will keep you busy for a while but make sure it's not quiet time when you play with this one!

Languages: English, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German
