Let’s Set The Tune !
C, E-flat, and G walk into a bar.
The bartender shows them the door and says, “Sorry, we don’t serve minors.”
Well on that note, let’s talk a bit more about music and language.
The way music can help improve language skills:
Language and music, two of the oldest ways of recording information. They have always been part of our lives, and always will be to some extent. A few fun facts about music and language are:
Music just like language has symbols that help keep a record of the song/ symphony. For music these symbols consist of notes and for language they consist of letters.
There different types of music around the world from jazz to classical, hip-hop to rock, many of them represent different cultures. (Personally I prefer the old sounds like Bon Jovi and Queen.)
Listening to music can help increase your vocabulary. When you listen to music that you enjoy, you are likely to remember the song text and if you don’t understand certain words you are likely to look them up.
Music and language, in this case writing, is just by a lot of people as an emotional outlet (Music has helped me when feeling sad or super angry. I just turn on my favourite song and almost immediately I start feeling better. The same with language a good book / story can turn a bad day into a good one.)
These are just of the few ways to improve your English through music.
