LyricsTraining

LyricsTraining is “the new way to learn English and other languages through music and the lyrics of your favourite songs”. You listen to songs and complete gaps in the lyrics.

For example, you might choose “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. Pick a level from Beginner to Expert. You then get a YouTube video of the song with subtitles, which are missing random words:

Is this the real life?
Is this **** fantasy?
****** in a landslide, ** escape from reality
Open **** ****
Look ** ** the skies and see

Type in the correct words and the song will continue.

It is probably fun for a while, but how much it improves students’ listening skills remains to be seen.
