Lirica (Language Learning with Music)
Choose music from current Latin Superstars like Nicky Jam or Classic Artists like Elvis Crespo and learn Spanish vocabulary and grammar through their songs.
There are so many reasons why using music is a fantastic way to learn:
– Songs are memorable (we’ve all had lyrics stuck in our heads for days!)
– Music is engaging, we choose to let it form the soundtracks to our lives
– Songs are windows into culture
– Spanish speaking music videos with the lyrics translated by expert linguists
– Curated lessons focused on the key grammatical themes in the song
– Fun listening and translation games played to the pace of the songs.
Jam for iPhone can turn anyone into a rock star with their own virtual band. Sing anything into your phone and Jam will turn it into an original musical Masterpiece, regardless of your musical ability.
Simply select a musical style and tempo then hit record. Jam detects the incoming vocal pitch, musical key and song structure, then it auto-tunes the vocal and produces original backing music to suit. The result is awesome!
The only downside is that is currently not supported by iPads, so only users with iPhones can benefit from it. Also, for a variety of tunes to be available for your recordings, you will be asked to pay.
