Did you know that music
can help you to remember things faster and easier? This
is partly because music functions are controlled in a different
section of the brain than speech. Have you ever noticed you can
sing the entire alphabet, but can't always remember the order of
the letters without singing them?
One amazing fact is that some
stroke patients who can't talk— can still sing!
Believe it or not, some Alzheimer's patients who can't remember
their name can remember entire songs! This amazing power of music
can help you learn Spanish (to read an article from US News about

You think music sounds like a
fun way to learn Spanish, but you still have doubts about this musical
approach. You might be wondering—how can jamming to a few Spanish
tunes really teach me Spanish?
GOODBYE TO BORING!
It's actually pretty simple. One of the main reasons many people
don't achieve success with foreign languages is that they become
BORED. Bored with grammar rules, bored with their teachers, bored
with rewinding cassettes, bored with learning that isn't FUN.
THOSE WHEELS TURNING
So how will you actually learn
español by listening to Spanish music? Easy: these songs
start the wheels of your brain turning before you even realize it.
This learning technique taps into your brain's most natural way
to learn a language. You'll be amazed at how much of the lyrics
you can understand by listening to the voice or rhythm of the song.
This book uses the lyrics to the
songs to teach you Spanish. You might start out singing a word here
or there (bamba, bamba...) while gradually increasing your knowledge
of Spanish. The exciting part is that you aren't memorizing grammar
rules, but rather feeding your brain the knowledge as you listen
to the songs. That is why our teaching method is unique, and why
this method WORKS!
