Benny “Fluent in 3 months” Lewis has an article on his blog for 5 February, written by Susanna Zaraysky and entitled “Music and TV for homework …”
I decided to choose one of her ideas to put into practice. My own choice is quoted below. If you would like to find some great advice that fits your own preferences, please see
Language is Music: Over 70 Fun & Easy Tips to Learn Foreign Languages, by Susanna Zaraysky.
Talking of music in your target language, Susanna says:
“Relax and close your eyes. Turn off the lights. Lay down or sit in a comfortable position. Close your eyes and listen to the music. Don’t try to understand the words, just listen. You might fall asleep or day dream. Give yourself the time to simply listen and not do anything else. Your mind needs to be calm in order to absorb the sounds. Your ears need no other distractions to let them properly hear all the high, medium and low frequencies of the language. Do this regularly.”
The reasons I like this idea are:
1. It sounds relaxing and enjoyable
2. It makes sense
3. You can do it even when your eyes are tired from a day´s work.
