Learning English With Music

This question goes to all music lovers: How much are you learning by listening to music? Music is one of the most accessible art forms on earth – we enjoy it because it helps us have fun, helps us relax or meditate, and it’s upbeat. But did you know it is also a great way to learn English.

In honor of World Music Day, we thought we’d take some time out to explore exactly how beneficial music is to your language development skills. If you’re planning on learning English, or already studying up, music can be a valuable skill to help you retain what you learn. But how? Easy, just listen!

Strengthen your vocabulary and listening skills Learning English With Music

When listening to a song, you’ll pick up new words that you haven’t heard before or notice some words that are being used in a different context with a different meaning. Listening to (and studying) a new song per week can help you learn 52 songs a year, which are full of new vocabulary and phrases that are difficult to forget.

For example, listening to a song like “Friday, I’m in Love” by the Cure is a great way to memorize the days of the week! This exercise will also develop your listening skills. Music can help your brain be more receptive to hearing English.

Speak like the locals do. Learn English with Music 

Song lyrics contain slang, figures of speech, symbolism, and metaphors that you may not use in your everyday language.

They also contain abbreviations in the written language that you can learn and use in an informal situation,

such as text messaging or Internet-specific terminology.

Perfect your pronunciation

Once you have learned the lyrics, you can practice your pronunciation and explore different accents.

Accents depend on the country but also on the area the singer comes from.

Singing will help you to learn the correct pronunciation of the words and will also help you remind easily the new vocabulary you have learned.

The verses in the song “Parklife” by Blur are more spoken then sung, and you can definitely hear a strong English accent.

Catch obvious grammar mistakes

If you have a good eye for mistakes, you can find many grammar “exceptions” songwriters usually use. Sometimes singers need to adapt the lyrics to the rhythm of the song, so they take some creative liberties and use grammatical errors on purpose. It’s not only funny when you catch them, but it’s also very helpful to spot these errors as a way to practice your grammar knowledge.

For instance, in the Beatles’ song “Ticket to Ridethe chorus says: She’s got a ticket to ride, but she don’t care. She doesn’t care is grammatically correct, but it just doesn’t sound good.

James is a very professional teacher with whom i recommend to work 100%.

I had several goals before we start

1 – resume my English communication skills after almost a 10-year break

2 – not to afraid to speak because of the possible grammar mistakes

3 – expand my vocabulary to continue working in consulting business all over the world

And during our lessons we archived it on 100%, 100% and 70% now and “work in progress”.

Advantages of working with James:

– Native speaker – faster progress

– Very extensive work experience and professional approach is felt thanks to this

– Personal training materials, which are constantly improving and progressing

– Very diverse tips on how to progress independently in between classes

– It is always a pleasure to work with a person who understands his mission

– James’ interest in student development is always felt

I highly recommend working and have progressed in English with James!

We have been working with Jimmi since October 2021. He is an excellent teacher who is ready to adapt to your wishes. We had excellent and productive IELTS preparation classes and had wonderful conversational classes where we discussed various topics and our hobbies. It turned out that Jimmi loves music and Formula 1, just like me. Classes are fun and fruitful!


“Смело могу рекомендовать James кака репетитора английского языка. 

Открытый и доброжелательный человек. Общение идет только на английском, так как другого языка он не знает. Объясняет все доходчиво и понятно. Преподаватель адаптирует стили ведения урока под знания ученика, знаю так как мой сын также учился у James.

Нет напряжения и отношения- я учитель, ты ученик. С James ты изучаешь настоящий английский –английский.

После 2,5 лет в международной школе у 12- летнего сына был приличный уровень английского, поэтому когда мы прервали обучение там, стали искать репетитора “native speaker”. Джимми Монк стал настоящей находкой для нас! Два урока в неделю по скайпу в течение года позволили не только сохранить набранный уровень, но и существенно продвинуться в лексике. Очень важно, что сын слышал от учителя “настоящий британский английский”, не отягощенный акцентом.

Через год, вернувшись в международную школу, сын смог успешно сдать вступительный тест и не испытывал значительных сложностей в общении с преподавателями и своими позврослевшими англоговорящими одноклассниками. Спасибо Джимми за это!

James у нас семейный учитель английского языка. Мне как фешн блогеру необходимо много коммуницировать с людьми. James мне помог быстро подтянуть уровень разговорного английского, сделать мое произношение лучше, а также адаптировал уроки под мою сферу деятельности. Очень благодарна за это и продолжаю совершенствовать язык.
А с детьми коннект с учителем произошел сразу же. Марк и Кира разговаривают с James как с другом обо всем, что сами захотят обсудить.
Как итог – мгновенный результат, с большим удовольствием. Дети пришли почти с 0 и через 1.5 года говорят на свободном разговорном.

When I started learning English with James my speaking skills were so poor, that I asked him to work on General English instead of Marketing. I felt very uncomfortable while speaking. Months were passing by, James was providing me with such complex topics, which I almost never speak about in Russian. I struggled with discussing them. But in 3 months I was able to easily go through a job interview! I haven’t even realised when I became such confident! And James provided me with useful idioms, such expressions that natives use, like “I’m in between jobs” instead of “I don’t work currently”. Also, I want to mention that James is an incredibly interesting person to talk to! He has more than 20 years of travelling experience and so many brilliant stories to tell from there! So I’m very happy that I could learn from him!

Business English was what I wanted, But not just business I wanted pacifically Law. And James organized a perfect course for me and gave me all the vocabulary and grammar used for law. We studied for 6 months. What I like about James is he will just do things as and when needed. We work on my pronunciation and fluency and confidence It only took 6 months to get my fluency perfect. James is a great language coach and I advise anyone that choosing James would be the right decision. Really thank you, James
