Updated: Sep 17
The most important thing of learning a language is getting more exposure to it. Last time we recommended a few movies that you may be interested in if you are a Chinese learner or if you want to know more about Chinese culture. In this article, we are going to introduce some Chinese pop songs for you!
What are the benefits of learning Chinese from pop songs?
- Normally, the vocabularies in the lyrics of pop songs are usually high-frequency words. Most of which are associated with 'emotion', 'life', 'environment', 'adventure' so it is more self-experienced related and less academic.
-The lyrics are usually repetitive and catchy with the rhyme and tempo. It is very helpful for language learners to memorize the vocabularies and sing along. Singing is one of the best way to practice your speaking skills!
- Music is the therapy! Learning a foreign language could be challenging, maybe a little be stressful, sometimes so what you need is definitely some good songs that you can sing along, dance with it or just simply enjoy the melody.
