Listening to catchy songs in Spanish can greatly help you improve your accentBut not only that. It's an excellent way to develop vocabulary, grammar, fluency and confidence too!


Well, firstly, it’s fun! And the brain learns better when we’re enjoying what we’re doing. And songs are a very natural way to get an ear for the language.

Listening to songs in Spanish help you retain more vocabulary because of the catchy lyrics and rhythm. After just a couple of repetitions, you get familiar with the sounds, the intonation and the pace.

And if it’s a song that you like, it will get stuck in your head… which is a great thing for learning Spanish! Follow along with the lyrics and the connection between sounds and words will be instant 😉

Because no matter what level you’re at, songs will help you improve pronunciation, broaden vocabulary and deepen grammar understanding.

Finally, here are some tips to make the most of learning Spanish with songs:

  1. Choose songs that you like! Songs are to be listened to over and over again so the words stick to your head. Regardless of your level, try them all and focus on the ones that you like the most.  
  2. Sing out loud! Singing is great for joining words, sentences and improving pronunciation. This will help your confidence as when we sing we are more relaxed and have less inhibitions.  
  3. If you’re a beginner, first look out for words that you know and recognise, then look up those that you don’t know so you can expand your vocabulary step by step.  
  4. If you’re intermediate or advanced, you could listen to the song and jot down what you hear and then check how much you got right! You will be developing your listening and writing skills at the same time! 😉
