Surly, songs in my language. Songs in English literally has no meaning.

I agree with the Greek the important is if the music's good.

hi, everyone... I think this is a great way to learn to speak English

we can learn English throw listening like children

i prefer english rap so ı agree with rapper. But i never listening German rap because that is too hard. German language is so hard and heavy. my advice listen to Joyner Lucas with you.

i prefer hear to songs that words good and it give me a positive energy, i mostly hear to arabic songs, but now i am hearing to songs english because i will learn english language.

I agree with the Japanese guy in the podcast; lyrics are important. So I like to listen to songs in Arabic because I understand them better and I can easily sing along. However, I enjoy listening to popular English pop songs from time to time.

I'm learning a lot of English on my course and on here as well.
I've done the same as the teacher Tom, but instead I add new words I use to add on my Ankidroid all the new phrases that I learn on my course, it's a very nice one!!
I prefer to listen to music in English because if I do it like this I can improve my listening comprehension and learn new vocabulary.

ı agree with you

Well! as I am learning english so I prefer songs in english! It's a good way to practice it.

If I could meet a famous sure that would be Young K (he's a kpop singer from DAY6 band), because he has a beautiful voice.

Talking about songs I don't have exactly a preference to listen. I like Brazilian songs, especially brazilian rock and MPB, but also I love english songs, they helped me A LOT in the past when I started to learn english.
