    Talking How can music help people learn English?

    Hello! Does someone have some arguments on how music can help us learn English?

    Re: How can music help people learn English?

    There is some evidence to show that some people learn better when the information is set to music. It has something to do with pathways in the brain. It's probably the reason I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday but I can remember all the lyrics to hundreds of my favourite songs, no matter how old the song.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Suggestopedia is a teaching method that uses music to help people learn. I did a course in it many years ago with this trainer: http://www.new-renaissance.com/lonny/index-en.html

    Holy Cr*p! Here I thought Bob Ross died back in '95, but he apparently just changed his name to Lonny Gold, shaved his beard (keeping the 'stache and 'fro) and became a Suggestopedic trainer instead of a painting coach.

    Does Lonny ever talk about happy little trees and bushes?
