Does English song helps you learn English?

English songs have been very popular for people around the world for many decades.

From Elvis Presley to Ricky Martin , from the Beattles to Eminen and from Natalie cole to Britney Spears have all been sitting in everyone's heart, even for people who don't speak English.... even for people who speak zero English.

Should you have better English skills if you listen to English songs for a long time? If so, what skills should you improve?

From my experiences, some people listen to English songs for 20-30 years but still don't accomplish any good English skills. Some people choose English songs to be the "main learning approach", which most are failed.

Listenning to English songs does not help you to speak English fluently. It does help you gain some vocabularlies but, yet, most of them are unusual ones that you don't use in your everyday life.

You won't learn the sentence "It is a complicate project. We really need to meet the deadline." in any English songs (believe me.) All you will hear are only love, passion, infection, hate and blue, for the feeling not the color.

People like using English songs to practice English skill because it's easy and enjoy. They think that sitting in the car listenning to English song day by day can improve their English skills. It is actually not.

learn english from music

You will definitely not improve your listenning skill becasue normal people don't speak with melody. People don't talk like Eminen song (well, actually, some teenagers do.) You can't get yourself familiar with English pronunciation or accent just from listenning to English songs. The words that they pronouce in the songs are not the words that you will hear in your everyday life. It's oftenly even confused you more how English is pronouced.

I would fully encourage you to watch English movie, radio news or other normal talks, but not music. Of course, you can consume it for fun but not the aim to improve your English skills. Having good English skill is not that easy. Remember you should go hard to go high.
