Learn cabeza, hombros, rodillas, pies

Research have shown that there is a strong link between music and the effective learning of a foreign language. Languages share with music some elements like rhythm, tone, pitch, volume and pauses. As a consequence, songs and foreign languages can both be learned through repeated exposure. This can facilitates literal memory symbolization for spoken foreign language phrases.

For example, when there is a song that has foreign words that are difficult to understand at all, it is still possible to grasp what the tune intends to express. Music creates a sticky structure that helps to extract key information when necessary.  When you incorporate conscious repetition to that context is when the learning outcomes are visible.
