Lyrics Training is a fun website where you can practice your listening, reading, vocabulary, and writing skills with popular music videos. You can choose from music videos in British, American, and Australian accents. Want a new way to study? Try Lyrics Training!
Let’s take a look at how it works.
Choose a music video
First, go to lyricstraining.com. You can sign up for an account, or play without an account.
Select a music video from the list, or search for a song or singer/band in the search bar.
Select your level
After you choose a music video, you will see this screen. Each song has a different word count.
Choose if you want to write in the words or multiple choice
Finally, there are two ways to play the game. For your first time, I suggest the multiple-choice option. If you are more confident, try writing in the words.
How it works: try to write in the words after you hear them. If you miss a word, the music video will stop to give you time to write.
How does Lyrics Training help me learn English?
Listening skills: on this website, you can practice listening to a variety of accents. Lyrics can be difficult to understand, even for native speakers, so it’s really good practice for careful listening.
Vocabulary: many singers use slang, phrasal verbs, and expressions in their songs. These words can build your vocabulary and help you understand native speakers.
Reading skills: you are reading the lyrics as the singer sings them. You also need to read words if you choose the multiple-choice option.
Writing skills: if you choose the writing option, you need to write in the missing words and spell them correctly.
I love using this website in my classroom, but Lyrics Training is also great for studying at home. If you are tired of studying grammar, take a break, and try out this website!
