Do you struggle with remembering new words and phrases?
Believe me. You aren’t the only one. I have been learning Spanish the last few months and didn’t use the most efficient system. All the new words I write in my notebook are still waiting for a repetition. I write them in my notebook, have a look at them one day later and then I forget most of them (What a pitty!).
I wanted to create a system for me that worked. I didn’t want to do boring repetitions where I open one page and just try to remember the words. I needed to pack them in a conversation, story, or a song. With this method, it was significantly easier to remember the words. The connection to a specific context made it much easier to and all the words were packed in sentences. This made it much easier to use the words in sentences because they were presented that way.
The first song I picked for you is Lieblingsmensch by the singer Namika. She has a clear pronunciation and it is easy to sing along -even for beginners.
I added the German and English lyrics at the end of the page. The English translation is not a word-by-word translation – please be aware of that
