Language and music are kindred spirits. Both have rhythm, tone, melody, pitch, volume and pauses.

Just as one can differentiate music through these elements, a language can be defined by the same. They can both be learned through repeated exposure. They are so closely related that many scholars have begun considering the possibility that language is actually a subset of music.

A language then can be considered, in essence, a group of people bellowing the same song. As language learners, we can definitely use this strong music-language connection to our benefit.

So use music to help you memorize, to learn vocabulary in context and to create a motivating study mood—and you will see results!
