IWTYAL 005: How can I use vocab from songs in conversation?

itunesButtonToday's episode features a question from Kevin: “How can I take vocabulary from songs and use it in my conversations?”

In this episode:

Strategies for learning songs:

  1. Identify key words and phrases from the song that I want to be able to use. Then put them in a flashcard app.
  2. Keep a list of the words I want to be able to use and keep it next to me during a language exchange/lesson
  3. Use the vocabulary for writing. For example, write a monologue/mini-speech, then memorise it.
