Use headphones: YouTube and other streaming sites and music resources often have low volume and poor audio quality. Using headphones will help ensure that you catch all the words clearly rather than playing a guessing game as the song plays on.使用耳机:YouTube,其他媒体网站或者音乐资源中的音频质量都不高,音量都很低。使用耳机将有助于捕捉到所有的单词以避免在播放音乐的时候像在玩一个猜谜游戏。

Sing along: Simply listening to English music can do a lot for your understanding of English, but it never improves your spoken skills. To practice the words to songs yourself, you can sing the lyrics along with the music. There are also special karaoke videos you can find online that allow you to sing along to a version of the music without lyrics.跟唱:单纯地听英文歌曲对英语理解大有帮助但是这并不能提高你的口语能力。为了练习歌词,你可以跟着音乐一起唱。此外还可以在网上找一些卡拉OK的视频,这样就可以在没有歌词的情况下跟着歌词一起唱了。

Pay attention to your mouth, tongue and lips: Notice how your mouth moves while you copy the pronunciation of the singers. This will help you transfer your English skills to normal conversations without music.注意嘴,舌头和嘴唇:模仿歌手发音的时候要注意嘴部是如何张合的。这将有助于在没有音乐的情况下将英语技能转到正常的对话中去。

Replay difficult lines: The benefit of digital technology is that you can easily go back to a specific point in a song hundreds of times and listen to a part of a song over and over. If you find that a line has some difficult words, be sure to replay them so you can memorize them.反复播放较难的歌词:数字技术的好处就是可以在一首几百行的歌词中容易的找到某一句特定的歌词,然后反复地听。如果发现某一行歌词有生词,一定要反复播放以确保记住它们。

Practice speaking lyrics: You will not be singing most of the time you are using the English language! So after you have listened to a song, find the lyrics of it and read them out loud just like you would read a book out loud. This will help you learn to pronounce and use the words as you would actually do in conversation.练习读歌词:使用英语的时候,大部分的时间都不是在唱歌。所以,听英文歌曲的时候,找到歌词,像读一本书一样大声朗读。这将有助于你发音,并且帮助你在交谈中自如的使用单词。

Have fun singing along!开心地跟着音乐唱吧!
