When Germans like a songs so much that they can’t get it out of their head they call it ‘Ohrwurm’ which means ‘earworm’.
So when I was followed by sombody called @earwormsmtb on twitter a while ago, I was intrigued and checked out their website and quite liked what I saw. Two German beginners CDs (they do other languages, too), each with “200+ essential words and phrases anchored into your long-term memory with great music”. At the Language Show I saw their CDs and bought them. As I teach a beginners class at the moment, I decided to try out one of the CDs but, of course, wanted to listen to it beforehand.
And I was hooked!
I was listening to the whole CD – and I don’t even need to learn German 😉
The tunes are catchy, the phrases are useful and you can’t help it – you just have to listen to the CDs.
I still think that you should have proper lessons to learn German, but theses CDs can be a good aditional aid when learning a language. If you want to try them, take them for a testdrive. Enjoy!
