It is said that memorizing the lyrics of a song is like riding a bike, because you haven’t probably listened to that song for a long time, but you still remember the lyrics. It has always been in your brain, but you didn’t know until you listened to the song. That is the reason why we recommend learning through songs so much. It is an easy and funny way to remember words and grammatical constructions that will probably end up using. But this is not the only method!
