Lyrics Training Improves Your Foreign Language Skills Through Music

Lyrics Training is an easy and fun way to learn a foreign language through son lyrics.  You can choose a Youtube hosted video, select one of six possible languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch) and a mastery level. As the song plays, you fill in words that you hear.
It's surprisingly effective, and much more difficult than you think.
The choices of songs is very limited- so far Spanish has the best selection.
French only has Aicha (no Yelle!!) and German has the most pathetic showing of all, featuring only Rammstein's Du Hast. 

Still, it's worth a try!
