There’s nothing like a catchy tune to make things stick in your mind. Lirica is an app that takes that idea and applies it to learning a foreign language. The app takes the music of artists like Enrique Iglesias and Elvis Crespo and uses it to help you learn Spanish vocabulary and grammar.
With each lesson, you learn parts of the language, similar to how you might with Duolingo or another language-learning app, but using music. Each lesson includes short games to play where you’re learning what’s actually being said in the song.
You can also just listen to the music with subtitles that show you what’s being said in Spanish or the Spanish with an English translation below it. [Lifehacker annotation]
