This is an excellent resource for all ESL students and anyone who wants to hear classic American songs. One of the most important aspects of an accent is the intonation or "speech music." Learning through songs lets you hear the rhythm and pitch changes of actual music, which you can then apply to your own speech. Each song is written in both regular English and a phonetic transcription. This lets you see and hear the true pronunciation of the songs, as well as the word connections and intonation patterns.
You can use your iPhone headphones to listen, record on the digital recorder, and compare yourself with the model audio. (Works great on the iPod, but the recorder doesn’t appear on it. Sorry!)
It’s fun! It’s easy! It’s effective!
