Some people think that singing helps people to develop many skills and learning languages are not an exception, whereas others do not agree. They consider it as a useless skill.

In my opinionsinging can help to learn foreign languages. First of all, singing harmonizes a person. For example, it makes a person listen to the rhythm and lyrics of a song and then copy it. This is the same method “language learners” use when they learn languages as children.  Secondly, before singing a song one should memorize it, which means he or she exercises their memorizing skill. Strong memory is an essential part of any learning, especially languages.

At the same timethere are people who believe that singing is useless for learning languages. They are sure that to be successful in learning languages one should just memorize the words and learn grammatical rules.

I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. Memorizing the words and learning grammatical rules are important but at the same time word rhythms and memory that singing develops is even more important.

In conclusionI would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight, singing might seem not really important for learning a foreign language but in actual fact, if one looks closer, it is even more important then just learning words and rules. Thus, I strongly believe singing can substantially help language learners.
