You know those catchy tunes or 'earworms' that you just can't get out of your head? Well, earworms has put this phenomenon to positive use. Gone are the days of learning pressure and frustration at not being able to remember, the experience of many on conventional language courses. In combination with music, this system automatically and effortlessly anchors the phrases you need deeply into your memory.
The idea is as simple as it is old. Before the age of writing, ancient historical events e.g. in the Finnish sagas, were recorded in verse and song form, for easy memorization. In his book 'Songlines' Bruce Chatwin describes how the Australian Aborigines were able to navigate their way across hundreds of miles of desert to their ancestral hunting grounds without maps. And how? The extensive lyrics of their traditional songs were exact descriptions of the routes!
Rhythm and words, i.e. song and verse, have always been a very powerful memory aid, and this is supported by recent scientific research. The advertising industry knows only too well how powerful music can be in getting the message across with brainwashing-like jingles and soundbites.
And, of course, you can upload the lessons to your iPOD or MP3 Player.
