1. Brain-based:
The Earworms method not only provides the words, phrases and grammar that you need for language learning, it also actively anchors them into the auditory cortex of your brain! It’s much more than language courses, it's language learning! Learn French, Spanish, English, Italian, German or Dutch listening to music lyrics.
2. Music is the key:
Using music as the medium to learn languages is not only fun, it is also effective. Firstly, music puts the learner into the optimum state of consciousness for learning different languages. Secondly, music lyrics learning allows repetition (a prerequisite for language learning). On top of that, music engages and stimulates both hemispheres of the brain, unleashing more learning potential.
3. Chunking:
Instead of language learning in terms of individual words and grammar, the Earworms approach immerses the learner in real-life dialogues and expressions with lyrics. These are broken down into bite-size chunks, practiced rhythmically with music and then reconstructed into full sentences. This gives the learner a strong sense of how real language courses are constructed and learning French, Spanish, German, Italian, English and other different languages and their vocabulary becomes easy.

Brilliant way to learn Spanish!

I’m totally addicted and feel compelled to tell the world! This is the way to learn for me. It’s so easy and even funny! I can remember more in a few days than months on another more highly rated, more expensive language app, I’ve cancelled that subscription! Earworms just stick in my brain. I can be in the shower, not thinking about Spanish and phrases come to mind. It’s really weird but who cares if it works! I reckon you could learn any facts like this to music, they’re really on to something. The level is beginner to intermediate, the speech is natural, the voices enchanting and the phrases are actually useful! I’m truly amazed at my progress. I can’t wait to start the next course!

Thank you for your 5* rating! We really appreciate your kind words & finding the time to write a review. You're not the first to feel addicted! Earworms burrows its way into the brain like a catchy tune or jingle, before you know it you're speaking Spanish or French or Italian, even Japanese and Chinese is easy with Earworms language learning method. We suspect the Earworms euphoria you were experiencing a few months ago has motivated you to level up and continue your Spanish learning. We somehow missed saying thank you to you then, apologies for this, GRACIAS :-) The Earworms team

So catchy, much easier to learn and retain

Love this app and the ease of downloading the course notes is great. Also love the pronunciation guides and the tips for memorising certain words and phrases. Am hoping that developers will continue to develop and add more content. Love the pricing model as well - no perpetual subscription required, just one off purchasing plus discount if you buy a bundle. Special request - please please please could you consider adding more Cantonese content. So difficult to find true Cantonese language content, especially conversational, and more would be brilliant.

Thank you for your 5 star rating and review! We’re delighted you’ve found success learning with our unique musical language learning method! Chinese, Japanese, Greek or even Arabic is easily learned with our special music. It’s catchy like any other earworm and because you’re only listening, it’s without effort…. The language learners dream!

We work to customer demand, every request we receive for a language or level via our App furthers the position of that language in the production schedule. Thanks for your Cantonese request.

Have a great day and please do help us spread the word. The earworms team.

Great app plus excellent customer service!

Have used this app to learn Arabic and have Turkish now. Better than others I’ve tried - done Arabic 1 and 2, when is 3 coming out?!
Had an issue with the Turkish but the customer service has been brilliant, by far the best from any IT company for sure, very friendly, prompt and effective with great instructions. Thanks to Stephanie! Highly recommend.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your wonderful review on the Earworms Language Learning App and for mentioning the customer support you've received. Both Arabic and Turkish are considered difficult languages to learn, we're delighted you've found success with Earworms. Your request for Arabic Vol. 3 has been noted and passed on to the production team. Thanks again. The Earworms team
