It really works! Download the app to test it, GRATIS!

1. Brain-based:
The Earworms method not only provides the words, phrases and grammar that you need to acquire a foreign language, it also actively anchors them into the auditory cortex of your brain - ready for instant recall! It's much more than a language course, it's a language learning strategy!
2. Music is the key:
Using music as the medium is not only fun and entertaining, it is also highly effective. Firstly, music primes the neural networks and puts the learner into the optimum state of consciousness for learning, the so-called Alpha state; relaxed but at the same time receptive. Secondly, music allows for repetition (a prerequisite when learning a language) without monotony. On top of that, music engages and stimulates both right and left hemispheres of the brain, unleashing more learning potential.
These features together lead to a much higher rate of retention than with traditional learning methods.
3. Chunking:
Instead of seeing a language in terms of individual words and grammar, the Earworms approach immerses the learner in real-life dialogues and expressions. These are then broken down into smaller bite-size chunks, practiced rhythmically with music and then reconstructed into full sentences. This gives the learner a strong sense of how real language is constructed and used.

* Developed by language teaching experts.
* Convenient. 6-9 minute tracks. Listen and learn track by track, any time, anywhere.
* Audio-visual experience with 'karaoke-like' live text feature.
* Specific unambiguous goals. 200+ optimally selected sets of words, phrases and structures per level.
* Measurable. Easy tracking of progress.
* Achievable. Using music as a memory catalyst and fun factor means an extremely high retention rate - usually more than 90% in tests.
* Target language spoken by native speakers - so correct pronunciation is acquired automatically.
* Relevant. Carefully chosen content-rich language. Based on the CEF (Common European Framework) and immediately useful to the learner.
* Time bound. The musical memory method enables real rapid progress. E.g. you can learn to count up to 999 in Mandarin in an hour (!) or retain and recall all 200+ words, phrases and structures in one level within a couple of weeks.
* Educational discounts available. Visit

French + German + Italian + Spanish (European) + Spanish (Lat. American) + Mandarin + Cantonese + Japanese + Arabic + Portuguese (European) + Portuguese (Brazilian) + Russian + Greek + Turkish + Polish + English + Dutch

Currently there are 3 levels (Volumes) available, which will take you up to intermediate level (CEF level A2).
* Volume 1. Within a few hours of listening to this volume you'll be able to deal with real-life situations like: taking a taxi, at the hotel, at the restaurant, requesting, polite phrases, finding your way, numbers, dealing with problems and so on.
* Volume 2. This course will soon have you talking about yourself (past, present and future), chatting and even flirting!
* Volume 3. Here you learn more useful everyday situations while going more into the structure, the grammatical rules of the language.

NOTE: the app includes a demo of full tracks of all languages available – and is free to download. You can then purchase the full courses from within the app.

Easy and Effective

The app itself is really easy to navigate, and I find that having the lessons set to music really helps the vocabulary stick in my brain. So far I’ve tried French and Spanish, and I’ll definitely be using the German one too before we go to Germany on holiday next year.

The app is easy to use and I’ve actually learnt Greek! If you’re anything like me and struggle learning a language I really recommend earworms! I don’t usually leave reviews on apps but I had to let people know how easy it has been to learn a language using earworms!

I have just completed Vol 1 and I am not saying I can remember everything but I can remember a lot and find the app very enjoyable to use and better than any other app I have used. The music makes such a big difference.
