Sometimes it’s HARD to understand the lyrics of songs when you’re listening to it for the first time. There’s so much information coming your way – the melody, rhythm, stress, and of course words.

Yet, I think it’s such a great tool to use when practicing English.
It strengthens not only our vocabulary but also our listening skills and pronunciation – especially when it comes to rhythm and connected speech.

In this episode I’ll use a huge hit by Lizzo, About Damn Time, and really break it down and explore the beat, the stress and reductions, and everything that makes this song so awesome.
