I personally have worked singing music I like low speed with its subtitle could say that
helped me to familiarize myself with the words but not understand the context very well.

I think it could be something like Anki because you can do many repetitions without
getting bored.


my tools I use are Youtube and musiXmatch to find music with lyrics.

If you listen to a lot of music, use it. I personally still don't know every word bands
like Opeth use in their lyrics, hehe, but when I don't know something I deem important I
just check it - be it a word or a grammar structure.
Consider using lyricstraining.com too.

It all might be not that efficient, and I wouldn't recommend to specifically learn
vocabulary through music, but if you listen to it for enjoyment you might as well learn
something new from it.

I'm a strong believer in learning through music :) See this wikia article.

Of course it shouldn't be your only source of learning, but especially for beginners it's the most accessible kind of native materials.

I also think it might not be super efficient, and sometimes word stress and even
pronunciation can be subject to artistic manipulation, but when you enjoy something it
tends to produce much better results than sticking to a "fail-proof" method that you
detest. I would definitely encourage using songs to learn vocabulary (I've had positive
results), just be sure to double check the applicability of what you've learned before
putting it to use in other contexts.

Having the lyrics of the song handy is useful. I had a French teacher at school who
sometimes played tapes of songs in class. He was especially partial to Maurice Chevalier.
I wasn't, but the general idea is a good one.

I think it's best not to look at the lyrics at least sometimes. Listen to different versions of the same song before you do.

I'm learning Chinese at the university http://dir.tsu.ru/, but I do not like the songs,
don't know why.
