Admit it you have long wanted to learn a few new skills or learn a foreign language, haven’t you? Why not use forced quarantine and isolation to make your dreams come true? We will need karaoke, desire and a little free time, which is exactly what we have. It will be fun activities in which all family members, including children, can take part.
One of the main problems faced by people learning a foreign language is the lack of language practice. This is a fairly common problem, and coaches advise newcomers to watch serials in English, listen to podcasts, or sing karaoke. Lyrical, poetic presentation makes memory much easier. No tedious serration – sing and learn in the process!
Well-known language centres such as SpeakUp London practise karaoke training. They practice karaoke battles in the class for the best performance of English songs. The winner gets pizza. The main prize goes to all participants – improvement of spoken speech.
Karaoke gives the opportunity both to master the basic level of a foreign language and to master popular expressions and idioms. In addition, this method allows you to hear the natural pronunciation of different people far from the ideal that is used in other audiotapes. This makes it easier to hear speech, to understand entire sentences and to separate individual words from spoken speech.

The process of learning foreign languages is considerably simplified with the home karaoke system Evolution. No third-party applications will be required since you already have them at your disposal:
– A huge song base (over 85,000 tracks) in dozens of world languages. You can easily find songs of various levels of difficulty, for example in English or Spanish
– The EvoClub app where you can read and translate the lyrics in advance
– The original music videos are in 4K resolution, which will allow you to review the performer’s articulation in detail to sing in unison with him.
Start learning foreign languages with songs that are well known and that are often played in your player. It would be easier for you to have a familiar melody in your head, which you have heard a hundred times and have repeatedly sung along.
Listen to the original song before you start singing it in karaoke. Sing with the right words, with the right tone, taking your time and pausing in the right places. Your task at this stage is not to get the maximum performance score, but to feel the unfamiliar words flowing through you. To secure the result, sing again, this time as much from memory as possible, trying not to look at the TV screen.
During the first weeks of “home karaoke courses”, you will significantly increase the vocabulary, improve the grammar, and learn a certain number of conversational expressions that are used in life. It will be much easier for you to build phrases in a foreign language. The songs will also help you to understand the foreign culture: how native speakers think, what they care about, how they express themselves in joy and anxiety.
Take care, sing karaoke and make the quarantine useful!
