English and foreign language learners Advantages of listening to music
How to use music effectively in English or foreign language learning classroom? Certain types of music listening have many other benefits that go far beyond teaching and learning, as discussed in an earlier article. The effect of music and songs in the ELT is well documented. Now, let's continue with a brief overview of the five additional benefits of listening to music.
Further Advantages of Listening to Music
o Reducing Errors
Better integration and function of brain and hemisphere improves concentration and ability to think. This immediately affects our normal operation, reducing the number of defective resolutions and responses to problems. Whatever you are thinking or doing is simply better.
o Help with digestion
Imagine the most beautiful, most wonderful and most expensive restaurant. The food will be exclusive. Do you play music in the restaurant? Very likely, but Heavy Metal Rock, Rap, Hip Hop or Acid Jazz? Almost certainly not. Music has played a form that supports a pleasant emotional and digestive state. Music has long been used to improve the dining experience.
o Helps control moods
As we have long touched, our mood and state of mind can be influenced or changed by using music. To help people relax in the lifts, the music comes in. The same is true for medical offices, waiting areas for medical and dental clinics and even airports. Those who are afraid of altitude, rain, flight, or dentist are a little relaxed and relaxed.
o Reduce the pace of activity
Do you work with music? I and many other professionals often. When I write, the Beethoven music station usually plays in the background. In other cases, I could place a plain jazz in the CD-ROM drive that affected me. When I need it out of time and need to focus quickly, faster music at Salsa will come to my CD player. Fast food restaurants want to eat fast so they play faster pace music in the background.
o Supporting Noise and Disturbance Insulation
If you cannot control external sounds and noise, you can try to place some music to help mentally distract your attention. Our ears can be selective, not what we hear, but what we choose to actually listen to. Playing the desired game overrides the distractions and noises that may be in the background.
t The benefits of listening to music are not only in the EFL or foreign language learning class, but also in many other aspects of our daily lives.
