Internalizing lyrics of Lurgan songs

Listening to Irish language popular songs isn’t just more fun than drilling grammar concepts it is also away more effective. But there is a difference between simply hearing Irish language songs and actually learning from them. There is considerable evidence that shows how music can help second language learners.

Lurgan’s lyrics rely heavily on everyday language & colloquial speech. They contain a lot of useful vocabulary, phrases and expressions. The language used is casual and readily usable. It also familiarizes pronunciation and understanding of the language’s rhythm, tone and beat.

Many of the words and sound patterns within a song are repetitive which makes it easier for them to stick in your mind.

All of this will help you easily memorize vocabulary and phrases. In fact, after a relatively short time using LurganLingo you will find it almost impossible to forget them.

LurganLingo is supported by three platforms:

  1. Spotify:   The objective is to be able to sing along with the playlist on Spotify
  2. YouTube:  Has lyric videos of the 8 songs
