What a great resource! I love how you can repeat each line of the song to encourage learners to listen.

I have played show tunes (musicals) for years as a way to learn new vocabulary. I love them because they are wholesome and the text is clearly annunciated. This new resource can help expand my repertoire.

This is an old technique and I can say from my own experience that songs do not always allow you to memorize words correctly. I myself taught English as a foreign language and have been teaching it for more than twenty years. When people ask me how best to learn it fast, I just don't have any answers. Students don't understand that studying for a year or three years is not the same, and it takes a tremendous investment. Many learn English so they can learn other languages abroad. But all I can advise is to buy a https://www.amazon.com/German-Frequency-Dictionary-Vocabulary-German-English/dp/9492637308 dictionary, and try to learn words, terminology and vocabulary first.
