In this video, I teach myself the song “Soul Pleurer” (“Soul Cry”) by the Old School French Rap group from Montreal – Dubmatique.
My personal approach to language learning is really quite simple.
- I familiarize myself with the component sounds (phonemes) of the language.
- I use Rhythmic Phonetic Training to teach myself the lyrics of rap songs to hone my mimicry skills.
- I immerse myself in the language and learn through mimicry.
In future videos, I will show you exactly this last step of mimicry actually goes down in practice. I will also discuss how I went about the first step of familiarizing myself with the component sounds of French.
