Learning a language through songs is the aim of the ‘Languages through Music’ project, which combines the pleasure of discovery with the joy of singing. Far from being a minor art, song allows you to go beyond language to discover the culture and history of a people, a region or a community. Each song tells a story through which we can travel, while learning a new vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation, without the stress of a traditional language class. ‘Languages through Music’ offers four online workshops, a playlist and many other resources, to take us on a stimulating intercultural journey and a refreshing learning experience. Organised as part of the Afropolitan Forum, this initiative, created in collaboration with local artists, will focus on African languages – Swahili, Lingala and Kinyarwanda.
