Lyrical Learning: LyricFind Pairs Up with Linguician
Austria-based language learning company Linguician is teaming up with the world’s leading lyrics provider LyricFind for one clear reason: Lyrics make it fun and effective to learn and perfect another language.
Music has been used as a memory booster since time immemorial, and its power is still in full force. Not only do lyrics have a knack for getting stuck in our heads, but they’re the perfect enhancement to vocabulary acquisition.
Linguician, available for free online, with a mobile version expected to launch later this year, harnesses this power elegantly. Users can select from a wide catalog of music videos, picking their favourites in their target language. The service introduces users to the lyrics, letting them learn new words and expressions. It then guides them through fun games that prompt them to fill in the blanks or choose the correct translations all while the language learner moves in time to the beat.
"With Linguician, the user can unlock the associative power of music for language acquisition,” explains Alexander Rietzler, Founder and CEO of Linguician. “Learning new vocabularies suddenly becomes possible without feeling the effort." The app’s strongest language is currently English, but it also supports language learning in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, and French. “New videos are being added daily,” adds Rietzler.
LyricFind supplies the legal lyrics, giving the platform access to the dozens of languages the company has vetted and licensed from hundreds of publishers around the world. It is an original use of the service’s product, one that shows the full, diverse possibilities for lyrics in the digital age.
“We are excited to partner with a company that takes language learning to the next level,” says Roy Hennig, LyricFind’s Vice President of Sales. “By using lyrics as a means of teaching, Linguician forges a new and unique path for lyric licensing.”
LyricFind is the world’s leader in licensed lyrics with 100+ clients worldwide including, Google, YouTube, Amazon, Pandora, Deezer, Microsoft, Shazam, SoundHound, The Recording Academy, Billboard and many others. LyricFind licenses from over 4,000 music publishers, including all the majors: Universal Music Publishing Group, Sony/ATV, Warner/Chappell Music Publishing and Kobalt. It has built a quality-controlled, vetted database of lyrics available for licensing and synchronized technology in 100 countries. Behind the scenes, LyricFind tracks, reports, and pays royalties to publishers on a song-by-song and territory-by-territory basis.
Linguician is the first platform that offers individualized and personalized language learning content based on music and lyrics. It is dedicated to designing a language learning experience that is as entertaining and playful as possible.
