Eat. Listen to music. Learn a language. Rinse. Repeat.

Of course you can add more to the in-betweens of the routine, but listening to music is a great and effective way to immerse yourself in the language you’re learning like English. Let’s face it, there’s more to music than its head-bobbing beats and its poetic lyrics. And that’s because when you're listening to music, you're picking up on expressions and learning how they're used and pronounced. Talk about killing two birds with one stone right?

If you're looking for some new tunes to give you a watermelon sugar high, then I've got some wonderful news for you! Our dearly beloved and golden sunflower, aka Harry Styles, just released his third album called Harry’s House.

Harry’s House contains a collection of thirteen tracks that are simple, sweet, and maybe even sexy to your ears. These unapologetically pops of music are perfect for welcoming the summer season and for learning a new language by the swimming pool, while sipping grape juice or a refreshing glass of water.

So when you’re at your Harry’s House listening party, pay attention to the colorful lyrics. And feel free to add these mushy and gushy phrases to your glossary. You'll not only learn about clever metaphors and relatable references, but you'll also learn how to see things from a different perspective.

If you’re ready to strut off this language learning and listening session with our dearest Harry Styles, check out this quick tour of thirteen vocabulary words from Harry’s House. Btw, totally digging what you’ve done to the place, Harry!
