Do you speak music - sprichst Du Musik

Idea of Comenius/Grundtvig course 6th of July - 12th of July 2014
Brain research in recent years has confirmed a deep and profound relationship between music and language learning. Also, research indicates that small children are already capable of learning foreign languages.
Listening, perceiving, imitating and creating are basic skills in both language and music.
