I read on Adventures of the Directionally Challenged’s blog that one of the ways she learns new languages is to listen to her favourite Disney songs in her new language. I think that this is such an awesome idea especially since most of the foreign language Disney songs on You Tube have subtitles in that language so you can learn the lyrics.
Therefore, I spent this weekend tracking down my favourite Disney songs in German on You Tube. What I found interesting is for some of them how different the lyrics are in German compared to the English language lyrics.
So, if you are interested in adding some Disney songs to your German language learning pack, here are my favourites.
Aladdin – In meiner Welt
Pocahontas – Farbenspiel des Winds
Die Schöne und das Biest – Die Schöne und das Biest
Die Schöne und das Biest – Belle (Unsere Stadt)
Der König der Löwen – Der ewige Kreis
And though this song is not technically Disney, it’s a traditional German lullaby, it is played on Disney Junior here in Germany – and is just so adorable. Thanks to Texasborncologne for sending it to me.
