Learn Chinese with EXO: MSG Playlist #4

MSG Weekly Playlist #4

Spice up your studies and learn Chinese vocabulary with EXO songs. Beyond being more enjoyable, using music instead of flashcards to pick up new vocab also has the added bonus of improving your listening skills. Music is also a great way to study on the go. Unfortunately, few Chinese learning sites online recommend true bops; 小苹果 (the song everyone inextricably recommends) is great for karaoke, but can drive you crazy if you listen to it too many times. So, Mandarin Study Guide will be adding 4 new songs to our Spotify playlist every week. We will post key vocab terms, lyrics, and translations for each song. Most importantly, each song will be enjoyable to listen to – the goal is to stealthy integrate studying into free time, so the music needs to actually be good.

This week’s selections are all from the popular K-Pop group EXO. Their Chinese language songs are just as catchy as the originals and will be stuck in your head for days – you’ll review your new vocab again and again without even trying.

In addition to the key words + translations listed below, flashcards for the key words for week four can be accessed on Quizlet (Quizlet for week one, week two, week three). If you’d like to study the key terms in Anki, follow our importing guide to convert the cards over from Quizlet. Happy listening!

Let us know in the comments below if you’d like us to include any specific songs in next week’s playlist. Or if you decided after this post that using music to learn Chinese isn’t for you, but you’re still looking for ways to study Chinese outside of just using textbook and flashcards, then you should consider using poetry to learn Chinese. Like always, if you enjoyed this post please make sure to share it or pin it!
