Now you can find a translation of almost any song. I don't see the point in wasting time on this thing. Unless you really like translating songs.

Many people say that by listening to and translating songs in a foreign language, they learn this language. There are more effective ways how to learn italian, for example. I use the lingopie platform because I found that I enjoy watching Italian TV shows the most. Thus, I'm not learning the language in which books and textbooks are written, but the one that real people speak right now.
