Learning a language is about the multiple and different ways used at one go – its an assault from all directions! Yes, this means homework and books. But also it involves the immersion through, chatting, games, movies and of course songs!
Songs are a grand way to go as your child learns Hindi. This is because the songs are catchy and short. Meaning non-Hindi speakers are able to simply repeat the words and look legitimate.
The most essential part of learning any language is speaking with natives. The second being self-study. And songs are a grand way of self-study since they make the study sessions enjoyable.

Find What Is Kid- Appropriate
It is the hardest part since nobody writes about it!
Certainly, what all the kid’s songs that were traditionally learned do not meet the criteria. Also, Bollywood might talk about a lot more than “Pyaar” and pining for each other. So the way to go is old-school. At least the songs won’t be offensive.
How you can Teach Through Songs
Introduce only the first couple of lines of that song and the chorus (do not show videos when it is not needed!) Then give the meaning of the keywords. For example, “Mera Joota Hai Japani” – inform that “mera joota” is Hing for “my shoe,” and “Japani” is “Japanese”
Note: Use some actions for each word – and now watch as the kids get sucked in the current of Indian music (actions work since it helps them remember words better).
