Beatles Top List Of Artists Who Help Teach Students English


English language instructors use the Beatles to help foreigners learn the language more than any other musical group, according to a survey conducted by Kaplan International Colleges, which polled over 500 teachers from 40 countries on their teaching methods.

86% of those polled use music as part of the learning process, with 40% of those using the music of the Beatles in particular.

The Fab Four surpassed other popular artists, like Michael Jackson (6%), Bob Marley (5%), Elvis Presley (4%) and One Direction (3%) — by a large margin.

James McCartney, son of Paul, told Kaplan that he was pleased with the results:

"What a great way to learn any language - by learning through music. Music is a universal language that can bridge the traditional language barrier, and the music of the Beatles has always been a bridge of love and communication. I think this is great."
