Or some riveting classical music. Note this works for mundane tasks but I still struggle with what to use when I need to learn.
I tried Sabaton today and just stayed away from English. It really helped for about 10 minutes, but then I heard a few (Swedish) words very clearly and wondered what the song was about so it broke my stride. Those focus tones you can find online have sometimes worked for a bit, too, but they rapidly become irritating to me. Mozart's Requiem has worked for me before. I haven't used that in a while. Some parts of the Requiem aren't very conducive to learning, but I find most of it is. Would those be pieces you'd be interested in?
