Abstract: Informal Vocabulary mastery has always been one of the very complex tasks in the foreign language learning; it is regarded as a challenge for both teachers and learners. Due to its difficulty, students have problems to improve their level of communication in real situations. Actually, the current study is meant to explore the importance of embedding lyrics of songs in the classroom to enhance the informal vocabulary of second year students of English at Larbi Ben M'hidi University. It aims at investigating the extent to which the integration of lyrics promote learners' level in informal vocabulary by inspecting learners' attitudes towards their use. Additionally, we endeavor to raise students' awareness on how lyrics can contribute to developing informal vocabulary proficiency inside and outside the classroom. In this research, It has been hypothesized that the second year EFL learners at Larbi Ben M'hidi University would have positive attitudes towards the role of lyrics in enhancing their informal vocabulary. To achieve the objective of this study, we relied on a descriptive method that focuses on quantitative framework through the administration of a questionnaire as a data collection tool. The findings show that the students are very interested in developing their informal vocabulary load using songs with lyrics as a new learning style, which in turn would enhance two important skills, listening and reading, in the classroom.
