TEACHING WITH SONGS

Teaching with Songs is organised into two categories according to whether they have been chosen to present ,or further revise ,a point of Grammar or Vocabulary or because , at that time ,my students or myself fancied the song.

They have also  been awarded  “hearts” according to the difficulty of the song or the proposed activity, being Five Hearts the maximun difficulty.

Bear in mind that most videos have been embedded form Youtube so they might be no longer available.(though , I bet it won’t be difficult to find them again)

♦GRAMMAR OR VOCABULARY RELATED

♦JUST BECAUSE

  1. Teaching and singing are two joyful activities. When they are combined, both give more benefits. When one is done without the other, the activity is tasteless 🙂

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more. You’re more than welcome to use the activities on this page.

  3. Hi:)

    I’ve got a 15 year old daughter who is learning English as a second language and I’m sure she ‘ll benefit a lot:) We are from Turkey, THANK YOU !

  4. Yo a veces hago dictados musicales, los alumnos cogen la letra completa de una canción, por ejemplo lo hemos hecho con “imagine” y con “feeling good” en las voces de adolescentes como ellos de concursos como la Voz o Britain´s got talent. They love watching those videos and taking the lyrics, I do too.

  5. Teaching with songs is a great method! For the dictation exercise you only have to choose the songs really well. Thanks for dropping by!

  6. I’m a teacher in Juárez México and I use songs to teach also. I use Billy Joel’s ” She’s Always a Woman” for simple present third person and for can/ can’t.

  10. I use songs in almost every class, whether adult education or graduate studies. They can be used to introduce a theme, to dig deeper into profound subjects, to revise grammar and vocabulary, to create new lyrics … the possibilities are endless!
