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)

  1. Hi Marcos
    Though I have made some courses about escape rooms , it is not really my thing.
    So, I cannot really help you here.

  2. Dear Cristina,
    a wonderful site, indeed. Very helpful and inspiring.
    I see you have kind of a medal about escape rooms.
    Please, could you give me some tips, advice or guidance about this subject?
    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards, and success!!

  3. You are right. Most of them are no longer working for two reasons.
    1. the URL of the videos seems to be dead
    2. Some exercises were created with Hot Potatoes ( a long time ago), which uses Flash. Now, it seems that most browsers are no longer supporting Flash.
    I will try to update some of the links this summer.

  4. I’m so grateful for everything you post and all this incredible work you share. The whole site has a wealth of resources and is just brilliant to use. THANK YOU!

  5. Hi Cris ! It’s a really nice job, just saw your blog and think it will help not only me but a lot of teachers to improve their activities.

  6. 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!

  7. Hi Veronica! My name is not Claudia, it’s Cristina, as in Blog de Cristina!

  9. Hi Cristina,

  10. 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.

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

  12. 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.

  13. Hi:)
    I came across with your page at facebook by chance and LIKED it a lot:)
    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 !

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

  15. 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 🙂
