Using Songs In Teaching English


1 039 просмотров

Everyone likes songs. You just put on CD and press "play", don`t you?

Probably the most important thing is to choose a song in which the lyrics are clear. Choose a singer with a nice clear voice, like Frank Sinatra, for example. The recording should also be a good one.

There`s also the issue of whether or not the language is a suitable level-difficulty. And it is also a question od whether your students like the song.


What do you do with a song?

1. Do some listening exercises. In planning what you are going to do with a song you want to think about productive pre-, during- and post-listening tasks that are going to be language rich.

2. If you want to do some "fill-in-the-gaps exercises", please do it. But remember, you should do the exersice with the blanking words at the end of the line, but not the words that they rhyme with. It will be difficult for your students.

3. You could also try giving them, say, 12 chunks of the song, and get them to do it (before listening) as a "jigsaw reading" exercise, which they could then confirm during listening.
