Why use songs in class?

Posted on November 21, 2012 in Why use songs by sibels  Tagged

Music, as an international language, takes a very important part in our lives; especially in our students’ lives. While reading a book, driving a car, having a cup of coffee with our friends, don’t you listen to music; doesn’t it change the atmosphere of the place; doesn’t it change your mood easily? So, why not use songs in class while students are reading a text, writing an essay, filling in the blanks? What’s more, why not use songs that are popular among our students in class to present or practise a grammar goal in English or teach vocabulary or even practise different skills?

 

Here, in this blog you will find a variety of songs with their teaching ideas and handouts. Your feedback and contributions are highly appreciated.
