The Best Online Karaoke Sites For English Language Learners

The Best Online Karaoke Sites For English Language Learners
I’ve used music a lot with English Language Learners. Singing feels much less threatening to many who are learning a new language. Karaoke is a good language-development activity, and there are quite a few karaoke sites on the Internet. I thought it would be a good topic for a short “The Best…” list. In order to make it on this list, a site has to be available free-of-charge (or at least some of its resources have to be free), easy-to-use, require no download, and allow students — either alone or in a group — to record themselves singing. A link to their performance can then be posted on a student or teacher website. There are only a few sites that meet that criteria. SMS Tunes is another similar site. Sing Snap is the newest addition to this list. KaraSongs doesn’t allow students to record themselves, but they have tons of great videos showing the lyrics to popular songs with instrumental accompaniment.

Seven Songs for Teaching Past Simple I have created a list of songs, which are perfect for teaching Past Simple tense in English.
