New Music And Songs Official Site: | @steviewf SWF is the dream of and moniker of artist, musician, and self-described mystic, Stevie Weinstein-Foner. Stevie’s songs of love and longing roll from his debut album, Let It Be Told, like mantras blasted from the radio of a brightly painted VW van cruising along a metaphysical highway of endless summer. Let It Be Told (out October 8 via Mecca Lecca Recording Co.) was recorded in Memphis, TN at High Low studios, and the album’s soulful declarations are accompanied by a flock of fuzzy guitars, vibrant vocal harmonies, and very singable hooks.

849 FREE ESL Songs For Teaching English Worksheets Music can be a great way to connect with your students. Even students who aren’t fluent in English often know the words of popular songs phonetically, which makes these songs ideal resources for teaching your students certain forms of grammar, as well as vocabulary. Many students are happy to work with the unusual phrasing of song lyrics, because they’re learning new meanings for a piece of music that already has meaning in their lives. You might never have noticed it before, but many songs’ lyrics involve just one single tense - which means that as soon as you find a song that contains the tense you want to teach, you’ve got the makings of an exercise that your students will love. They’ll get to brag to their non-English-speaking friends that they know exactly what the song’s lyrics say, so they’ll be extra-motivated to stick with you throughout the activity to make sure they learn those meanings correctly.

A fun lesson idea using Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking out loud’ How do you encourage a really shy class to express themselves? It’s a question I’ve been asking all week. My latest group of single nationality pre-intermediate teenagers are a lovely bunch, but they can be so timid. I haven’t found many activities that truly engage them – my usual repertoire has fallen short and despite their politeness, plus my attempts to try a few different approaches, it’s just not happening. Class discussion is almost non-existent, pair work rarely extends beyond the absolutely necessary, things feel wholly teacher-centred at the moment and I hate that. Cue Ed Sheeran…

Staggering interactive map shows wave of migrants flocking to Europe each day In the last three years more than 1.3million people have arrived in the Eurozone to seek asylum. The majority of those who make it to Europe are coming from countries like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan which have been devastated by conflict.

Perhaps even more shocking is that the numbers seen streaming into Germany and other Western European countries represent only a small fraction of those displaced.
