"Your English" podcasts are free English lessons with oral drills that will improve your spoken English dramatically—because they are "interactive", i.e. they will make you speak English! Patterns are given followed by "listen and repeat", "listen and transform" or "listen and answer", i.e. short sentences/expressions to repeat/complete or questions to answer. Please note that doing these drills orally in real-time is far more difficult than doing them as written exercises. In some cases you repeat sentences or phrases and in others you have to complete or transform sentences after hearing a stimulus. You are given the right answer orally so you can easily check your progress. "Your English" podcasts are of mixed levels: Pre-Intermediate to Intermediate (PI-I: A2-B1), Intermediate (I: B1-B2), Intermediate to Advanced (I-A: B2-C1), Advanced (A: C1-C2). Your English 01 "Introducing Myself" (PI-I: A2-B1) - Free transcript For a more complete lesson:

14 Song-Based Lesson Plans and Activities Although I know I like using music in my teaching, I never thought there would be so much of it on this blog when I started it over a year ago. Songs are fun, authentic sources with multiple possibilities in the classroom, but the main reason for having published 14 lesson plans and activities based on songs here is to a large extent due to copyright issues: while lyrics and songs are easily available for everyone online, access to other types of authentic texts is more limited because of copyright constraints. I also think the key to a successful song-based lesson is to deal with the text as you would with any other type of short text, whether written or oral, to practise a variety of comprehension skills, work on specific grammar and vocabulary, or introduce a topic for discussion.
