Have a song to request? if you know what you're looking for Quick Jump to: We also have a separate section for children's songs. Here are some ideas for the use of songs in the ESL class: Filling in the blanks Songs are often used in this way in the ESL classroom.

Avril Lavigne - When You're Gone (letra y traducción) Siempre necesité tiempo para mí,nunca pensé que te necesitaría allí, cuando lloro.Y los días se vuelven años cuando estoy sola.Y la cama donde te acuestas tiene tu forma. Cuando te alejas, cuento los pasos que das.¿No ves cuanto te necesito ahora mismo? Cuando te has ido,los pedazos de mi corazón te hechan de menos.Cuando te has ido,Mi rostro muestra que te hecha de menos también.
