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. Why Daytrotter Why Daytrotter? Well, when we started Daytrotter in the early spring of 2006 it was created as a place of discovery for music lovers and a hole-in-the-wall-of-the-Heartland haven for passionate and inspiring musicians criss-crossing and cross-crissing the country and the world, hoping to find open and sympathetic ears.

Seven Songs for Teaching Past Simple I have created a list of songs, which are perfect for teaching Past Simple tense in English. All of the songs are relatively new and popular, so they would especially be suitable for teaching teenagers.

Coldplay – Paradise Past Simple is often used for retelling the events that happened in the past. This song is perfect for illustrating this usage. How To Read Guitar Tab Guitar tab or tablature is a very popular method of notating guitar music. What makes tab so popular is that, once you get the hang of it, it is very easy to read. In order to understand tab, you need to visualize a guitar neck as if you are playing the guitar and looking down on the neck. Tab consists of 6 horizontal lines that represent the strings of the guitar. The thickest string being the bottom most line and the thinnest string being the topmost. Numbers are then placed on these lines to represent finger positions on the guitar fret board.

Just last year, the Association of American Publishers ranked Children's/Young Adult books as the single fastest-growing publishing category. Which is why we were only a little surprised to see the tremendous response that came in for this summer's Best-Ever Teen Fiction poll. A whopping 75,220 of you voted for your favorite young adult novels, blasting past the total for last year's science fiction and fantasy poll at, dare we say it, warp speed. And now, the final results are in. While it's no surprise to see Harry Potter and the Hunger Games trilogy on top, this year's list also highlights some writers we weren't as familiar with.
