Listening for key words in songs

Listening for key words in songs
Submitted 16 years 7 months ago by admin. This is a fun activity which helps students listen out for key words. It's particularly useful for encouraging students to recognise familiar words even in difficult texts. This activity works well with all kinds of songs, and can be used to introduce a song, or simply as an enjoyable warmer or cooler. Preparation You will need to choose a song for your class and have copies of the lyrics. You can download example cards for 'The World's Greatest' by R. Procedure With each group around a table, I tell students that I'm going to give them some words from a song. I then tell my students that in fact only some of these words are in the song, and that they'll listen to the song to find out which. Note: this activity can be used at all levels - it just depends on the words you put on the cards.

But, it’s not so crazy and I actually had no system of any sort until I took the CELTA course a few years back. After that course, I could recite the basic ESL listening lesson plan in my sleep! Thank you CELTA!

Growing up, I never had the opportunity to do any extra practice to improve my listening skills. We didn’t have the Internet and the thousand possibilities it offers to learners of any language nowadays. The teachers had an old tape player that sometimes stopped and started on its own and old tapes that ended up sounding distorted and most of the times unlistenable so if you wanted to get better at listening, you just listened to the radio and struggled to understand the lyrics and sing along. Not that I ever complained. That was the perfect excuse to listen to music while claiming to be working hard.

Where to find inspiring videos for your lessons? In this post, I am sharing my 10 favourite YouTube channels where I look for videos to use in my lessons or to recommend to my students.
