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. 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.
