Even when people understand the words, it can be difficult to put together the big picture.
It’s a great exercise though, to use your own words to talk about something you’ve read or in our case, heard. This is again just a plan but once we’ve looked at the lyrics of a certain song it’ll be time to discuss what the story is behind those lines and what it means to the students.
It says so much about people in my opinion, and after teaching them for more than 3 months I know it’ll be an interesting discussion as they’re very different, and some have very unique points of views.
In April I set myself a challenge to use more music when teaching English. I passionately believe in the power of music to make everything better and I want to motivate my students to feel more relaxed, and at the same time more inspired about learning English. I’m sure it’ll be a journey with ups and downs! 😉
