In my experience, the best lessons involve some sort of media at the heart of them. It could be a short film, YouTube clip, poem or a piece of art. As long as it’s authentic and interesting, students will thank you for it.
Songs allow students to improve their vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar in a fun engaging way. Better than simply ploughing through the course book because that’s what the syllabus requires.
This site provides free song based lesson plans to English teachers. In the first 6 months our lessons have been viewed over 50,000 times. We hope to share our ideas with even more teachers over the coming months.
I hope you and your students enjoy the lessons and any feedback is more than welcome.
