Can you imagine a day without listening to music? No? And do you know that your students probably feel the same way? Using songs in your classes is definitely worth trying!
#1 Songs increase students motivation
Don’t hesitate to ask students about their favourite artists! If you choose a song they aren’t really into, you will probably lose their attention.
Choosing a song or an artist that is popular will help both you and them to have a succesful lesson.
My tip: It is very likely most of your students like to listen to songs that are currently trending on social media. If you are a fan of using social media, try to browse some songs there.
#2 Useful for teaching both vocabulary & grammar
It doesn’t matter if it is vocabulary or grammar you are teaching at the moment- songs are wonderful for both!
#3 Songs improve listening skills, speaking fluency and enhance students’ creativity
Do I have to say more :)? Songs work wonders with improving listening & speaking skills and the fact it enhances students’ creativity is just a cherry on top!
