This song almost all students will know - Carlos Santana - Smooth.
Learn the song and all about this famous musician. Students can read the book on Gif Lingua. Teachers - register and get extra teaching materials for this lesson.
Do you really think almost all will know it?
Within reason. We'll have to do a survey and play it and see if they've heard it before. The tune itself is pretty damn iconic through commercials, tv, movies etc ...
Hm. I like Santana but had never heard the song. I don't watch tv and apparently the occasional movie is not that kind. Maybe I'll check with my students here in Kazakhstan.
A really cool song and example of kinetic typography music video - Ok It's Alright With Me.
Use with the attached Lyric Listening foldem sheet. Students fold hotdog style and complete as they listen. Then unfold and view the answers.
Take On Me - by Norwegian band A - Ha was a huge song. Nice cartoon lyrics your students will enjoy.
This is a slower version just released. Unplugged. Very good for listening practice for intermediate level students.
Students can also study the vocabulary and read the book on Gif Lingua.
I am a native speaker of English, and I do not understand this song. What does the title mean? The meaning I know for 'take on so' is adversarial -- and in that sense a pronoun would be placed between 'take' and 'on.'
I believe the meaning is "to take on" - suggesting that the woman try him out and begin a relationship with him.....
Same meaning with "take me on" (actually a good example of how some phrasal verbs can be split.
Walking on sunshine is a super song! here is a nice listening sheet for it. Get students talking about what makes them truly feel good!
Maybe try this Gif Lingua Book.
