I was wondering what you all thought of learning designs pertaining to English language teaching? What are the ways in which you design your lessons to achieve better learning in your students?Continue
Great look on this page! You will have to check out a lot of the karaoke for the classroom I've produced and do workshops/share about. Great tool and I like it better than video because it has more of a language focus, less distraction. But for adults, this is perfect. I do a lot of subtitling with video, you can see some in our video folder.
Another great song I use for IF is "if I had a million dollars." I just show images and students can follow the words pretty well. Barenaked ladies song in our video folder.
I once has a karaoke video site but took it down. I am redoing my materials site and will put this back up - hundreds of videos.
As an EFL Student, It helped me learn the language by singing songs and related images. WE, bilinguals, need to see as well as listen to pronunciation and the semantics of the words. Love this video, for the possibilities. Using it to focus on one skill: the use of "If".
