Using English Songs: An Enjoyable and Effective Approach to ELT
Shen, Chunxuan
English Language Teaching, v2 n1 p88-94 Mar 2009
How can ELT be made enjoyable and effective? One feasible pedagogical application is to integrate English songs into ELT. Song, a combination of music and lyrics, possesses many intrinsic merits, such as a kaleidoscope of culture, expressiveness, recitability and therapeutic functions, which render it an invaluable source for language teaching. This paper provides theoretical arguments and practical support for using English songs in ELT.
