    Re: Famous English SONGS

    I've recently used Celine Dion's song "Immortality" to teach modal verbs (will, can, may) to my secondary school students.

    I also used Mariah carey's song "Hero" to focus on the good qualities/feelings that any student (person) should have which are determination and optimism (When there's a will, there's a way).

    Re: Famous English SONGS

    I ask my students to bring me their favourite songs - that takes the emphasis off me and makes them participate more in the class because we are working with their chosen material.

    One of my students recently picked 21 Guns by Green Day which was full of questions - v. useful - there were plenty of grammatical errors in this particular song so one of the tasks was to correct them.

    All the best
