    songs

    Hi,
    May someone help me to find activities to do with songs? I need something nice to do with 11- 13 years old students.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Thanks a lot for your suggestions.

    Tdol... I'm not yet a skilful user of this site....sorry

    Phoenix Wu, my students are teenagers and I think they really won't appreciate such songs for kids...thanks anyway!

    I like the site "Slang city" ...I'm looking for songs which have a sort of didactic aim... or at least are well-written and have good grammar constructions.

    Thanks to both of you!

    Okay,you don't worry...It's doesn't matter.I think you have your idea and to chose songs for your students.That's good idea.Because you know what kind of songs your students like it.
    One day I hope I can teach kids...I like kids so much.They are very lovely..smart....funny...

    good luck,
    Phoenix

    Re: songs

    Arimun, have you got access to English File or New English File course book? Because there are quite a few good uses of songs there which work well for teens, like Dusty Springfield doing 'You don't have to say you love me', or the great Bob Marley song 'Three Little Birds' for going to forms.

    Re: songs

    Try downloading the Princeton Review Podcast. They make some sarcastic but informative songs (one about the prefix "in" for instance). They are just sardonic enough to be loved by teenagers.
