Learning English is no easy task. Learning the language takes time and effort, but if you have the right learning tools at your disposal, learning English can be much easier. Here are some of the best English songs for learning English that will help you memorize important vocabulary words and learn more about our planet.
It is a well-known fact that music is the most widely used language learning method. It has been proven that listening to songs or instrumental music increases people’s motivation and improves their English skills. But what if we had English songs that could improve your vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar? The good news is that there are several websites that make it possible for you to get such songs for free.
No matter how hard you try, it’s almost impossible to learn a new language without having fun while doing so. To help you do just that, we’ve created this list of English songs for learning English. READ more about learning English with song.
Learning English is not easy. Most people who try to learn it for the first time give up in frustration, due to difficulties with understanding and expressing themselves. However, there are songs that help you improve your pronunciation and get the hang of new words. Here’s a list of some popular English songs, and their meanings so you can use them as learning resources.
Can any kind of music be used to learn English?
It is a commonly held notion that music cannot be used for learning English. Of course, learning must always include the use of books and other reading materials as well as using interactive resources such as virtual classrooms or phonetic software, but how can you learn from songs?
Here are some tips to help you benefit from music while acquiring your new language skills: You don’t have to listen all the time – any amount of listening could be helpful depending on the type of music you like. Don’t be afraid to test different tunes – pick out melodies and lyrics you feel are interesting! A little bit of experimentation will help: if it doesn’t work for 1 song, switch to another one that gets your language learning juices flowing (or drown them in any case). Pick up an instrument – guitar, piano or even kazoo can all lead to singing along with irritatingly catchy songs.
English learning activities – practising speaking and pronunciation
Singing is great for learning the rhythm of a language. It helps us learn how words are linked together in connected speech.
Singing along can be challenging, even for native speakers. So help your child with these easy steps:
- Find the song Lyrics online, or find a music video with subtitles. For example, Sing and Learn is great for younger children.
- Read the song lyrics out loud. Look up any unknown words in a dictionary.
- Listen to the song and read the lyrics at the same time. Encourage your child to sing along.
- When they’re ready, try singing along without looking at the lyrics.
- Remember, they don’t have to get it perfect straight away! It’s actually more effective to repeat regularly. See also, speaking English.
Improving English pronunciation
Engaging in repetition and stretching of listening words is one way to improve English pronunciation, but there are also activities that help children read text. Try:
Storytelling – Read to your child in this way at least 10 times a day. The better you know the language, and how each word should be pronounced, the more effective stories will be. Reading aloud gives both of you an opportunity to use new vocabulary, which shouldn’t result in any confusion as it will all gradually become familiar from repeated exposure.
English learning activities – practising reading, writing and listening skills
Storytelling is great for learning the rhythm of a language. It helps us learn how words are linked together in connected speech and encourages children to use more than one word at once, creating more complex sentences.
When reading stories with your child, make sure they take turns choosing their favourite characters! Finding books on tape (via DVDs or video downloads) can also be an excellent way to curb bedtime struggles. As well as making it easier for you as a parent, kids love watching their favourite characters on tape.
Reading can be great for improving English pronunciation, so consider including stories that you think may help here too. See also, listening to English is a skill.
And remember – don’t assume that just because your child knows a lot of words, they know how to use them. Sometimes new language skills can be surprisingly difficult in comparison to learning written grammar and already-known vocabulary. If you feel unsure about something, ask! Enjoy your time with the language – start communicating in a new way today by teaching or learning something new, together.
Try some of these activities to help improve and develop any soft skills needed for school success:
Choosing and Using Assistive Technology (BT) tools – things like note-takers and pencil grips can be helpful when trying to write on paper; software that has flashcard features – this is great because you present less work, as it only works with flashcards. An accessible keyboard that enables the use of a mouse is also great for students who are starting to become computer literate.
Mentor or volunteer – give budding EFL children their first exposure to the classroom environment by becoming an assistant teacher in your school district (a mentor). Through this role they gain invaluable insight into what goes on inside a UK classroom from one of ‘their own’.
All in all, it is possible to learn English at home, and the benefits of learning a foreign language can be seen in all aspects of life. However, it is important to remember that there are some limitations to what you can do with your child at home alone. For example, if your child has difficulties communicating or understanding written words then it may be difficult for them to understand how much they have learned in school or what they need to work on next.
