Songs are a particularly useful resource for ELT. They have language, motivational appeal and great mnemonic power. In this presentation, we will look at different ways in which we can unlock their potential. We will try out a series of activities to use before, during and after the song. These will focus on three broad areas – skills practice, language practice, and working with the topical content of the song.
