V tem šolskem letu smo na željo učencev, ki pri pouku večinoma zelo uživajo, ko vključimo popularno glasbo, na seznam interesnih dejavnosti uvrstili English Singing Group, kjer lahko učenci celo uro prepevajo s svojimi najljubšimi zvezdniki. Glasba izboljšuje angleške spretnosti, poveča samozavest in izboljša izgovorjavo. Naučimo se lahko vsakdanjega jezika, fraz, metafor, ki so prisotne v vseh kvalitetnejših besedilih. Ker popularna glasba zagotavlja tudi čustveno povezavo s poslušalcem, daje učencem nove načine za izražanje njihovega počutja. Glasba in ritem tudi povečujeta zapomnitev, ki je seveda ključna za učenje.

Povzetih po spletni strani english.com, nizamo 11 fantastičnih pesmi za učenje angleščine. Poskusite.

1. The Beatles – Blackbird
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

2. The Cure – Friday I’m In Love
Always take a big bite
It’s such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night

3. Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart

4. The Smiths – How Soon Is Now?
I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar

5. Neil Young – Heart of Gold
I’ve been in my mind
It’s such a fine line
That keeps me searchin’ for a heart of gold
And I’m gettin’ old

6. U2 – City of Blinding Lights
And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

7. The Police – Every Breath You Take
Every move you make and every vow you break
Every smile you fake, every claim you stake, I’ll be watching you
Every move you make, every step you take, I’ll be watching you

8. Bob Dylan – Mr Tambourine Man
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come followin’ you

9. Madness – Our House
I remember way back then when
everything was true and when
we would have such a very good time
such a fine time

10. Otis Reading – (Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay
Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again

11. Leonard Cohen – Everybody Knows
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows that the good guys lost
