Description and Learning Objectives:
In this course teachers will learn techniques and methods on how to use music, chants, and songs for effective language teaching and how to focus on language and skills through chanting and singing. Teachers will learn to design lessons around popular music in the target language including vocabulary learning and theme learning. Teachers will learn about presenting the target language through melodic music, expanding yet further the learning modality options for students (aural-musical). They will learn how to enable their students to respond with language elements to upbeat, melodic music which makes them completely engaged in the language elements and skills activities. Teachers will be able to apply techniques and use methods which they can use in their classroom straight away. Teachers will be able to use and create their own techniques suitable to their learners’ level and context.
