It's great to use songs in the class, if only to do something a little different. But beyond using them solely to give your students some 'light relief', there are many other ways songs can be used in ESL classrooms to consolidate what students have already learnt.
CLB 3 LINC instructor Rob Macinnis from our NE location in Whitehorn submitted a list of songs he likes to use as teaching tools in his classroom and asked me to share them all. Simply click the song titles below to hear the songs. Further still, if anyone would like to add a song or even a category of songs to this post, simply send it on over and I will make the addition. Happy singing!
