We made it through another week under lockdown! And if you are like me, I bet music has been a lifeline through this tough time. This week we discussed the power of music and some of our favorite songs that give us strength.
Listening: Learners can try a listening activity from British Council about Boy Bands. One of the best ways to combine listening practice and music is to use the website www.lyricstraining.com
For original version, listen to a great episode of All Songs Considered that was an inspiration in my preparing of this week's class: Old Songs, New Meanings.
Reading: First off, learners can try a reading comprehension article about one of my favorite musicians, Prince or something from Learn English Teens about different ways we consume music.
For original version reading, try an article from the BBC about Coronavirus Lockdown Chart or how to choose a Coronavirus playlist. Writing: This week I would like you to write an essay about why a particular songs is important to you. Describe it, give some background information, and tell about what feelings it conveys.
