This week, we delved into music, playing Name That Tune and discussing the songs that have influenced us in our lives.
Learners can try a listening exercise from British Council about Live music. To try your hand at listening comprehension with music lyrics, I highly recommend LyricsTraining.
For original version listening, there are several podcasts related to music that I recommend: All Songs Considered, Lost Notes, Song Exploder.
Learners can try an activity from Breaking News English about Dance Music or Business News Lessons: Music streaming’s diversity problem.
For original version, try one of the following longform articles: Meet the Shaggs, Billie Eilish and the Triumph of the Weird, The Strange and Mysterious Death of Mrs. Jerry Lee Lewis.
This week for writing, please write an ode to your favorite song, artist, or band. Please be very descriptive about what sets them apart from the rest!
