Music has many advantages in the life. Music makes the environment exciting and helps people to relax after hard-working day. Music also attracts children very much because of the rhythm, the lyrics. Especially, teaching English through songs is very effective. A song has many new words and phrases. While learning new songs children can learn vocabulary. In addition, they can practice listening skills by listen to the songs and do some task such as fill in the gaps, circle right answers… In order to sing the song, children have to read the lyric line by line. After that, the teacher adds music and teaches students to sing. In this process, students can be taught pronunciation, linking sounds, intonation,… Being an English teacher, I have to distinguish clearly between teaching English through English songs and teaching how to sing a song. With only one song, we can teach a grammatical unit, a structure, etc… However, it is very important for the teacher to choose appropriate songs. They should be easy with simple rhythm and words. Moreover, the lyrics printed in paper should have big font size, which helps children see easily. Teachers also should prepare pictures, real objects to teach vocabulary. They have to be able to sing and handle what they will teach through the song. Children are fond of music so they will sing the songs many times. They will learn naturally. Otherwise, teachers review the songs week by week. They can change the lyrics to teach other content or create new activities to help students enhance the lesson content easily. For example, with the song “What color is the sky?”, the teacher teaches 4 colors: blue, green, red and yellow. After teaching vocabulary, teacher can ask students to match names of color with pictures or color the picture which consists of the sky, the grass, the sun and an apple with suitable colors. These activities are very interesting and suitable with children. In short, using songs to teach English is very effective. Teachers should choose suitable songs and create various activities to help students learn actively.
