  1. Firstly, I want to say thank you for your writing!
    I see and agree with your points about the benefit of teaching English songs in class. It helps Ss improve their listening skill, pronunciation skill. It also one of the best ways that make Ss easy to learn new words or structures, bring the relax time for Ss. Especially, it helps Ss become more confident when they stand before the class- this is an important factor with a person studying second language.
    However, there is one thing that make I confuse is “…and they can often be a welcome change from routine of learning a second language”. Can you explain???
