Using songs in teaching English for children.

As you know music has many many advantages in our life. Music also make an interesting and comfortable atmosphere in anywhere if you want to use it a good way. Moreover, teaching English through songs is one of the best method that the children focus on the lesson better. Because in a song has the variety new words and phrases with many different themes, so the children can learn some items of vocabulary, rhym of language, and grammatical structures that relating to any topic.
The fact that English songs for the children are often easy and simple topic that they like most to learn and the chidren will learn song by hearing it many times, maybe memorization occurs via repetition.
In addition,using songs in teaching English is the great way to teach language for children who can not understand fully all the lyric but they still listen to music and sing follow their teacher or music because they are very interesting. However, the teacher should not forget the main purpose that using songs in teaching English is only the tool in order to aim the children in lesson.
If the teacher only use songs to teach and do not require that the children should use any action in class; then the children will be tired and dispirited. Therefore, there are active and comfortable atmosphere by some activities through songs, the chidren take the initiative more. The teacher can divide the class into some suitable groups and exchange if necessary. They can sing or dance with many different ways that help them find out new words and remember this new words easily and quickly. The teacher also have to introduce clearly and use the simple gestures or body language which the children can understand to do immediately.These activities are very interesting.
In short, I hope that using songs will be good way for children to learn English and is very effective. Teachers should choose suitable songs and create various activities to help students learn actively.

  1. hi, my name is Hau. I have just read your post. Firstly, this is a good writting. Because there are many nice points, For example, “a song has the variety new words and phrases with many different themes, so the children can learn some items of vocabulary, rhym of language, and grammatical structures that relating to any topic”, “use the simple gestures or body language which the children can understand”. However, I think that you can change or develop somethings to make it better. Some of them may be the gramma: “As you know music has many many advantages in our life” (comma),”Music also make an interesting and comfortable atmosphere” (make->makes),”one of the best method” (method->methods)..so on. These are some mistakes that can be limited. If you read it again, you can find out and correct them easilier. In addition, these are so genneral ideas. you can give some real situations to make it more vivid. Above is my opinions. Wish you have more success and interesting writing!

    Thanks for your sharing! your writing is quit good and I really like this topic. Teaching English through songs is one of the best way that teachers in the world often use. your writing consists of advantage and disadvantage when using the song in teaching children and it’s good. As you said song should be used to teach vocabulary, grammar, and language. However, I think you should write more clearly and more detail about the purpose of teaching song such as you can give some examples and analysis it if you can. i think if you do that, your writing is better.🙂
