ESL Through Music
Song lyric websites abound, yet this ESL music website is different. Created and developed by a researcher and expert on the topic, this website provides teachers with the direction they need to use music in the most effective way in the ESL classroom. According to the research, music is capable of accelerating language acquisition, but only if certain principles are used. The website contains pedagogically-sound lesson plans written by one who understands the intricacies of using music for second language purposes, and knows how to tap this valuable resource. Teachers can download lessons as well as research study findings and other articles that support its use in the ESL classroom. The new bookstore spotlights a book of ESL music lesson activities and CD that teachers can use to help their students master English irregular verbs through music. It is the place to come if teacher's want to know exactly how to use music to accelerate the language acquisition process.
