Teaching with Songs! This is a great listening exercise.
Play a song for students; have them listen to the lyrics twice without the words and have them record on a piece of paper any words they understand.
Then, give them the lyrics and play the song again.
Some suggested songs:
“Bridge over Troubled Water”
“Sounds of Silence”
Note – working with song lyrics can be a very challenging exercise for students! This activity format allows students to focus on what they know not all that they don’t.
