Song is a great source of inspiration for learning English. As a rule, students of different ages are interested in old and modern English songs. How can a song be useful for studying English?
First of all, you can learn new vocabulary. Songs always touch upon the up-to-date problems, that’s why they introduce the alive vocabulary. Usually they contain the colloquial words and phrases. But there are phrasal verbs, idioms and a lot of emotional adjectives, adverbs and verbs in songs. Try to memorize them, it’s a great way to expand your own vocabulary.
Besides this, songs can be also used for studying grammar. However, songs often give us examples of "live" grammatical constructions, so- called "shrinking and linking" structures.
No doubt, songs are very important for developing listening and speaking skills. Students should listen to songs everywhere and every time they are free. It is the most common way to hear " real English". Don't forget to repeat the words, sing songs aloud ,try to use the phrases from your favourite songs in everyday conversations.As you can see, it is an easy and pleasant way to improve your English.
And last but not least, singing songs makes your mood better. You can sing alone or with your friends and become a more experienced and confident learner .
As for me, I like to use songs for teaching English. I'm sure songs make it interesting,motivated and fruitful .
