As we all know, singing a song can be a great way of retaining vocabulary, reinforcing sentence structure and hooking young people into language learning. This year's crop of trainee teachers in MFL at Liverpool Hope University have been doing just that by putting their own words to well-known tunes and performing them on camera for all the world to see!
The results in French, Spanish and German are certainly impressive, particularly considering the groups only had 30 minutes to create their masterpieces and learn their dance routines too. Amazing how a bit of creativity and collaboration can perform such wonders in such a short space of time! My favourite clip is the French group performing their own take on the Happy Days theme tune for learning about daily routine. Fonzie would have approved.
Hope Springs Eternal!
