This is a quick tip in a series I am starting about how to use songs in the ESL Children’s classroom. I have been writing and using songs to teach English in Japan for over a year now, and have learned some things that might be useful.

This Weeks Tip: Sing Louder!

When you are singing a song with your students, simply ask them to sing louder. Often the kids can be shy, but actually can sing the song. Sometimes even on the first try of a song I ask the students to sing louder. They really try to say the words, even if they don’t know them yet. Of course it always best to pre-teach the vocabulary and lyrics. Happy Singing!
