Songs always bring a breath of fresh air into the SONGS in the classroom: GRAMMAR GALORE – intermediate / advanced / teens / adults lassroom and are greeted with joy. I usually try to choose songs, which are not only clear and fairly easy to understand but have meaningful content for language learners such as grammar, phrasal verbs or vocabulary pertinent to what we are studying.
A wonderful song full of all kinds of grammar and expressions that is for intermediate / advanced students is HOLLYWOOD – Michael Buble. The catchy tune is fun to listen and sing along to whilst the rich assortment of language leads to all kinds of possible adaptations for practice – some of which I have suggested at the end of the document to download.
You can download the worksheets to the song below. Feel free to delete or translate the Italian into another language.
Can anyone suggest any other songs for practising grammar revision?
Hope you have fun with it!

REPETITIVE CHANTS: An opportunity to LEARN COLLOCATIONS NATURALLY...– beginner/intermediate / advanced / children / teens / adults
Chants are a very repetitive way of embedding expressions in the brain so that they become second-nature and just 'sound right' without having to resort to learning grammar rules and translating from one's own language with the inevitable often horrific results.
I have been setting expressions to music and rhythmic chants for decades with excellent results.
GOOD AT is an expression which many of my students just cannot remember and I would like them to be able to use collocations spontaneously - so I have invented this chant in the hope of fixing this expression forever!!
You can download the worksheet to the song below.
Hope it's useful!
