Miyazaki JALT:

Sing Your Life: Effectively Using Pop Lyrics in EFL

Date: Saturday, April 21st, 2007 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Paul Hullah, Miyazaki University

Paul Hullah offers research findings suggesting that, though pop music forms L2 learners' most frequent meaningful exposure to English outside the classroom, this resource is inappropriately presented in popular contemporary tertiary level EFL coursebooks. Recommendations will be made as to how lyrics might more effectively be 'personlized' and utilized to promote self-expression, as participants tackle some original lyric-based activities developed by the presenter. Comments and criticisms regarding the proposed innovative approach are invited.

Organization: Miyazaki Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Miyazaki JALT)
