ETJ Fukuoka:

Music: Learning to the Beat in EFL

Date: Saturday, November 11th, 2017 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: ETJ Fukuoka Committee

Songs and chants can be highly effective learning activities for language students of all ages and levels. Share your tips for great songs and how you use them in class and find insight and inspiration as others give their own ideas. Topics for thought and discussion (feel free to bring your own, too!):

  • Share some of your favorite tunes for classroom use
  • Consider student maturity level and language ability level, plus achievability of lyrics
  • What are your expectations: Enjoyment? Comprehension? Producing similar language?
  • How many times can you use a song for a class? How can it stay fresh?
  • General tips for chants and songs
  • Actions and other activities for songs
  • Setting up a song, wrapping up a song, connecting it to other activities
  • Music outside the classroom

After Party:
Enjoy drinks and dinner in Nishijin after the meeting! It will be a great chance to focus on teaching, exchange ideas, and network with other teachers in the Fukuoka community.
