Learning English through songs

Learning English through songs

Reading literary works at intermediate levels often implies the use of abridged versions adapted to the linguistic competence of the students in question . Yet, even when these kinds of books ensure comprehension, they “kill” the style of the original work, as well as the richness and versatility of the language. Abridged versions present at least two main drawbacks: they are not authentic material, and since they are texts used only as a means to display language structure, there is little, or no engagement at the discourse level, on the part of the student. Song lyrics represent authentic material; they do not need to be abridged because they can be selected according to the students’ linguistic level of competence. They resemble poetry and lend themselves to be used to the teaching of literary theory. Besides, listening to songs facilitate language acquisition and help students develop phonological awareness “Music has the ability to facilitate language acquisition, reading readiness, and general intellectual development....... to enhance creativity and to promote social development, personality adjustment, and self-worth.” (Weinberger, N.1998 P 56, 36-40)
