Teaching with songs

Generally, students love to listen to songs during their English classes. English songs are a great resource to teach English. They can be used to teach, practice or reinforce vocabulary, grammar, spelling or pronunciation rules for instance.

It is very important that the teacher selects the appropriate song taking into account the level of difficulty or what it is going to be teached.

Here you have a selection of songs that I have used in class. They are classified according to their level of difficulty.

I hope you enjoy them!


‘Broken strings’, James Morrison & Nelly Furtado

‘Lucky’, J.Mraz & C.Caillat

‘Stronger’, Kelly Clarkson

‘Wide awake’, Katy Perry
