QT-ESL: Songs with subtitled lyrics (2)
After the success of my first page of video clips with closed captions in English, I am providing a second one. I suggest teachers use a song like those below with the lyrics—with perhaps a cloze exercise—at the end of the lesson after much work on (among other things) my grammar drills - QualityTime-ESL Podcasts.
Finding the lyrics
If you are looking for the lyrics of a song, just type in "lyrics" in the finder of a search engine plus the title of the song. You’ll find numerous sites providing the lyrics, which you can then copy into a file to create an exercise. Be sure to put the lyrics through a spell-checker as there are often spelling and other mistakes.
A student assigment
Teachers can ask their students as an assigment to choose their own video clips and bring them to class together with a gap-filling exercise.It is best to have checked the students’ work ahead of time to avoid mistakes. You can add notes (vocabulary or explanations).
At the bottom of this list there also some songs from cartoons like the Lion King.
