QT-ESL: ABBA Song Videos and Lyrics for Sing-Along!
You can become very good at English by learning by heart the lyrics to the songs of the Swedish groups ABBA. The name of the group "ABBA" is an acronym created from the first letter of each of the singers’ first names (Agnetha, Björn, Benny, Anni-Frid). They topped the charts worldwide from 1972 to 1982 and are still extremely popular today. I love them because of their music and not ony because I am Swedish mself! But I can be proud of xhat they have accomplished. Their songs always make me feel happy.
Unfortunately, not all of these video clips have subtitles (though some do and I keep searching for more), but you’ll have a great time singing all together in class… or at home on your own with the lyrics!
I HAVE JUST NOTICED THAT SOME OF THE VIDEOS WITH SUBTITLES HAVE BEEN REMOVED. THAT IS SUCH A PITY, SINCE IT IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO TEACH ENGLISH! I will keep searching for more.
