20201016T0925 20201016T1025 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Teaching with Songs to Build Language Skills and Cultural Connections

Music is a global gift that enriches and unites the lives of people everywhere. The pleasures of singing and listening to songs are evident across human cultures. Since songs are widely appreciated and deeply ingrained in all people, they offer many opportunities to enhance learning in language and culture classrooms. Singing promotes fluency and can increase appreciation for beauty of a second language. Listening to and singing songs in the classroom can enrich the learning of grammar, sentence structures, vocabulary, pronunciation, and more. In addition to supporting language learning, songs can give insights into culture. Students who are invited to listen and sing in the classroom become open to powerful learning experiences. Music is enjoyable, non-threatening, and opens brain pathways that may not be used as much during more conventional academic activities. Participants in this workshop will experience and evaluate methods the author has applied to using songs in Vietnamese higher education classes, and will be invited to brainstorm applications to their own curricula.
