FunSongs Action Song Packages provide English teachers with a fun and effective way of teaching English to children. Our melodies are fresh, original and catchy. We believe that it is important to have good songs for this music and mime-based teaching method to work effectively.

What people say
Mario Rinvolucri, Pilgrims, Canterbury, England
“In the action songs classroom the learner is aware of enjoying himself and having fun. At an unconscious level the language patterns and regularities are being efficiently absorbed by the learner's mind for later free use. FunSongs is whole body and whole brain learning in which the learner perceives him/herself as doing rather than being done to.”
Prof. Ben Monk, ELT Teacher trainer
"FunSongs action songs stand out for their beautiful melodies. The graded worksheets are excellent too." Highly recommended.
Prof. Mauro Verde, teacher trainer for the Italian Ministry of Education, Milan
"This is one of the best ways of teaching young learners new vocabulary and language with the correct pronunciation. Children love to learn and perform these songs."
