The FunSong Method
Descrizione in lingua italiana
New language for life
Imagine your classroom alive with excitement as your young learners sing and move in coordination and all in English! They are having a great time, the results are excellent, and you are relaxed, knowing you are following a learning programme that gives your classes new language they will remember for life.
FunSongs action song modules immediately engage children in the learning process.
Click on the image to watch part of teaching video for the CLIL action song "Water is Everything". Our teaching videos make it easy for you to learn the expressive actions of our action songs before presenting them to your class.
Why not show your class this cartoon based on the action song "Time to Play" by Charles Goodger, sung by 9 year-old Keziah Chalkly. They will want to sing and dance just like the schoolchildren at Position 1:14 in the film!
If you have an iPad you can download the FunSongs App.
Try out our action song finder box on the right, based on vocabulary fields. Just insert a noun and see which action songs it brings up. You can then download the song and use it in class.
What leading educationalists say about FunSongs
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."
