Land of Amber
FunSongs founder Charles Goodger lived in Riga, Latvia from 2008 to 2013 while his wife was teaching Italian at Riga University.  As a gift to the country and people he came to love and respect, he wrote the song Land of Amber a tribute to Latvia in three languages: Latvian, English and Russian.

You can also watch a video with beautiful photos of the places in Latvia mentioned in the song and download a PDF file of the words. See the Latvian actress Vita Baļčunaite sing it on National LNT television.

Many songs for learning English have banal or unforgettable melodies. To make use of the power of music effectively in the classroom, teachers need to have good, catchy songs. Judge for yourself!

Testimonials

 
 

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.”

Benesek Monk, Berlitz School, Riga, Latvia
"FunSongs action songs stand out for their beautiful melodies. The graded worksheets are excellent too."

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."
