Yesterday students enjoyably and effectively improved their English in our activity Successful Singlish.
Many studies have found a positive connection between English language development and singing (Pratiwi, 2018; Trollinger, 2010). Songs have a variety of new words, phrases, and themes allowing students to learn vocabulary, the rhythm of language and grammar in a natural and fun way.

Yesterday, students learnt the lyrics to Elton John’s classic, “Your Song”. John’s song was selected because it contains authentic, natural language, interesting expressions, themes, a different accent (British not Australian) and it is a celebrated song.
The activity leader Elizabeth and students performed the song together and it was evident Elizabeth’s interest and enthusiasm transferred to the students as everyone was all smiles. The class was relaxed, fun and rewarding.
Rinako and Sara enjoyed the experience and will be back for more Singlish 🙂
