New songs to download and use in your English lessons
We are currently working on some kids ESL songs that you can download and play in your lessons!
The songs are based on ESL lesson themes and vocab related to these themes. Some of the songs are adapted versions of well-known children’s songs (e.g. Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes) and some are original songs which we have written to slide nicely into your themed lessons (e.g. a weather theme song).
Over the next year we aim to record and make available 50 songs which will be free for all of our members to download and use.
We have written and almost finished recording the first batch of 10 songs and they are sounding really great. We should be able to make them available to you in Jan or Feb, 2013.
