Good tunes?
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!

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."
