FunSongs - Where learning English is fun
The FunSongs Technique
New language for life
Imagine your classroom alive with excitement as your children sing and move in coordination and all in English! They are having a great time, the results are excellent, and you are relaxed, knowing that you are following a programme that gives your learners new language they will remember for life.
FunSongs action songs immediately engage children in the learning process. They are also a great supplement to a cross-curricular school project.

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."
