I’m a Sailor is a happy action song about sailing ships and the sea. You can introduce this CLIL activity by explaining (in L1) that the song tells the story of Jack, a young English boy from Bristol who hides on a sailing ship about to leave for Boston in America. The captain discovers him and enrols Jack as a junior sailor. He sings this joyful song on his return voyage home to his parents and family across the Atlantic Ocean. The story is set in the 18th century.
