Abstract


No one has doubted the possibility of using music and songs in EFL(English as a Foreign Language) classes for learners' excitement and creativity. However, among the "ocean" of available songs today, it is quite confusing for teachers of  English to select the songs that are pedagogically, psychologically and culturally appropriate for the diversity of learners' ages and interests. To address this issue, this one –hour workshop will focus on the useful steps of using English songs in high school classes.The participants will be involved in designing their own lesson plans with about 10 - 15 minutes for an  English song. The facilitator will also share a collection of English songs in accordance with the content of the textbooks English 10 and English 11. In addition, she will share the lyrics and online links for future references.
