Singing in Class in Italy
One day we took a break from the traditional classroom way of learning Italian and instead furthered our knowledge of Italian culture by singing traditional Italian songs. Along with improving our vocabulary in a cheerful way, it was a great bonding experience.
When the variety of instruments we had no experience playing were implemented into our singing and we were asked to play along with the music, it provided a very humorous scene and led to teachers from around the school being drawn to our class to witness this hilarious event.
As much fun as it was, it was a great example of how music and entertainment is a valuable way to improve learning a language. It also introduced us to music that we may not have otherwise been exposed to living in America.
