turning stones

taking for a spin: tools for The Five 8s

Listening/Spelling Activity

You choose a song and a degree of difficulty, a YouTube video plays. Shown on the screen with the video are lines of the song with missing words. Your objective is to listen to the lyrics carefully and type in the correct words to complete the lines. If you miss a word, the video stops playing; just hit the up arrow key and the video backtracks and plays the line again. The video continues to play as long as you supply the correct words. I learned about this from Ana Maria Menezes. Like her, I had tons of fun trying this out.

I’m sure language teachers will find some use for this either as a practice tool or as springboard to a related lesson. Make sure to choose songs that are appropriate. Other languages are French, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. Click Lyrics Training.
