Music and rhythm are an important part of language learning. They encourage memorization, imitation and more advanced language production, depending on the songs' topics and linguistic objectives. This interactive session introduces creative ways of using Italian and Spanish songs in the classroom. Participants will discuss techniques to engage students in activities that promote speaking and listening skills through developing cultural awareness and creative writing. Participants will receive materials with suggested songs and activities.
