ESL Music Listening Activity - Reductions

Many students love English music and jump at the chance to hear it in class. Music is an awesome way to learn reductions, but many songs only use a few of them, which makes using a whole song very difficult or not useful.   I was able to solve this problem pretty easily by using a cool website called Hashcut. I mashed a bunch of parts of songs with reductions.

This allowed me to get only the parts that I wanted from those songs, which makes the students focus only on the content area that I want them to focus on. This mashup included songs from many decades like the Beatles, Rick Astley, Black Eyed Peas, Gotye, and more.  Most students are sure to know at least a couple of them.

You can first download the worksheet for this activity here. Then, play the video below to do the activity with students.

  15. Has the thought whether it's possible to sell your house fast without the help of a Realtor ever crossed your mind? Seems impossible, right? Look no further; there is a way to sell your house in 7 days without the assistance of a 'real estate agent' or even making any alteration or modification to your home. Sounds unbelievable? It's not. With the help of house buyers, you can sell your house in 7 days in all cash in the "As Is" condition. What more could you ask for? House Music
