Sing and Learn – the new video series by Cambridge English

leave a comment »

The Cambridge English Sing and Learn video series is designed to help children learn, remember and use new language.

The videos include simple action songs with the words displayed on screen for children to follow and sing along to. Each video comes with activities to help children practise their reading and writing skills tested in our Cambridge English: Young Learners tests. They also include words taken from the word lists used to create these exams.Help children to learn English and keep them motivated with fun learning activities they can do at home.

Help children take part willingly in singing activities and so have fun whilst learning and practicing language. Using simple action songs at home can have the following benefits:

  • Motivate young learners to listen and vocalise using rhythm and intonation
  • Help young learners to quickly learn, use and remember new language
  • Encourage good classroom behaviour, working with others, learner confidence and independence.

Just turn on your computer, tablet or smart phone and encourage your child to listen and, when ready, sing along, karaoke-style, to the song. You should join in, too! The language learning will happen whilst the child has fun. Repeat as many times as the child wants. Follow up at a suitable time with the activity sheets – but not necessarily all in one go.

Sing and Learn is just one of many great resources for parents helping their children to learn English: http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/sing-and-learn/
