This is the VOA Special English Education Report.
(MUSIC)
Songs teach language. Consider a song like "Tom's
Diner" by Suzanne Vega. An American teaching English
overseas once told us that students love it.
(MUSIC)
Recently we asked people on Facebook to suggest other
songs that English learners might like.
Noemi Nito wrote: I'm one of those English students who
love "Tom's Diner." I started learning English with "Lemon
Tree" by Fool's Garden.
Another person, Asi Tambunan, suggested the song
"God Only Knows" by Orianthi.

Gyongyi Jako wrote that ABBA's songs from Sweden are
perfect for class work. Also, the Beatles and John
Lennon, as well as Louis Armstrong's "Wonderful World."
Paul Cifuentes says Bob Marley's songs are amazing for
teaching. But another teacher, Joseph Deka, says songs
by Johnny Cash have always worked in his classroom.
He says his students can hear the words, plus the songs
often have stories. But he says young children love "C Is
for Cookie" by Cookie Monster from the TV show
"Sesame Street.“

Aurelio Lourenco Costa Gusmao says he began to like
English after his teacher played the Westlife song "I Have
a Dream": That was eight years ago. I was in the seventh
grade. And from that day on, my dream of improving my
English skills became attached in my mind.
Teachers can use this song to convey the message to
their students that they should have their own dream for
the future.
Aurelio's story was no surprise to another commenter,
Katie Kivenko: When you listen to your favorite songs,
you feel emotionally high and it moves you to action.
And that's the VOA Special English Education Report.
You can share other music suggestions for English
learners at voaspecialenglish.com or on Facebook at
