Teachers, ever tried using music in class and been pleasantly surprised at its effectiveness? Engaging young people in language learning can be tough, especially when teaching remotely. Therefore, it’s a great time to try new tech tools with students (especially if they’re being offered for free!). We’re pretty sure that they won’t be averse to giving an app a go, especially if it gamifies the learning process and simultaneously entertains. We’ve worked hard to make teaching Spanish through music a breeze for you. The teaching guide that we offer after sign-up to Lirica For Schools lets you easily pinpoint the right song lesson for a particular learning outcome.
Scenario 1 Lirica during class
We've tested the app in real life with numerous language teachers and their students. A physical classroom is, of course, a dynamic, interactive environment, but you can make the virtual one so as well. If live-streaming class, why not break things up, by giving students 10-15 minutes to complete a song lesson based on the topic you’re on. That way, they are still in the subject, but it’s kept fresh and exciting.
Scenario 2 Lirica outside of class
You could also set a full song with its vocabulary, listening and grammar modules based on a particular topic as a piece of homework. Get students to send you a screenshot of the song’s home screen - if a learning module is highlighted, the student has completed it. Check back soon for more tips for using Lirica with your class.
