The Learning English Songbook contains 30 language pattern songs and chants specifically designed to teach functional English grammar to English language learners. It also provides detailed information on how to teach the songs, how to vary and extend them, and how to use them in concert with explicit grammar instruction. The accompanying audio CD supports classroom singing with more than an hour of music, including sing-along tracks as well as accompaniment-only versions, so that students can sing verses they have written using the song’s target grammar.
