Music to your ears

1. Choose an English song you like. Listen to it 10 times and try and understand the lyrics (words). Then look them up on the internet.

2. Have you ever tried writing a song in English? If not, you should! Start slowly. Add music. Perform it for a friend or teacher.

3. Try and translate Shakira’s songs into English. Then listen to the English version. Are yours and hers the same?
