Singing and language course : A 2h30 workshop based on an original and innovative method !
The workshop "singing course" is designed to help you improve your accent while exploring the wealth of vocabulary and grammar in the spoken English language. Singing will help you discover and memorize English idioms and typical expressions. It also helps develop good listening skills and better perceive the musicality of the language.
Singing courses which focus on the spoken language, listening, breathing and stimulate active participation of the body. First, the language is simply assimilated through singing exercise. In a later phase, its words and sense are analyzed in a more traditional, academic way. The songs are easily achievable by the participants. They are chosen for their vocabulary and their representative grammatical content and are selected following a progressive sequence. The presentation of the songs in a historical and cultural context does complete the workshop.
