Weather and Songs

It is always a good idea to incorporate songs in our teaching as they are highly motivating, extremely enjoyable and they promote natural learning. With the help of the Internet it is also super easy to create a lesson around a song in little time. If you are looking for songs to use after teaching about the weather here is a really big list of titles with weather vocabulary in their lyrics. Combined with the 50 ways to use music and songs in the EFL classroom provided by EFL classroom 2.0 you can prepare a song lesson for every taste and level!
A very beautiful song to use with older teenagers is "Stormy Weather" by Billie Holiday. Instead of using the typical Listening Cloze, the lyrics have been mixed-up and the students have to rearrange them by listening to the song.
