MUSIC is ...

Music is the topic for the first unit in your textbook this year. Last week we studied some adjectives to describe your favourite types of music: latin, rock, pop,hip hop, rap,folk, classical... Here you can identify musical instruments of all sorts: stringed, keyboard, wind or percussion ones. Then, play the first game and game two to check the vocabulary you know.

On this website you can watch, read, listen and sing the best songs and learn more about the singers and groups who recieve an award every year: World Music Awards. Choose one of your favourite ones and learn about them as next week you will have to write about them. You will get extra marks if you also give a presentation to your class!!
First, listen to this song where Spanish and English are used. Click here and sing along.
