La música - Common Errors Worksheet

The most fun part about learning other languages? Getting to hear all the new music that comes with it!

This is the unit that most people look forward to but it's also one of the hardest units. With music, to really enjoy it, you have to be able to decipher all different kinds of accents, talking speeds, word play, etc. It's not easy to go from trying to understand Juanes and then switching over to listen to Farruko.

But the great thing is that you can do all sorts of activities to keep it live and fun for all levels. You can do fill in the blanks with music lyrics, you can listen to interviews with different artists, you can have them write their own cover song.

And you can also focus on a little bit of grammar.

Now I know there's a big movement in the langauge world to go away from grammar and focus more on interactive communicative learning which I totally admire, support, love, adore, etc.

But I do think that we CANNOT forget about the students who actually do enjoy grammar and actually like the formulaic rules behind expressing what you want to say. I know it sounds crazy but they exist and we can't take their learning style away from them.

So if you're one of those learners or have students who learn that way, here is an easy grammar worksheet that's centered around music. This would probably work great for all novices.
