I think it's a good way to teach English. Because many students like to sing beautiful songs . They can not only get funs but also obtain knowledge from this kind of activity. In fact , intonation and rhthym are very important on English learning. If you don't pay attention to this , others can't understand you very well. Thank you for supplying me good method to teach English.

I agree that intonation and rhythm are very important in English learning, especially in speaking. English songs greatly inflect beautiful intonation and rhythm of English. Letting students sing a lot of beautiful English songs can not only improve their learning interests and motivation, more importantly, it can help students feel the beautiful English intonation and rhythm, and will help them a lot in their leraning of oral English.
