As we are about to start new SingEnglish! Spring courses, here is a photo reminder showing some of the singing and teaching that took place in January.
We thought it was about time to update our profile picture with some action shots from the January course. Understanding the English words helps the singer express the song.
SingEnglish! courses will run in three venues in Brighton & Hove from mid-April. Language students will be able to choose where and when they would like to attend a course. Come and practise your English while you enjoy singing with others! More details about dates coming soon! Course fees start from £6 per hour session. Please message SingEnglish!UK if you would like to take part in a course.
SingEnglish! is now in contact with six language schools for our courses starting in April. Students will be able to learn at their own school or visit another school to enjoy singing and practise English. We hope to have news about more schools taking part later this week....
Suggest a song... Which songs are the best for practising English? We are going to suggest a few songs that could be great for English learners to sing. These might be examples we will sing in the next SingEnglish course. What do you think? Send SingEnglish your suggestions and we will have a look at some of the lyrics. What do they mean? How should certain words be pronounced? When do songwriters change the 'rules' of language to fit the words to the music? To start, here are three songs you might be singing on a SingEnglish course: Every breath you take - The Police. You should get more confident using sentences that start with 'every', after practising Sting's lyrics... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMOGaugKpzs When we were young - Adele. Songs often use 'cause' or 'cos' (short for 'because'), but although Adele does this when she sings here, English speakers don't usually say this in conversation... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDWKuo3gXMQ In my life - The Beatles. A classic song from the British band that everyone knows. The lyrics combine a sense of past and present... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUDje4cTev0
SingEnglish has been a bit quiet this month. We're working on the courses that we plan to start in April. At the moment we are spreading the word about how successful the January course was. We have already added another venue where we can run future SingEnglish courses. If you are an English language student or a language teacher in Brighton & Hove, send us a message for more information about the courses.
SingEnglish!UK - first course performances
English language students sang to their friends & colleagues on Friday at the end of the first SingEnglish! course. Here's some video of the performance plus some clips of the teaching sessions. To take part in a course and enjoy practising your English while singing with others, get in touch via facebook or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. SIngEnglish! is the truly international singing experience!
A fantastic final performance from the singers on the first SingEnglish!UK course earlier today. It was great to hear the songs come together so well - thanks to all those who took part! Video clips will follow over the weekend, so check back tomorrow to hear the choir in action.
Yesterday, the guys & girls split up the vocal part for the bridge section of 'Hello' - the group is getting ambitious! Later today singers will perform for friends and colleagues. The final rehearsal at Brighton Language College starts at 4pm, then the performance is at 4.30. See you there!
