I love having lunch with you guys…
Here are some of the websites that were mentioned yesterday:
North Pole (a Christmas site)
We were also talking about the music the kids like. If you can get videos to work, you can play these things on YouTube; if not, you can just help them understand the lyrics. If they know the song, even just reading the lyrics will help them with syntax, etc.
Michael Jackson – Kids of all ages listen to him: he’s a musical deity in China. Try the popular ones like Thriller, Beat It, Man In The Mirror.
Avril Lavigne – Teenagers like her (but be careful with some of her lyrics). Alice is a safe bet.
Justin Bieber – if you have a girl in your class, she’s probably a Belieber. The boys like him, too. Try Baby, Eenie Meenie and Never Let You Go.
Thousand Foot Krutch – they’re not overly popular in China, but one of my students got into them, and now the whole class likes them. They’re a Christian group, so a couple of the songs might have one-too-many references to God but there’s nothing otherwise offensive. Try Art of Breaking.
