Lyricallanguage workshop klas 1 TTO Het College

21 december 2018

Maandag 17 december hebben de leerlingen van het eerste jaar TTO van het College een workshop van Michael Keoghan gehad. Samen met deze Australische zanger zongen ze Christmas songs. Ook werden er pomanders gemaakt: sinaasappels met kruidnagels.

Christmas is approaching fast and Lyrical Language offers a great Christmas workshop which includes lots of Christmas singing, and learning about the traditions of English speaking countries. In particular, learning and singing "The 12 days of Christmas" always makes students smile. Lyrical Language Learning workshops have been designed with Dutch TTO schools in mind. The students are given a live performance of classic and traditional songs. They then learn the songs themselves, are explained the meaning and history of the lyrics, participate in role-playing, and generally immerse in English during the session.The workshops are great for developing international awareness and understanding. They are cross-curricular in nature, combining English, Music, History and more. During the workshops the students skills and confidence in English improve naturally.
