Rock & Learn is perfectly pitched for young learners of varying levels. The CDbook comes with a booklet full of fun exercises (one for each track) to consolidate learning. It even includes a karaoke version of each track to motivate students to learn the lyrics. After or before you listen to the songs and sing them you can focus on the language in the song through the activities, these, are quite varied and not only focus on language but also on developing their imagination by doing creative and autonomous tasks.
These are a couple of examples from the activity book:
The songs also have actions to the lyrics so students can do the actions sung in the songs while learning them and they can dance them in our live shows at schools or playcentres.
Rock & Learn is a great way to learn English or reinforce the language students have already learned.
