Hi and welcome to Teaching Tracks

…thanks for tuning in!

Teaching Tracks is the first of its kind, and uses a completely new approach to an old resource – songs and song lyrics.

You’ll find innovative ideas and materials suitable for the EFL/ELT classrooms, to teach language, culture, real issues etc. 

Songs are a multi-skilled text type that facilitates a wide range of language learning, including:

  • speaking
  • listening
  • reading
  • writing
  • vocabulary
  • grammar
  • phonetics and pronunciation
  • exploring themes that emerge from the song

And importantly, it avoids the “gap-fill trap” (there are no gap-fills!)

Teaching Tracks series, over time, will include an ever-growing collection of authentic materials, and creative classroom activities based on songs and their themes. Content promises to always be culture-rich and based on real-life issues – all using well-known and popular songs.

We have self-published three coursebooks or ‘Singles’ that work with song by David Bowie, Pink Floyd and Katy Perry. There are now a handful copies of each left, so please order your copies before they are all gone. 
If you would like to purchase one or more of these books, please visit the Book Shop or send us a message directly. (Limited books left)

If you want to preview the books and materials, you can download a free sample here.

The next books to be released (or  ‘album’) Top Ten, will feature teaching materials using 10 great songs, and 2020 Vision which of course are the next 10 great songs!

We would love your input and feedback on this site and the materials so please get in touch!
