Listening: Seasons of Love

Average: 3.4 (12 votes)

This is such a beautiful song. If you haven’t seen the movie ‘Rent’ already then I strongly recommend it. In this lesson I’m going to let you try and hear the vocabulary as it’s all quite simple. Listen carefully!

Rihanna - Take A Bow Listening Lesson

Average: 4 (17 votes)

This song is full of theatre and performing arts related vocabulary, so obviously I love it. I’ve removed all this vocabulary, all you need to do is listen and put the words in the correct gaps.

Note: some of the words are used more than once.

This week’s focus is on music, so here’s an extra song for you. This is a Ne-Yo cover by Fall Out Boy. To make it a bit more challenging, I’m not going to give you the vocabulary this time, so listen carefully. Let me know how you get on.

Is this love?

Average: 3.4 (17 votes)

Ahhh, love. What a ridiculous, terrible, beautiful word! This song is about the more complicated side of love and is by my current favourite artists, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip. I have removed some of the key vocabulary; all you need to do is listen and put the correct word in each gap. NOTE: You only need to listen to the first half of the song.

I Need A Holiday!

Average: 4.3 (24 votes)

The title of this sentence isn’t actually true, I can’t wait for work and university to start! However, it is one of my favourite songs and has some really interesting idiomatic language and phrasal verbs in the lyrics. I have removed some of the key words and challenge you to try and remember the idiom or phrasal verb to fill in the gap. Then listen to the clip to check your answers. Good luck!

Listen: Dream Your Dream

Average: 3.7 (20 votes)

This year, one of my goals is to not let my shyness hold me back and always go for opportunities, even if I have to fake the confidence! This song, from the musical ‘Sweet Charity’, is all about having the confidence to dream. As the lyrics to this song are quite easy, I’ll leave it to you to try and hear the missing words.
