They should then check what they have written with classmates. Once the lyrics are completed, encourage students to sing along with the song, in order to practise the stress and intonation. Ask them to accompany the final 'long' notes, by singing the missing words. This will help them to recognise words with 'long vowel sounds' which are so important in our language. Follow this exercise with practice of long v short vowels. musicalenglishlessons.com/beatles/pedagogic/withalittlehelpfrommyfriends.htm 13/19

The evil that men do, lives after them, The good is oft interred with their bones; So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutas Hath told you that Caesar was ambitious; If it were so, it was a grievous fault; And grievously hath Caesar answered it. <>()<> More of this speech can be found at http://www.musicalenglishlessons.org/classics/williamshakespeare/quotes.htm SUGGESTIONS FOR COMPOSITION OR DISCUSSION Discussion: What qualities should a friend have? Discuss in which type of relationships, people ...

Different types of friends Different members of your family Get students to create mini dialogues, making suggestions, but ending with ‘What would the neighbours think if we did that?’ (How about painting the outside of the house bright orange? or Why don’t we sunbathe nude in the garden?)
