This survey help me to know that work with songs in a lesson is not easy since I can find some difficulties. The most important is the use of tape recordings, because the words in it are too fast for children. Actions songs are most used by teachers Songs are used at the beginning of the lesson. Although the use of tape recording is too difficult to teach songs most teachers work with it.
Through these questions I realized that songs are a very important instrument in classroom . They are helpful for motivate students on order teachers can get children´s interest in the learning of the new language. Moreover songs are an useful tool for practice listening skill in children in order they acquire knowledge about vocabulary, grammar patterns, and pronunciation.
