ESL Music Gap Fill Exercise
This is part of a lesson I have just done about reassurance. It is a simple gap fill exercise, just give each student a worksheet and ask them to fill in the gaps. McFerrin's accent is obviously very strong but his voice is clear over the music and he speaks very slowly so the student's did not have too much trouble. I have included both a worksheet and a PPT you can use if your students have whiteboards/notebooks and you want to save paper.
I also ask a bonus question which is if they notice anything unusual about the song. The answer is that it is a cappella. There are no instruments used throughout the song!
