The purpose here is allow students to practice synonyms. The activities proposed for the song “IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE” couldn´t be simpler. First, students guess the name of the band based on a few clues provided by the teacher. Then, they listen to the song carefully and circle the correct words. After that, they list the words they don´t know in order of difficulty and write down their definitions.
I recommend the song “MY LOVE” for an adult group. First, students will say what they know about the author. Then, they choose a word/phrase from two options given for each line. After that, they listen and check whether they were right. Finally, they correct a few grammar mistakes in the song.
