Target Audience

 

Teaching children songs is always fun because they will clap hands, dance around and sing along. Very few young learners will not be willing to participate. As for adult students, they will enjoy anything that provides them with opportunities to learn. They want to know the meaning of every word and what grammar point is being presented. They don’t care much for singing, so focusing on grammar, vocabulary and opportunities for speaking while addressing  an issue presented in the song usually does the trick. Another positive aspect about adults is that they don’t care whether the song is new or old, but whether they can learn something from it. Having song activities for teens, on the other hand, is an entirely different thing.  They don’t care for practicing grammar, they just want to have some fun. They may also not respond well to old songs, so having a song list devised by them as a reference is advisable. They do, however, respond well to challenging tasks or tasks that involve controversial issues, which will consequently lead to warm discussions. That being said, have that in mind when devising a song activity for a teen group.
