OBJECTIVE: To encourage learners to approach dialogue fluently and confidently
After learning the Beach song, learners can use the lyrics to converse with each other.
What you need to do:
Say the lyrics of the Beach song in Spanish, English and Welsh. Ask learners to repeat.
Split the class into two lines A & B facing each other. Teacher says words in English and pupils repeat, speaking to line opposite
B: When the sky is blue
B: And there’s not a cloud in the sky
B: We go to the beach
A: The beach?
B: It’s the best place in the world
Next replace B’s lines with the Spanish phrases and then the Welsh phrases.
Ask learners to mix up the languages. For instance, partner A could ask the question in Spanish, and partner B could answer in Welsh.
