Video: El Reino Del Revés

Hello everyone,
A nice way to get younger learners interested in languages is with songs and videos. I will start posting Spanish songs for children which you can use with adults as well.
The first song will be El Reino Del Revés. One thing you can do with this song is ask your students to make a list of all the 'backwards' things in the song. Enjoy!

El Reino del Revés

Me dijeron que en el reino del revés
nada el pato y vuela el pez.
Que los gatos no hacen miau y dicen yes
porque estudian mucho inglés.

Vamos a ver como es el reino del revés
vamos a ver como es el reino del revés

Me dijeron que en el reino del revés
nadie baila con los pies.
Que un ladrón es vigilante y otro es juez
y que dos y dos son tres.

Vamos a ver como es el reino del revés
vamos a ver como es el reino del revés

Me dijeron que en el reino del revés
cabe un oso en una nuez.
Que usan barbas y bigotes los bebés
y que un año dura un mes.

Vamos a ver como es el reino del revés
vamos a ver como es el reino del revés

Me dijeron que en el reino del revés
hay un perro pequinés
que se cae para arriba y una vez
no pudo bajar después.

Vamos a ver como es el reino del revés
vamos a ver como es el reino del revés

Me dijeron que en el reino del revés
un señor llamado Andrés
tiene 1.530 chimpancés
que si miras no los ves.

Vamos a ver como es el reino del revés
vamos a ver como es el reino del revés

Me dijeron que en el reino del revés
una araña y un ciempiés
van montados al palacio del marqués
en caballos de ajedrez.

Vamos a ver como es el reino del revés
vamos a ver como es el reino del revés

Ed-Tech: Educreations app

Greetings WL friends! Wishing you all a Happy Easter, and a restful Spring Break!

This morning, I want to share this post with you about Educreations:

Educreations: Adding Value to the Classroom

Mr Renfro, our colleague, has several terrific ideas to consider how to use this excellent FREE tool, and how to curate engaging content. He also, very rightfully, encourages us to share what we create with others. I also want to encourage us all to do this – with all the amazing things each one seeks to do for our students, if we share our creative and engaging activities with each other, we all benefit, as do our students! I would also like to encourage you to share here what you might like to create and share! Got an idea? Want some reflective coaching from colleagues? Let's start a conversation! I hope to see some posts from you soon.

Best wishes,

ESL Speaker Series 3/27

German: MIA - Uhlala (song)

Here is Christina with more German music!
Today I would like to share with you a beautiful love song by the German band MIA:
"Uhlala (Damit du fühlst)"

The song text is full of metaphorical images that are open for interpretation. Thus, the lyrics give this happy song a fascinating poetic depth. See for yourself what they mean to you:

Uhlala - DEUTSCH

Der Himmel, der war immer da,
werden’s die Wolken auch sein?
Ich glaube ja, wie jedes Kind,
die Dinger sind aus Zucker.
Unsichtbare Finger
zausen mir durch Kopf und Haar.
Was immer auch mit mir geschieht,
geschieht zum ersten Mal.

Soweit ich weiß, 
teilen wir dieselbe Zeit.
Ich stell mir vor,
ich wär ein schöner Augenblick.
Somit schick ich mich dir 
in dieser Sekunde,
damit du fühlst wie ich, 
damit du fühlst

uhuhuhuhu, damit du fühlst
ahahaha, damit du fühlst

Die Erde, die das Leben bringt,
wie lang noch wird die sein?
Ich pflanze voller Zuversicht
ein Stück von mir hinein.
Ich schüttle Sand von meiner
Hand in eine Sanduhr rein.
Die Sehnsucht nach Unsterblichkeit
hängt noch an jedem Stein.

Somit schick ich mich dir 
in dieser Sekunde,
damit du fühlst wie ich, 
damit du fühlst

uhuhuhuhu, damit du fühlst
ahahaha, damit du fühlst
Oooh la la - ENGLISH

The sky, it was always there,
Will the clouds be there, too?
I just think, like every kid,
That things are made of sugar.
Invisible fingers
dishevel my hair
Whatever happens to me,
Happens for the first time.

As far as I know, 
we share this time,
I imagine,
I were a beautiful moment
I send myself to you 
this second
So that you feel like me, 
so that you feel.

Oooh oooh oooh so that you feel
Aah aah aah so that you feel

The earth which brings us life,
How much longer will it be?
Confidently I plant
a bit of myself
I pour sand by hand
into the egg timer
The desire for immortality
clings to every stone.

So I send myself to you 
in this second
So that you feel like me, 
so that you feel.

Oooh oooh oooh so that you feel
Aah aah aah so that you feel

The members of the Berlin rock/pop band are Mieze Katz (lead singer), Gunnar Spies (drums), Robert Schütze (bass), and Andy Penn (guitar).

News: Is technology forcing out traditional teaching methods?

Is technology forcing out traditional teaching methods? Addressing this question is the focus of a recent article by Matthew Lynch, chairman of the department of elementary and special education and an associate professor of education at Langston University, in Langston, Okla. In the article, Lynch suggests that the use of technology in the classroom may be having some unintended consequences for students and teachers. He writes that with students accustomed the instant gratification provided by technology, teachers "must find ways to keep students interested, but not completely abandon tried-and-true methodology." However, he cautions that it remains unclear which traditional teaching methods should remain. 

You can view the full article here.

How do you see technology affecting traditional teaching methods? How do you incorporate technology into your classroom?

German: Ferien Activity

Chris here again. Today I have a fun activity to share with fellow German teachers. This is a two-part activity that I recently used in a second semester class on the first day back from Spring Break. I first had students get into groups of 4-5 and they then proceeded to interview each other about their Spring Break activities. Students were required to take notes on their partners' information. I then collected all of this material and created several cards with each containing one (hopefully unique) piece of information from each student. These were then randomly distributed back to the students, hopefully avoiding someone getting their own information. Once all the students had a card they were then required to change these statements into questions and begin the search for the classmate whose information matched the card. This allowed the entire class to participate and presented several opportunities to practice asking questions.

Students really enjoyed the activity and were free to subsequently form small groups in order to continue discussing what they did over Spring Break. Feel free to give the activity a try and let me know what worked and didn't, and what you would do differently.

News: When the economy sinks, the Irish turn to German

In a recent op-ed, writer Derek Scally describes his observations on how the European economy tends to dictate people's attitudes toward languages. When Ireland experiences a downturn, people on the Emerald Isle will scramble to learn German to work in its more prosperous economy. 

As Scally notes, Germany, Austria and Switzerland have started a campaign to promote the benefits of learning the most-spoken language in Europe -- --no matter the economic environment. You can read more about this development via the articled linked here. The article and campaign site contains useful information for German teachers interested in promoting their programs to potential students.

German: Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil (song)

Here is Christina with another fun German song: "Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil"
It is one of my all-time favorite songs! Enjoy!

Believe it or not, Schnappi, the little crocodile, reached № 1 on the German charts in 2005, and it also topped the singles charts in Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. Everybody seems to love this cute little guy and the song is a real "Ohrwurm!" - You and your students will not be able to get it our of your head!

Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil.
Komm aus Ägypten,
das liegt direkt am Nil.
Zuerst lag ich in einem Ei,
Dann schni-schna-schnappte 

ich mich frei.

Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp
Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil,
Hab scharfe Zähne,
und davon ganz schön viel.
Ich schnapp mir was ich schnappen kann,
Ja schnapp zu, weil ich das so gut kann.

Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp
Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil,
Ich schnappe gern,
das ist mein Lieblingsspiel.
Ich schleich mich an die Mama ran,
Und zeig ihr wie ich schnappen  kann.

Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp
Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil,
Und vom Schnappen,
da krieg ich nicht zu viel.
Ich beiß dem Papi kurz ins Bein,
Und dann, dann schlaf ich einfach ein.

Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp
Schni schna schnappi
Schnappi schnappi schnapp

Schnappi, the Little Crocodile

I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
I come from Egypt,
that's situated right on the Nile
First I layed in an egg
Then I sna-sna-snapped 

my way to freedom.

Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
I have sharp teeth,
and many of them
I snap and snatch everything I can reach
And I snap because that's what I do best.

Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
I like to snap,
it's my favourite game
I sneak up to my mom
And show her how good I can snap.

Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
And I never get enough
of snapping
I bite my dad's leg
And then I just fall asleep.

Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
