Video review of Week 2

David, one of our educators, reviews week two in this video and discusses the highlights of the week.

David talks about his love of music that many of you share. His highlights of the week include how music can be used to help us learn English, music used in social projects and music as a form of protest.

He mentions a comment from Sony HO, who has an amazing music collection and how Alina Polivoda practised English with music. He quotes Manidipa Das on music as protest.

He gives example of websites that could help you use music to practise English, including LyricsTraining and Musixmatch.

We also asked you to share music you love from your country. We’ve had nominations from all across the world, and you can enjoy the resulting The Exploring English 2017 World of Music Playlist here.

Finally, David thanked everyone who attended the Facebook Clinic and asked lots of great questions. Don’t worry if you missed the clinic - you can read the discussion here.
