It’s only Rock ‘n’ Roll, but I like it!

What would England be without its music? Music is sooooo big in this country that without doubt it’s impossible to even think about teaching English properly without talking about it. I have told you thousand times in class that knowing a language is not just knowing how to speak it but LOVING (yes LOVING with capital letters) what that language implies culturally. How can you teach or learn something you don’t love? I can’t possibly imagine that!

Our trip through the history of English music started last October when Nick came to talk about one of his great passions. However, this wasn’t enough for you and, in the last class before Christmas, you suggested working on a task about music. The task would be the creation of a timeline about English music from the 60s up to the present day and the oral presentation of your work to the rest of the class. I also said that with the music you included on your timelines I would update the Spotify list that Nick created when he came. Well, you should always keep a promise so here is the list:

 

As for your work, you have done a great job. You can have a look at the timelines by clicking on the photo:

    What an impressive piece of work, it’s really cool to see some of the artists you’ve chosen to talk about. I hope you enjoyed working on the task as much as I have reading (and listening to) the results 🙂
