Hi Lilian,
I would love to use some of these activities in my classes but I have the hardest time trying to download them. Do you have any suggestions of ways I can get these songs?

Lilian Marchesoni said

Hi Marcella! I can't figure out why you can't download the activities... Do you have Word 2007 in your pc? Well, anyways, I can send the activity you want to your email... Just tell me which one(s)... :D

I'm sorry, I meant to say I couldn't download the songs not the activities.

Hello Marcella... I'm sorry, too. I have all these songs on my computer. However, I can't make them available here due to copyright issues... I can give you a copy, though... See you around!

Marcella, maybe you could just go to youtube and find the song there... It's what I do, I find it easier...

Lilian, this is fantastict, thank you so much for sharing it with us!!

Xará... May I suggest a song??? I´m not sure our Teens would like it, but adults sure do! ;-)
Blue Moon (Grease version)
Let me know what you think about it, ok?

Lilian Reis said

Marcella... another option for find songs is www.4shared.com , ok? ;-)

One more suggestion... now the website www.keepvid.com (usually used to download videos) has the option to download only the audio of the video, so you can find the video of the song you want on youtube and save only the mp3. :)
