English Idioms & Phrasal Verbs with Jose Cuervo

I am not a huge song worksheet teacher. I find that they become too much of a crutch when you can do so many other things. Nonetheless sometimes inspiration strikes and you just can't ignore it!

NOTE: The worksheet and song both include references to alcohol. Please DO NOT use this unless your EFL students are old enough and your school is OK with it.

I repeat THIS SONG MENTIONS ALCOHOL! Please use your best judgement.

This is a simple worksheet where I copied the lyrics and then changed any phrasal verb, idiom, or other word I thought my students wouldn't know. Then I put the words I took out in a word bank. The students need to match the synonym with the original word. I would treat this as a reading exercise and then put the song on to double check their answers.

Next the worksheet checks comprehension by having the students put the events that happen in the song in order.

Finally students are given two different options as a final production task (drawing or writing).

The song is an awesome song for these types of phrases because it is filled with figurative language (can't carry a tune in a bucket, left feet, drown your sorrows, etc). It is country song and I tend to prefer this genre with EFL students. I find the narratives are easier to follow the rhythm slower and the the pronunciation clearer.

Here's a music video you could use in class, or just to listen to the song quickly:

This worksheet (which is just one page, but also includes a one page answer sheet) is available for free on Teachers Pay Teachers. If you don't already have a membership it is FREE just sign up here. If you do download the worksheet please leave a review to tell me what you thought or comment here.

What's your favorite song to use with idioms?  Let us know what you think! Connect with us @C_LaCross or @ESLcarissa

German: Word of the Week - das Kuscheltier




Here is Christina with the German word of the week!

This week:
das Kuscheltier /  the stuffed animal


A "Kuscheltier" is a cuddly toy! I am sure you all had one when you were little. There are many different kind of "Kuscheltiere" but the most famous one is probably the teddy bear (der Teddybär).


Here are some examples of how you can use this word:

Hast du mein Kuscheltier gesehen? / Have you seen my stuffed animal?
Dein Kuscheltier ist in der Waschmaschine. / Your stuffed animal is in the washing machine.
Ich habe ein Kuscheltier gewonnen! / I have won a stuffed animal!
Peter liebt sein Kuscheltier. / Peter loves his stuffed animal.
Mein Kuscheltier heisst Teddy. / The name of my stuffed animal is Teddy.

German: Wir sind Helden - Nur ein Wort (song)




Here is Christina with another great German song:
"Nur ein Wort" by Wir sind Helden.




Wir sind Helden have great lyrics full of word play and idioms! It is fun to have a closer look at the song text of "Nur ein Wort"!



Nur ein Wort

Ich sehe, dass du denkst.
Ich denke, dass du fühlst.
Ich fühle, dass du willst,
aber ich hör dich nicht. Ich
hab mir ein Wörterbuch geliehen,
dir A bis Z ins Ohr geschrien.
Ich stapel tausend wirre Worte auf,
die dich am Ärmel ziehen.
Und wo du hingehen willst,
ich häng an deinen Beinen.
Wenn du schon auf den Mund fallen musst,
Warum dann nicht auf meinen?

Oh bitte gib mir nur ein Oh.
Bitte gib mir nur ein Oh.
Bitte gib mir nur ein,
Bitte bitte gib mir nur ein Wort.

s ist verrückt, wie schön du schweigst,
wie du dein hübsches Köpfchen neigst
Und so der ganzen lauten Welt
und mir
die kalte Schulter zeigst.
Dein Schweigen ist dein Zelt,
du stellst es mitten in die Welt.
Spannst die Schnüre und staunst
stumm,
wenn nachts ein Mädchen drüber fällt.
Zu deinen Füßen
red ich mich
um Kopf und Kragen.
Ich will in deine tiefen Wasser
große Wellen schlagen.

Oh bitte gib mir nur ein Oh.
Bitte gib mir nur ein Oh.
Bitte gib mir nur ein,
Bitte bitte gib mir nur ein Wort.

In meinem Blut werfen
die Endorphine Blasen,
wenn hinter deinen stillen
Hasenaugen die Gedanken rasen.
Just a word

I see that you think
I think that you feel
I feel that you want
But I don’t hear you, I
borrowed a dictionary
Screamed A to Z in your ear
I stockpile a thousand muddleheaded words
That tug at your sleeves
And wherever you want to go
I’ll hold on to your legs
And if you’re at a loss for words
Why don’t you lose yourself in me

Oh, please just give me an oh
Please just give me an oh
Please just give me a
Please, please just give me a word

It’s crazy how beautifully you keep quiet
How you tilt your cute head
And how you give the whole loud world
an me
The cold shoulder
Your silence is your tent
You put it in the middle of the world
You tighten the strings and are silently flabbergasted
When a girl trips over them at night
At your feet
I talk
like a raging waterfall
I want to knock large waves
Into your deep waters

Oh, please just give me an oh
Please just give me an oh
Please just give me a
Please, please just give me a word

In my blood
The endorphins thrust bubbles
When the thoughts race
Behind your quiet rabbit eyes

Spanish: Cenicienta


Hello everyone,

Today's Spanish story for children is Cinderella. You can have your students, even adults, watch the video and try to narrate it themselves, write the story in Spanish, or listen to the story while watching and then doing an activity at the end. Let me know if you can think of other ways to use these stories in the classroom!

Spanish: Antología - Shakira


Hola, Claudia here again. Today I have an old song by Shakira to share which you can use to help your students practice the preterit tense.




Antología - Shakira 

Para amarte necesito una razón
Y es difícil creer que no exista
Una más que este amor
Sobra tanto dentro de este corazón

Y a pesar de que dicen
Que los años son sabios
Todavía se siente el dolor

Porque todo el tiempo que pasé junto a ti

Dejó tejido su hilo dentro de mí


Y aprendí a quitarle al tiempo los segundos

Tú me hiciste ver el cielo más profundo
Junto a ti creo que aumenté más de tres kilos
Con tus tantos dulces besos repartidos
Desarrollaste mi sentido del olfato

Y fue por ti que aprendí a querer los gatos
Despegaste del cemento mis zapatos
Para escapar los dos volando un rato

Pero olvidaste una final instrucción

Porque aún no sé cómo vivir sin tu amor


Y descubrí lo que significa una rosa

Me enseñaste a decir mentiras piadosas
Para poder verte a horas no adecuadas
Y a reemplazar palabras por miradas

Y fue por ti que escribí más de cien canciones
Y hasta perdoné tus equivocaciones
Y conocí más de mil formas de besar
Y fue por ti que descubrí lo que es amar
Lo que es amar

German: Culcha Candela - Von Allein (song)




Here is Christina with another fun German summer song:
"Von Allein" by Culcha Candela, a multicultural Dancehall group founded in Berlin in 2001.

Mit diesem Lied kommt die gute Laune ganz von allein! :)
(With this song happiness comes naturally!)




The lyrics are like the band: multicultural - German mixed with Spanish.



Deutsch
Von Allein

Die Sonne scheint heute die ganze Nacht,
Hängt tausend Zettel 

in die Nachbarschaft.
Wenn's heute lauter wird, dann tut's uns leid.
Komm vorbei
und alles andere kommt dann von allein.

Que que salta
Que mueve tu cuerpo y salta
Que que toca el techo y brinca
Y siente el ritmo es soca
Sigue sigue salta
Que que mueve tu cuerpo salta
Que que toca el techo y brinca
Y siente el ritmo todo el mundo

Keiner fragt wieso.
Keiner fragt warum.
Keiner fragt wie's geht.
Denn es geht schon von allein.
Keiner fragt wohin.
Keiner fragt wie lang.
Keiner fragt mit wem.
Denn es geht schon von allein.
Die Erde dreht sich von allein.
Dein Arsch bewegt sich von allein.
Die Gläser füllen sich von allein.
Alles geht heut‘ von allein.
Deutschland tanzt von allein.
Jeder kann‘s von allein.
Denk nicht nach, lass es sein.
Denn alles geht heut‘ von allein.
Que mueve tu cuerpo
Que estás caliente
Me encantas Mami

Ich mag feiern und ich mag abstylen.
Ein bisschen Party 

muss ab und zu schon mal sein.
Ich will springen, ich will tanzen und schreien.
Alle zusammen, heute bleibt keiner allein.
Wir feiern durch heute die ganze Nacht,
Lassen die Korken knallen mit der ganzen Nachbarschaft.
Jeder zuckt, jeder muckt, jeder muss sich bewegen.
Komm, lass dich einfach gehen.
