Songs: Using songs is always motivating for children because they like music and movement. Besides, through this appealing resource we can get them to become familiar with the FL culture. To make the most of songs, it is useful to divide the sequence into three stages. In the Pre-stage, we can motivate students and create an interest by eliciting language or showing images of the group or singer. Similarly, in this stage we can pre-teach vocabulary so that they can distinguish chunks of language in a first listening. In the second stage, students can listen and show understanding through different means, ticking in a chart, raising up a flashcard as they listen to a word, etc. Finally, in the post-stage they can transfer the language to other situations. As an example for the third cycle of primary education, we may use authentic songs by the Beatles or an easy-to-understand country song.
