Here is a listening activity for my ESL students based on Céline Dion’s multiple platinum hit, “My Heart Will Go On.” We are reading about the sinking of the Titanic, and I simply thought this would be an enjoyable listening activity for the students, and a way for them to sing along with this very popular song. I hope your students enjoy it, too.
Watch the YouTube video, and then select the correct missing lyrics.

I enjoy music as do most of my students, and we all know that passion makes the journey toward our goals quicker and more enjoyable. So, here’s Katy Perry’s hit song, “Roar,” to help students develop their English language (and singing!) skills. Listen to the video and see if you can select the correct lyrics and sing along with Katy.
