Subject LANGUAGE Family: Germanic
Abstract: Following Murphey's pioneering papers dealing with teaching foreign languages, especially English, through contemporary songs, this paper provides illustrative examples using German pop songs rather than traditionally folk songs or nursery rhymes to make both teaching and learning German as A Foreign Language (DaF) more fun and at the same time more successful. The classroom examples focus especially on advanced learners of German.
