Music and English Teaching Program for Preschool Education

Music is essential in children’s lives. Using songs and musical activities for learning a foreign language is very fruitful for different affective, cognitive and linguistic reasons (Calatrava, 2016). I will present a program of Teaching English and Music in Preschool Education based in interdisciplinary teaching and applied at a state school in Barcelona. The English contents, from Macmillan “Captain Jack” collection and music content, from the school syllabus, have been fused together.

What will you get out of this session? This talk will present an investigation of an innovative teaching program applied in a real state school of Barcelona. Attendees will be able to see an example of CLIL where Music and English were fused.
