ideas for French and German songs you can use in class

Overall rating 4 out of 54.3 (13 ratings)

Last updated 05 October 2012, created 02 September 2009, viewed 9,817

I copied and pasted everyone’s ideas from three discussion threads on which songs we can use to try to inspire kids. It’s a numbered list which will hopefully make it easier to go down bit by bit, investigating and adding to our repertoire. Thank you to all the great people who contributed, whose More… ideas are here but whose names aren’t- please don’t take offence at this- just accept a massive thank you from me and everyone else who is inspired by you.

brilliant list. Unfortunately you-tube is blocked in school which means I really will have to find out a way to upload onto a memory stick. Any geeks out there who know how?

A really good list. Thank-you for this. I like Silbermond and my favourite has to be Bill Bailey singing the Hokey Cokey in German. You can find it on youtube - fantastic!
