April 2015 – A very Happy Easter!


Dear Teacher,

Easter celebrations have now begun, I hope you have a restful break.

It’s April, a month that has inspired many songwriters – can you match the artists to their songs? The answers are on www.tuneintoenglish.com.

April’s New Downloadable Worksheets
Easter is a time of rebirth, and Paul McCartney is back in the charts! This month’s additions are all Beatle-related.

Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney – FourFiveSeconds
Released just over two months ago, this song marked Paul McCartney’s return to the Top 10 after almost 30 years. This opposites worksheet was submitted by Mena Bianco from Naples.

The Beatles – Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
This worksheet, written by Laura Casolaro, Rome, matches images to phrases and is ideal for dyslexic students.

John Lennon – Working Class Hero
This simple, listening for the correct word, activity was written by Noelia Rivas from Uruguay.
