July 2009 – The ALL-NEW Tune Into English website is now online!!!


Dear Teacher,

Regular visitors to www.tuneintoenglish.com will have seen its transformation over the last few days.

The most useful feature of the new, improved website is a Search area on the Downloadable Worksheets page of the Teachers’ Area, allowing you to find the most appropriate worksheet for your students in seconds! As well as the YouTube video, there is now also an audio track for each song.

This page is now password protected, so please Sign Up to continue accessing the web’s best resource for learning English through pop music.

With the sad news of Michael Jackson’s passing, the first of this month’s additions to the Downloadable Worksheets page is Heal The World, based on material in Team Up In English, published by ELI.

The worksheet for Thriller is also online, and the Karaoke page has a selection of the King of Pop’s hits.

The Summer mood is reflected in the next two worksheets – Claudia Cantaluppi of Como submitted Come Dancing by The Kinks, while James Ratcliff, from St. Etienne de Montluc (France), contributed Tom Waits’ wonderful The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me).

Thank you to all who have sent in worksheets, and for helping Tune Into English grow – I look forward to receiving your future contributions.

Those of you considering a trip to Naples may be interested in reading Fergal Kavanagh’s review (and seeing his photos) of some of the more interesting corners of the city, published this month on www.stay.com. You can access the Naples page directly from the About Us area of the Tune Into English website.

Finally, with the new site online, it seems appropriate that last month The Global Language Monitor announced that Web 2.0 has become the millionth English word or phrase to enter the language. You can read more at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8092549.stm.

Like most of you, Tune Into English is now on its Summer break and will return in September – I look forward to hearing from you in the new academic year.

Have a great summer break!

Best wishes,

Fergal Kavanagh
