November 2021 – Pop Music Vocabulary video series

Dear Teacher,

Tune Into English has started a new occasional series of short videos (in Italian) explaining language used in pop songs. There are currently four online, with new videos coming soon – be sure to share these with your students and follow Tune on Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok and YouTube for new ones!

The Tune Into English Roadshow

The Roadshow had its first presentations in almost 20 months in October, with Primary and Media shows in Bari. These were a great success, and thank you to the teachers for their very positive comments. The show will be presented in Tuscany and Puglia in the coming weeks and I would be delighted to come to your school this year. The online Game Show is now available for smaller groups.

See videos from all Roadshow tours, from 2005
