September’s New Downloadable Worksheets

Ciao Adios – Anne-Marie
One of the summer’s biggest hits, this song will feature in this year’s Roadshow. This worksheet was written by regular contributor Mena Bianco from Naples.

But I Do Love You – LeAnn Rimes
This low level worksheet, submitted by Maria Gulczynska, Ancona, features a survey – an ideal way to break the ice with new classes.

Most of the worksheets have been written by your colleagues – perhaps you have prepared one and want to share it?

The opening songs of the 2016-2017 Roadshow were Spirits by The Strumbellas and Stressed Out by twenty one pilots – in the coming days Speak Up will publish the video of this. You can preview it here.
