Months of the Year with a popular song



Today I'd like to encourage you to use popular songs to review vocabulary. Students like them very much and remember words better after listening to the song several times. This time the song is sung by Boney M. and it presents the names of all months of the year. Watch the video, please and do the task you can download from the link below the film. Have fun!
