MOON and STARS/LOCARNO

Avete già sentito del programma musicale stupendo tra l’8.8.2011-17.7.2011 che sarà offerto a Locarno nell’ambito dei famosi “MOON & STARS”?

Spero che possiate così anche migliorare le vostre conoscenze linguistiche.

Have you already heard about the fantastic artists Locarno is expecting for the open-air concerts in Locarno between the 8th and 17th July 2011?

I hope that you can in this way also improve you language knowledge.

Habt ihr schon von den fantastischen”Moon & Stars” Konzerten gehört, die zwischen dem 8.und 17.Juli 2011 in Locarno gegeben werden? Ich hoffe,

dass ihr dank dieser Musik auch eure Sprachkenntnisse verbessern könnt.

BRYAN ADAMS

Here is the link to the song”EVERYTHING I DO I DO IT FOR YOU“: http://www.lyricstraining.com/game3256.htm You can listen to the song and at the same time do an exercise.There are three difficulty levels in this kind of exercises.

You have to fill the missing words into the gaps and the music will stop if it is to fast for you to follow. Click on “backspace” if you want to relisten to the music or on “tab” for the missing

word to be filled in..

Some words or expressions from the song: Don’t tell me it’s not worth trying/fighting: /Non mi dire che non vale la pena di provare di battersi/

Sag mir nicht, dass sich ein Versuch nicht lohnt/dass sich kämpfen nicht lohnt.

You know it’s true./Sai che è vero./Du weisst, dass es wahr ist.

There’s nothing to hide/Non c’è niente da nascondere/Es gibt nichts zu verbergen.

There’s nowhere unless you’re there./Non c’è nulla, (nessun posto) se tu non ci sei./Es  gibt nichts, (keinen Ort) ausser du bist dort.

Here is a link to a video where it is explained how to create your own song activities:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPIXUZY5mPQ

YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL/ JOE COCKER

This is the link to the song activity I created for beginners  “You are so beautiful”http://www.lyricstraining.com/game5852.htm
ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK/STING – with subtitles!

PER STUDENTI DI LINGUA ITALIANA

Last but not least I would like to mention the following linkhttp://dartagnan.ch/static.php?op=canzoni.txt&npds=1 because here you can read the lyrics of songs in English and getquite good transaltions into Italian.  You can either look  for songs in foreign languages in alfabetical order,  for songs in foreign languages by the name of the singers or soundtracks.

On the right hand of some  lyrics there is the icon of a loudspeaker and there should also be the possibility of listening to the music. I don’t now, however, whether it works always.
