The Beatles are an epoch,
It's interesting for us,
I mean my generation
And the students of my class.
The songs are so powerful
To master English well,
I use them rather often,
It's interesting, should tell.

I always enjoy listening to Beatles. I wonder how students aged 19- 20 would react to using their music lyrics in ELT...Look forward to the plenery tomorrow

This is the first time to attend IATEFL sessions online. I do like to thank all the organisers. Teaching using the Beatles songs is wonderful idea . It teaches moral and language. As a foreign language learner and a teacher . I have learnt the English using songs , which gave me an exposure for the language and allow me to know the concepts of the words. It also increased my language understanding and the culture. The session reminds me the golden age.

The session was a useful one,
Lots of examples and some fun.
Thanks, David Crystal, for your work,
It was a useful and cognitive talk.
Those blends...
We don't speak much of them at school,
But having listened to the speaker,
I find them really cool!
Our life has changed, the language too,
But still we wish we grammar knew.

Yes, blends DO indicate output growth...true indicators of spoken language...
