The Eurovision Song Contest 2011 was the 56th annual Eurovision Song Contest and was won by the Azerbaijani entry "Running Scared" performed by Eldar & Nigar. The event took place in the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany, following Germany's win in the previous year. The two semi-finals took place on 10 May and 12 May 2011, while the final took place on the evening of 14 May 2011.
My students know my favourite song is “Fairytale” by Alexander Ribak (Norway, 2009), but “Running Scared” by Eldar & Nigar sounds good. I think using music and songs when teaching English can be beneficial for non-native English speaking students as well as fluent speakers. This article deals with our project “Junior Eurovision Song Contest”, where my students and students from different countries (Turkey, Romania, Italy…) developed their imagination and creativity through shows.
What is your favourite song? Please, comment this article. Remember, “ENGLISH IS FUN!!!!” and “Save this blog, your comments are important”
