Learn English with Frozen


The recent Disney movie Frozen was a huge success with had thousands of people singing Let it go all over the world. I too was assaulted by a bunch of Japanese six year olds in the hall the other day who promptly began singing a Frozen song. They had learnt it at their English Cram school.


You too can utilise this movie to help your students learn. Kids will naturally pay attention and try to learn something that interests them, so why not utilise their love of Disney movies to teach them English.


Click read more to see how you can use Frozen in your English Lessons.












 
Let it go is probably your safest bet. Most children already know it in their own language, and are more than happy to sing it over and over again in English. Here is the Youtube video which you can view for free. It's from the sing along version of the film. It’s probably best to teach them the chorus, and once they have that mastered you can consider teaching them the entire song. I think the children would get more out of it as well if you take the time to explain what various words mean, like Let is go, turn away, slam the door, I don't care, the cold never bothered me. They might not have the attention span to sit through a word by word explanation of the song, but you can utilize it to teach them various phrases.






But you shouldn't stop at just teaching them songs. Here are some great Frozen books and videos that I found while browsing through Amazon. I think they’re great for teaching even native speakers how to read. Clicking on the product will take you to the Amazon page.


Picture books are great for reading out loud to small children, and you can also utilize them for teaching the older children how to read. The read along book is also great for children who want to try reading alone in English as well.

The DVD is also great to show in class, and it never hurts to have the soundtrack either. If you're ever forced to do a stage show for kindergarten or a cram school, Frozen isn't a bad choice.
 

Materials for Eary learners

For kids who are still learning the ABCs. Here is a great ABC song video which shows picures of Forzen with every letter of the alphabet.



Here is also a great Frozen ABC game called Spot it which comes with a nice Olaf plushy. The game comes which various different ABC cards with different ABCs and images that you can use to play many different ABC games with your child. Click on Olaf to find out more.









And here's a great ABC practice book which you can use to motive your child or students to practice they ABC's. It's also not a bad idea to photocopy the pages so that you can use them in class or do the same activity muliple times. Small children learn best through repitition, and it will probably take them a while before they get tired of Frozen. Click on the book to find out more.

  1. I think everyone wants to ensure that they present their best work at all times. This is so whether someone is writing in English or another language. Of course, it easier when you are writing in the language that you grew up speaking.
