MUSIC AND LANGUAGE...A PERFECT PAIRING


Music is an effective way through which a new language can be learned.  Fifth grade students translated children's songs from English to Haitian-Creole.  This project was designed by Mrs. Fenfert to help students at the Wings Over Haiti School in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti, learn the English language.  Two books were created.  Each book includes English lyrics, Haitian-Creole lyrics, and recordings of the corresponding music.  The traditional "ABC" song is an example of how music impacts language acquisition.  Sing and learn!
