[SONGs] If You´re Happy and Other Digital English Teaching Resources

song english if youre happy

Music videos with English songs for young learners are considered great digital resources for English teachers. Music videos provided by Super Simple Learning contain more than traditional super simple english songs. And there is never enough of them. These days Super Simple Learning published the new version of traditional “If You´re Happy (and You Know It)” English class song.

“The traditional version of this song can be a little tough for younger learners. If you visit an EFL or ESL class, or even a class of younger native-speakers, you’ll often hear the children singing something like:
If you’re happy (mumble, mumble, mumble) clap your hands!
If you’re happy (mumble, mumble, mumble) clap your hands!
If you’re happy (mumble, mumble, mumble),
(mumble, mumble, mumble)
If you’re happy (mumble, mumble, mumble) clap your hands!

The tempo is often too quick and phrases like “and you know it” and “then your face will surely show it” aren’t easy for young children to sing or understand through gestures and expressions.”

The new version provided by Super Simple Learning retains the traditional melody while the simple lyrics focus on the core vocabulary: emotions like happy, angry, scared and sleepy.

Enjoy the digital learning and teaching!
