THIS IS AMAZIINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!! Thank you so much for coming up with such an interesting activity. My kids are going to love this! I can't wait to share this with them, I am Amira by the way. I am an English teacher who is teaching in Malaysia. English is my second Language. However, for my kids, English is their 3rd or sometimes even their 4th language. I am trying so hard to show them that learning English should not be burdensome. It is fun! Some of them don't even watch English movies, listen to English songs and read English books. I am trying to catch their interest via English songs. If only you know how grateful I am for this video. Hope you can produce more videos like this. or, can you teach me how to do it?
