Uh-huh!

Assalamualaikum
Saya jumpa video ini di sebuah laman web yang mengajar Bahasa Inggeris kepada kanak-kanak. Ianya sangat sesuai untuk dipraktikkan di sekolah. Saya salin semula arahan yang diberikan.















Teaches

They don't get any simpler than this. For a little bit of insight into the creation of this song, check out Devon's Blog.

This song is just a lot of fun. And for ESL/EFL students, this song helps them move beyond formulaic yes/no responses to more natural, kid-like responses. If you ask a native-English speaking child, "Do you like ice cream?" she will almost certainly NOT answer "Yes, I do." Kids say things like "yep" or "uh-huh!" So, while it is important for children to understand and be able to use expressions like "Yes, I do" and "No, I don't", it's also important for students to learn some of the more informal, natural expressions that children use.

This song also helps children learn the rhythm of English. Adult ESL/EFL learners often have a very hard time hearing and saying "Uh-huh" and "Unh-unh"...two similar sounds with totally different intonations. Children who learn this song get a quick lesson in the importance of intonation.
