Listening To The Song Rhythm of the rain Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain Telling me just what a fool I've been I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain And let me be alone again The only girl I care about has gone away Looking for a brand new start But little does she know that when she left that day Along with her she took my heart Rain please tell me now does that seem fair For her to steal my heart away when she don't care I can't love another when my heart's somewhere far away Rain won't you tell her that I love her so Please ask the sun to set her heart a glow Rain in her heart and let the love with you start to grow ※Adjective Clause S + V + Antecedent + Relative Pronoun + Predicate ─────── ────────── main sentence subordinating sentence EX： She is a woman who is respected by everyone. ─── ─── Antecedent connecting word ※Subjunctive Mood I.

When students listen to the song (Input), they can remember the melody at the first. That can attract students’ interests to learn English and improve their listening at the same time. The teacher teaches the wards and sentences of the song making students understand the grammar. And then students sing the song (Output) to make them remember the grammar easily, and it also can improve their pronunciation. This way of teaching grammar by songs fits any age of the learners. It’s good to learners have examples from songs to know how to use grammar.
