9 Jazz Chants Jazz chants are based on a combination of repetition and learned response. Jazz chants set everyday situational English to strong rhythms that give the user practice with pronunciation, stress and the patterns of English. The rhythm is the glue that holds the chant together and you find that the language “sticks” in your head and so aids learning. They are like Raps, poems or dialogues with a clear steady beat and rhythm and the Chinese teachers respond well to the chants as they are familiar with this method of choral chanting. They are an effective and fun approach to language learning but they also provide a good way to model and then repeat.

10 Jazz Chants Method The essential element in presenting a chant is to maintain a clear, steady beat and rhythm. Review the chant-the cultural context, the situation. Model the chant. Suggest that they tap out the rhythm with a pencil or tap the table with their fingers as they listen to the chant. Choral chanting-take one line or section at a time depending on the ability of the class. Practice any parts, pronunciation that the students have difficulty with. Group or individual chanting. Act out the chant if necessary or helpful. Personalize the chants-substitute their own names, situations etc. Exercises based on the chants.

11 Personal questions Where were you born? I’d rather not say. Where are you from? I’d rather not say. How tall are you? How old are you? How much do you weigh? I’d rather not say. How much rent do you pay? I’d rather not say. How much do you earn? I’d rather not say. Why aren’t you married? I’d rather not say. Why don’t you have children? I’d rather not say. Where were you last night? Why weren’t you home? Did you stay out late? Did you come home alone? Did you have a good time? Did you see a good play? Did you go to a concert? I’d rather not say. Practice with questions-where, how, how much, why? Acceptable questions to ask-becoming increasingly more personal. I’d rather not say is a polite way to avoid answering a question.

12 Jazz Chants Where can I buy a ticket? Excuse me, where's the coffee shop? Not here! It's behind the ticket office. Excuse me, where's the coffee shop? Not here! It's across from the exit.
