1 Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand. -Chinese Proverb The Transcendental Learner

2 Overview This project acts as an exploration of several topics, seeking to argue the importance of introducing an increasingly effective teaching methodology with the incorporation of a musical experience for the purposes of language learning

3 Language Learning: Basic Theory Beyond the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) teachers can use other techniques to expand on a learners reproductive skills Students of all levels have an inherent need to actively engage with the material presented; for both young and old learners this can be an extremely involved experience, capitalizing on each of the 7 types of learning, especially auditory learning

4 The Importance of Listening According to Snow (1996) in More than a Native Speaker; many language programs devote more attention to speaking rather than to listening Additionally classroom exercises with listening components often consists of slow, clear classroom practice A student who is a good listener can generally keep a conversation going by being a good listener and occasionally responding with simple questions, short answers, or even grunts and nods Listening exercises encourage students to develop a range of cultural background knowledge that helps them predict what they might hear in order to comprehend a message

5 Three Examples of Folk Songs: and their cultural context Ru Con, Lý Đât Ging, Qua Cầu Gió Bay Lyrics and Meaning Popularity: Phô Bin: The popularity of each song connotes a different context

6 Ru Con 1. Gió mùa thu mẹ ru mà con ngủ Na ̆ m (o ̛ ) canh chày, na ̆ m (o ̛ ) canh chày, thức đủ vừa na ̆ m Hỡi chàng chàng o ̛ i, hỡi ngu ̛ ời ngu ̛ ời o ̛ i Em nhớ tới chàng, em nhớ tới chàng Hãy nín nín đi con, hãy ngủ ngủ đi con Con hời là con hỡi, con hỡi con hời Con hỡi con hời, hỡi con! 2. Đến mùa xuân trong co ̛ n mà gió ấm Cha (o ̛ ) con về, cha (o ̛ ) con về, con nắm tay cha Hỡi nàng nàng o ̛ i, hỡi ngu ̛ ời ngu ̛ ời o ̛ i Tôi nhớ tới ngu ̛ ời, tôi nhớ tới ngu ̛ ời Hãy nín nín đi con, hãy ngủ ngủ đi con Con hời là con hỡi, con hỡi con hời Con hỡi con hời, hỡi con! Southern Folk Song: a nice but sad melody, most famous as a motherly expression of loneliness, or nostalgia at the husband being away as she sings an infant to sleep at night, causes her to think about many things Not many young people know Ru Con, although it was apparently popular in many Vit school districts

7 Lý Đât Ging Trên đất giồng mình chờ đợi ai nghe tiếng hò mà lòng tr ̂ m thu ̛ o ̛ ng Hỡi cô gánh nu ̛ ớc bên đàng Còn bao là bao gánh nữa Để qua là qua gánh dùm tang tình tang tính tình tang tang tính tình là tình tính tang Trên cách đồng chỉ m ̂ t mình anh Thu ̛ o ̛ ng với chờ là chờ đợi ai Khổ thân con khỉ nó ở lùm Đất không mà lo cuốc Lo dòm lo dòm ngu ̛ ời ta tang tình tang tính tình tang tang tình tang tính tình tang On the other actually a situation where, despite the maternal sentiments of the song, most mothers don't know how to sing it Contrasts with Qua Câu Gió Bay in that the mother figure does not (m ca em) approve of the situation

8 Qua Cầu Gió Bay Yêu nhau cởi áo ối à trao nhau Về nhà dối rằng cha dối mẹ a à a á a Rằng a ối a à qua cầu, tình tình tình gió bay Rằng a ối a à qua cầu, tình tình tình gió bay Yêu nhau cởi nón ối à cho nhau Về nhà dối rằng cha dối mẹ a à a á a Rằng a ối a à qua cầu, tình tình tình sứt quai Rằng a ối a à qua cầu, tình tình tình sứt quai Yêu nhau cởi nhẫn ối à trao nhau Về nhà dối rằng cha dối mẹ a à a á a Rằng a ối a à qua cầu, tình tình tình đánh ro ̛ i Rằng a ối a à qua cầu, tình tình tình đánh ro ̛ i Refers to the independence of two lovers, from the notorious Ho Bác Nính- in North Vietnam- expresses relations between the two young lovers and their ability to express themselves openly Qua Câu Gió Bay was composed as a work song, and is still sung in an ask and answer format by field workers today

9 SEASSI Vietnamese Methodology for Musical Study 1) Elicits a word by word translation from the students 2)Elicits a more fluid translation from the students 3)One teacher then sings through the song one time 4)Next the teacher sings through the song with students repeating line by line 5)Finally the students and the teacher sing through the song in its entirety 6)Emphasis is on introducing the culture more holistically, rather than a specific curriculum

10 Music as a means of Development: A Study Routine This material about to be presented is based: on The Lexical Approach described by Michael Lewis in Implementing the Lexical Approach (1993) Other pillars of learning acquired through The Communicative Approach and methods adapted from Don Snow in More than a Native Speaker Though this project no longer focuses on English Language Instruction, the methodology presented here will be compared to the SEASSI methodology

11 Lyrically Based Lexical Acquisition Materials: An authentic audio passage relevant to the students target context: a classic song and lyrics Assumption: There will be no more than 5-7 new vocabulary words in the passage. Primary Staging: 3 Listening Stages and 2 Vocabulary Stages

12 Lyrically Based Lexical Acquisition Secondary staging: Pronunciation Vocabulary and Pronunciation Reinforcement Controlled Practice Language Exploration Record Review

13 Benefits Assessment: Lyrically Based Lexical Approach The Lyrically Based Lexical Approach ensures that learners are learning new vocabulary from the song and will no doubt memorize it and be able to use it appropriately by the time that they have left the classroom Expands on all four language skills

16 Benefits Assessment: SEASSI Methodology First the SEASSI learning method is simply faster, while the Lexical Approach is excellent for a six-month curriculum, it does not suit the needs of teachers and students in four week intensives sessions Placing multiple levels of learners in a single classroom has its benefits By ensuring that the students are learning simple tunes, this creates an association between auditory and visual memory in the mind of the students This can be particularly helpful when studying a tonal language Furthermore, in the SEASSI methodology we see that the cultural context of the language experience really comes alive
