overview
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
language learning basic theory
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
the importance of listening
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
three examples of folk songs and their cultural context
Three Examples of Folk Songs: and their cultural context
  • Ru Con, Lý Đât Giồng, Qua Cầu Gió Bay
  • Lyrics and Meaning
  • Popularity: Phô Biến: The popularity of each song connotes a different context
ru 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 Việt school districts

Ru Con
  • 1. Gió mùa thu mẹ ru mà con ngủ
  • Năm (ơ) canh chày, năm (ơ) canh chày, thức đủ vừa năm
  • Hỡi chàng chàng ơi, hỡi người người ơi 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 cơn mà gió ấm Cha (ơ) con về, cha (ơ) con về, con nắm tay cha
  • Hỡi nàng nàng ơi, hỡi người người ơi Tôi nhớ tới người, tôi nhớ tới người 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!
l t gi ng
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 (mẹ của em) approve of the situation

Lý Đât Giồng
  • Trên đất giồng mình chờ đợi ai nghe tiếng hò mà lòng trộm thương
  • Hỡi cô gánh nước 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 một mình anh Thương với chờ là chờ đợi ai
  • Khổ thân con khỉ nó ở lùm
  • Đất không mà lo cuốc
  • Lo dòm lo dòm người ta tang tình tang tính tình tang tang tình tang tính tình tang
qua c u gi bay
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

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 rơi Rằng a ối a à qua cầu, tình tình tình đánh rơi

  • 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

benefits assessment seassi methodology
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
