Sing-a-long with “Frosty the Snowman”


academiaciudadlieaninvierno

It’s Christmas again and in many shops you can hear all the festive songs playing. At the Language Corner academy in La Elipa we have a singing snowman sitting next to our Christmas tree. But do you know what song he is singing? It is “Frosty the Snowman,” written by Jack Rollins and Steve Nelson in 1950 and now an Amercian Christmas classic. Now, everyone knows that listening to(and sometimes singing!) songs is a great way to learn English, so here below we have the lyrics to the song, if you want to sing along, you can do that here…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6zW225k_O0

Enjoy!!

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman, was a jolly happy soul,
With a corn cob pipe and a button nose, and two eyes made of coal.Frosty the Snowman, is a fairytale, they say.
He was made of snow, but the children know he came to life one day.There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found,

For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around!

Oh, Frosty, the Snowman, was alive as he could be;
and the children say he could laugh and play,
just the same as you and me.

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump,
look at Frosty go.

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump,
over the hills of snow.

Frosty the Snowman, knew the sun was hot that day,
so he said, “Let’s run, and we’ll have some fun now, before I melt away.”

Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there, all around the square,
sayin’, “Catch me if you can.”

He led them down the streets of town, right to the traffic cop;

and only paused a moment, when he heard him holler, “Stop!”

For Frosty, the Snowman, had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye, sayin’ “Don’t cry, I’ll be back again some day.”

For those people that are not interested in having English classes in Madrid and also are not able to participate in the Saturday workshops we have planned, how about giving The Language Corner’s Idiom calendar as a present. You, or your friends, can spend each month of 2016 learning a new idiom. (Idioms are common English expressions. Learning them will help you speak with more fluency). This calendar was designed by one of our very own native and qualified teachers, Daniel Matthews. Calendars are 10€ and are available for order at either Language School: Calle Gerardo Cordón, 51 Metro: La Elipa (l2) or Calle Gandi, 19 Metro: La Almudena (L2) or Garcia Noblejas (L7).

A beautiful gift for yourself or a friend, this calender will help you improve your English at home. Each month you will have a wonderful idiom on display with an explanation and sample sentence. If you are trying to improve your English in Madrid, this is an excellent idea!
