Certainly, it might be difficult to imagine what the world would look like if tunes on the radio or on TV were off, or one could not listen to favourite song when working at home or driving a car. Not only do songs provide pleasure, but they also enhance language practice and positively affect vocabulary acquisition and memorisation. The author chose teaching with the use of songs as her target in the study because listening to music in English is highly motivating for students and songs are easily accessible for all learners. The prime objective of this MA thesis is to investigate whether teaching English vocabulary with the use of songs contributes to developing students’ better memorisation of vocabulary. This MA thesis consists of three chapters; the first two sections deal with a theoretical background and the third one focuses on an experiment with the use of songs at primary school.
