Sing and Learn #Lesson 8
英語讀本： We’ve all had dreams at some point in our lives. We may have achieved them already or we’re still pursuing them. If you’re still working towards it, consider ‘Breaking Free’ from High School Musical an anthem to give yourself some motivation when times get rough. It does have a lot of empowerment in its lyrics. Sometimes, we need an extra push to break free from our normal to achieve our dreams. Nobody said it was easy but try it, see how it goes, and maybe, you’ll be one step closer.
Sing and Learn #Lesson 7
英語讀本： If there’s one thing Disney movies have taught me, is that friendship is really important. The main theme song from Toy Story talks a lot about how friendship is important. No matter how rough life gets, there is always a friend that will always help you get thought it. You might not see each other every week but that is a test of friendship right there, if you can help each other out despite minimal meetups. Friendships are worth keeping and fighting for. Don’t neglect them, especially once you found romance. Both can co-exist together.
Sing and Learn #Lesson 6
英語讀本： Probably one of my all-time favourite Disney songs. This rather slow tune from Aladdin can speak for many of us. Its lyrics are a little cliché but it doesn’t stop us from resonating with it. Both Aladdin and Jasmine confess their love for each other while Aladdin tells her that there is so much out there in the world to experience and that it’s best to experience it with each other. When you find your perfect somebody, don’ just stay in one spot. Go out there and see the world together! There’s so much to see!
Sing and Learn #Lesson 5
英語讀本： Reggae style songs aren’t usually my cup of tea, but when they’re really catchy like Under the Sea, then they’ll be stuck in your head for life. The lyrics are rather humorous as it talks about Sebastian trying to convince Ariel to not leave her home under the sea. There are tons of references to different kinds of animals in the ocean such as trout, sardine, and carp. The song overall isn’t serious, but rather carefree, so listen to it a few times. It’s easy to sing-along to and you’ll be humming it at random times in your life!
Sing and Learn #Lesson 4
英語讀本： Many songs from the Lion King are considered are classics. With ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight,’ the version that plays during Simba and Nala’s scene the middle of the movie is calming yet euphoric. The lyrics though, actually talk about Simba and Nala’s thoughts for each other. For Simba, his past haunts him and but Nala doesn’t seem to care. You know, for many of us, we may not like our past but it makes us who we are today, and someone else may not care about our past, but only about changing ourselves for the better now and in the future.
Sing and Learn #Lesson 3
英語讀本： Who knew this haunting ballad from the movie, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ had some life lessons about love? The theme song from the movie talks about how the 2 characters, Beast and Belle’s relationship. They learn to accept each other’s differences and mistakes, and that they’ve changed each other for the better. For many that are still looking or growing their relationship with their significant other, it’s always a good reminder that relationships aren’t meant to be perfect. The person you are together with is perfect for you, even if there are imperfections and arguments…just like Beast and Belle.
Sing and Learn #Lesson 2
英語讀本： Whenever I think of something spooky and scary, Halloween is the first thing that always comes to mind. Nothing screams like Halloween with this classic from ‘The Nightmare before Christmas.’ You got the spooky instrumental and lyrics that define Halloween. Spiders, snakes, clowns, banshees, skeletons, pumpkins, you name it! It’s also pretty catchy as well, so you’ll have this song stuck in your head, even when it’s not Halloween. Check it out, listen to it a few times, and don’t get scared!
Sing and Learn #Lesson 1
英語讀本： Listening to a song from Frozen 2, what?! You would think songs from the movie are for children but then you have songs like ‘Into the Unknown’, that are for everyone. The song relates to Elsa being comfortable with her life but something is missing, something is left unexplored. She makes the decision to go after this unknown thing later. Sometimes we are very comfortable with our lives and don’t really want to change things. Yet, there’s something new out there, something better. If you know that thing is out there, be like Elsa, don’t sit around and just follow it into the unknown! It will be scary but you won’t know until you try!
