Sheryl Crow and vocabulary learning

Learning new vocabulary can be difficult, how do you remember all these new words? Pictures are good, and labels on things around your house can help but you know that feeling when you have a song in your head, and you can't get it out? I had two students this week and both independently asked what 'winding' meant. After I explained it, the Sheryl Crow song came into my head, "Every day is a winding road" and I played part of it. If you can associate a sound or a song, with a word or phrase or some part of language learning, then it is very easy to remember. All songs have song lyrics somewhere on the internet, so look up your favourite song, get the words and start to sing along.
