Chants and songs are often used in language teaching as they provide students with lots of opportunity for repetition in the context of a strong rhythm and/or a catchy tune. Particularly effective with children, they can be used in most, but not all, classroom settings.
Although care must be taken to ensure that the right syllables are stressed, chanting short phrases, simple questions and answers, and even call-and-response helps students get their mouths around new pronunciation and also fix the language in their memories.
