3. What is the reason of your not using songs in teaching EFL?

b. It is not effective

c. It is not appropriate for my students (their interests, age, etc)

d. Your variant, please specify

e. I use songs in teaching

4. What methodological advantages do you think using a song in teaching foreign languages has? (e.g. songs help students to relax) (a detailed answer is welcome)

Thank you for your answers!
