Musical Echoing for Learning English Program is a brand new and unique method combines the most pleasant and effective elements of the Multiple Intelligences (musical, visual, kinesthetic and linguistic) and the most successful methodologies (chanting, using music, picture reading, TPR and story telling) to teach vocabulary, sentences, paragraphs and stories in musical -story form.
Musical Echoing uses pictures as cues, reinforcements, clarification or memory guides; and specially selected music as a vehicle with which sequences sentences or stories are rhythmically listened to and later chanted. Physical gestures and movements may also be added later.
