Impara l’inglese con le canzoni di Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran è una giovane cantautore inglese che negli ultimi anni è diventato l’artista più ascoltato su Spotify.

Le sue canzoni sono molto piacevoli e facili da capire, così abbiamo deciso di proporvi oggi un’attività un po’ speciale che vi consentirà di imparare l’inglese in modo divertente.

Abbiamo scelto per voi 2 canzoni di Ed Sheeran super famose, che sicuramente già conoscerete e che avrete sentito migliaia di volte.

Per svolgere l’attività avrete bisogno del video della canzone (che vi lasciamo nel link) e del testo, che troverete in questa pagina. Per rendere l’esercizio più interessante abbiamo cancellato alcune parole … sta a voi inserire negli spazi vuoti la parola inglese corretta!

Quindi, l’esercizio consiste di tre fasi:

  1. Ascoltare la canzone cercando di capire il significato generale.

  1. Ascoltate la canzone una seconda volta, questa volta con il testo davanti, per cercare di inserire le parole mancanti.

  1. Ascoltare nuovamente il brano e divertirsi cantando!

Siete pronti?

Via!

CASTLE ON THE HILL – video

Testo:

When I was six years old, I _____ my leg

I was running from my brother and his friends

Tasted the _______ perfume of the mountain grass, I rolled ______

I was younger then

Take me back to when I

 

Found my heart and broke it here

Made friends and lost them through the ______

And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know, I’ve grown

But I can’t _____ to go home

 

I’m on my way

_______ at ninety down those country lanes

Singing to Tiny Dancer

And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real

When we watched the ______ over the castle on the hill

 

Fifteen years old and smoking hand rolled _______

Running from the law through the backfields and getting _______ with my friends

Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon I did it right

But I was ______ then

Take me back to when

 

We found weekend jobs, when we got paid

And buy ______ spirits and drink them straight

Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh, how we’ve grown

I can’t wait to go home

 

I’m on my way

Driving at ninety down those country lanes

Singing to Tiny Dancer

And I ______ the way you make me feel, it’s real

When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

 

Over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

 

One friend left to sell clothes

One works down by the coast

One had two kids but lives _____

One’s brother overdosed

 

One’s already on his second wife

One’s just barely getting by

But these ______ raised me

And I can’t wait to go home

 

And I’m on my way

I still _______ these old country lanes

When we did not know the answers

And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s _____

When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

 

Over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill
