Talk about a song from your country. Please say

– Why do you like the song?
– Where did you hear it?
– What are the lyrics and the meaning of this song?


Its really difficult to write a truly secular song that readers of various cultures can appreciate. I’m choosing the most common song I can think of. The song that teaches the English language alphabets to students. The A,B,C song.

Invest one minute in brainstorming about this topic’s questions. If you’ve not read my advice on developing each answer in a proper way, please read the lesson on speaking.

PLUS, you can implement the idea of collocations in this answer. Here is the link to a truly useful article: Lessons in speaking – collocations.

I’m a music enthusiast and I love listening to pop songs of various artists. However, my favorite song is an educational song that parents and teachers sing to teach the English language alphabets to little children – the A, B, C song. 

I love this song due to numerous reasons. Firstly, it is a unique way of teaching children the English language alphabets. It combines song and music with education to effectively teach every student. It has performed really well over the last few decades. Secondly, it is an innovative way of combining alphabets with various physical objects. For instance, it connects the alphabet A with Apple and B with Ball. The song video displays these objects to strengthen the cognitive power of children. 

I remember this song from my childhood as my parents and teachers used it to build the foundation of the English language. Surprisingly, I’m using this song to teach this language to my child these days.

The lyrics and meaning of this song are really simple. The song, basically, pronounces the 26 alphabets of the English language and after speaking an alphabet, it speaks an object whose spellings begin with that word. For instance, it pronounces Z and then speaks Zebra. The video version of the song also shows the picture of a Zebra.
