At International Karaoke Night, students of all levels sing songs in the language that they are studying. Join us for a night of fun, food, music, prizes, and learning about other cultures and their music. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place for Solo Acts, Group Acts, and Whole Class Acts. If you'd like to get on the roster to sing, please contact Helen Stapleton firstname.lastname@example.org or 598-1468 by November 7.
How to participate:
Learning Goals: Preparing for a song is a great opportunity to learn and internalize an authentic text.
1. Search the following sites for a song you want to sing. You are not to sing along with the singer, but rather to sing to an instrumental track. The word, karaoke, is Japanese for empty orchestra.
Stingray Karaoke (Chinese, French, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish)
Click on "Songs" and then filter your search by language.
Youtube (all languages)
Please send the link to an instrumental version of the song, ideally with written lyric.
Karaoke Version (French, German, Italian, Spanish)
Choose your language on the left-hand menu after clicking on "Advanced Search."
2. Once you've found your song, send the link or name of the song to Helen Stapleton email@example.com. Only the first 25 acts will be included, and it is first come, first served.
3. Begin practicing your song well before the event by first singing along with the artist and then trying it by yourself.
4. Perform you song on the evening of Wednesday, November 9! You will receive an estimated time of when your act will be by November 7.
