ESL Songs with phonetics: Can’t stop the feeling, Justin Timberlake!

Here’s one for all you Justin Timberlake lovers out there; Can’t stop the feeling. I saw this songs first on Eurovision, yes I am sad and yes I do watch it. Below is an activity for your students once they know the phonetic alphabet. If you haven’t taught your students phonetics yet, then have a look at ways to teach phonetics.

There are a couple ways you can do this lesson.

1- Students listen to the song first and try to fill the gaps. Then put the words in the correct columns and listen again.
2- Students look at the missing words first and put them in the correct columns. Then listen to the song and complete the gaps.

I’ve prepared the song with numbered gaps, an activity to put the words in the correct column, plus the full lyrics and answers. I plan to get my students to learn the chorus and sing it a few times. Everything is on this word document: Justin Timberlake; Can’t stop the Feeling

Have fun!
