David Deubelbeiss, the genius behind EFL Classroom 2.0 and one of the brains behind English Central, tweeted this hilarious “literal” adaptation of an old Monkees music video.

There are one or two slightly risque parts (and I mean barely risque) that probably don’t make it appropriate for a K-12 classroom, but it certainly could be used with adults, and David has supporting materials for it (David also has tons of other resources there — EFL Classroom 2.0 is THE place on the web for ESL/EFL/ELL teachers).

I’ve written about many ways to use music with ELLs, but I have to admit I never thought of this ingenious way before…

(I don’t think the video will come through on an RSS Readers, so you’ll have to click through to see it)
