PopuLLar is a European Union funded, innovative education project designed to harness music, the primary social interest of secondary school students, in to their language learning. There is a huge need to motivate secondary school students, in particular, to learn languages, focus digital competencies and be creative; and music is the key. The project asks students to write their own lyrics to songs of their choice. They then translate their songs in to the target language they are learning. The students then record their song and share it with students all over Europe. Students are allowed to combine their love of music, with creativity, literacy, digital competencies, group collaboration and use LWULT languages.
