This project aims to investigate whether recent research showing strong connections between musical and language skills has had an impact on instructional practice in additional language teaching. An online questionnaire has been designed to provide a 6-month snapshot of the music-related practices of self-selecting modern foreign language teachers. Questions aim to explore to what extent, and in what ways, teachers use music and songs to support learning in the classroom with different age groups and proficiency levels. The questions also address how teachers use musical materials with different groups (e.g., as part of a lesson, as background music to set a positive classroom tone, or both) and their recommendations for other teachers who wish to use music in their modern foreign language classrooms.
