Chandelier by Sia

             Mirage Regular



Chandelier is a song laced with haunting melody and tribal escalations that give the song a solemn feel. What's more, its lyrics reflect the thoughts going on inside the singer who was suffering an alcoholism problem. She tries to tell herself that she shouldn't continue drinking anymore, but peer pressure and need for love always brings her back, convincing her that she can handle anything, that she should live life while the moment is there. In other words, she can't give up her addiction. 

Let's us watch the video!

Mirage Regular

Why does she say...


  1. party girls don't get hurt...?
  2. ...when will I learn?
  3. I'm the one 'for a good time call'
  4. I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist?
  5. I'm gonna swing the chandelier?
  6. ...here comes the shame?
  7. help me I'm holding on for dear life...?

Dressed in Black by Sia

                                    Razterhunch Regular



Dressed in Black is a personal song by Sia, both sad and uplifting at the same time.

It probably refers to darkest time in her life when she was battling against drugs, alcohol addiction, and drepression in 2010.

Her boyfriend had died after being hit by a car and she had lost much of her privacy after getting public recognition as a singer. In that situation she contemplated to commit suicide and a friend called her and convinced her to opt out of it.

It is not known if she wrote this beautiful song for that friend or for her husband, Erik Anders Lang, who must have helped her to get out of that situation. What do you think?

Let's work with the song!

CLIL



Glacial Indifference Regular  stands for Content and Language Integrated Learning and refers to teaching subjects such as science, history or geography to students through a foreign language.

According to Marsh, Marsland & Stemberg (2001) CLIL is about using languages to learn. It installs a "hunger to learn" in the student and it gives the opportunity for them to thim about and develop how they communicate in general, even in the first language.

So, what are we waiting for? Let's start!



We'll try a lesson focused on the causes of the Second World War (WWII). It is a listening activity based on a recording form the BBC. Read carefully the preparation and procedure before starting.
