The Day Sting Came to Our Classroom – A Lesson Plan on “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You”

As I have mentioned in other blog posts, I love teaching with songs – and students love it too, even if they have never heard the specific songs before! I must admit that very often I use songs I personally love – and today’s is one of them. Sting is one of my favourite artists and the particular song is super too, I think.

I have also realised that I have a lot of lesson plans with songs and I will share them more often in the future!

The song I have chosen and have used with my students in Greece and now here in Switzerland is If I Ever Lose My Faith in You. Depending on the context and country, it could be slightly controversial – but the activities I have created are pretty neutral. I hope you enjoy them and if you have more ideas, feel free to share in the comments!

Here is the video:

And the lesson plan.

  1. Hi Vicky!

    Well, to tell the truth never heard this song from STING, but I really enjoyed it! Working with adults and teens, songs are really interesting and they get more engaged in the activity as well. Music can take us beyond our expectations.

    Thanks for sharing it with us!!

  2. Thanks Vicky for the great discussion questions and ideas. I love that song and I hadn’t heard it for ages.
    Thanks Aphrodite for reminding me of Lyrics training. It complements an idea I read today. 😉
