Pronunciation raps - for my students

This one is about all my wonderful students at the Institute of Languages at UNSW in Sydney


We’ve come to Sydney to improve our English
We’re from the world over but have one wish
And that’s to have fun while we learn in the sun
Academic English , general or FEEC,
English for law  or try and reach your peak
With an IELTS score of 7 or more
Grammar and reading speaking and listening
And media studies but who reads the paper
Now teaching how to write on fb might
Help us to improve and then we’d be right
To speak to our mates and go out on dates
Cause how ta fix a boiler or what he had for supper
Is not what Aussies say and the third conditional
past perfect continuous  is far too medicinal
And show me an aussie who says If I were rich
But don’t correct the grammar of your  new aussie friends
Cause if I were rich I’d be able to stay
 in SydneyForever but I know it depends
On my final test score

And Had I been listening I would have learnt more
