A teacher from TikTok teaches English with rap, and it worksPictolic
No wonder they say that students need to find the right approach. Anastasia Mikhailova, an English teacher and blogger, coped with this task with a bang. And the secret of her success lies in the songs of foreign rap artists… Read more about Anastasia's teaching methods and what fruits it gives in our material.
Anastasia Mikhailova is known in TikTok under the pseudonym englishwithrap. According to the information in her profile description, she is 38 years old, she is married and has a 6‑year-old son. In her free time, Anastasia runs a blog in which she teaches other users spoken English and correct pronunciation.
Anastasia's "trick" is that for training she uses well-known hits of foreign rap artists, for example, HDMI hip-hop Bones, Anaconda Nicki Minaj or Up Cardi B.
And users liked this method of teaching. Now 120 thousand people have subscribed to the englishwithrap page.
Anastasia also has an Instagram profile, where she conducts broadcasts with song reviews. Now more than 7 thousand people are watching the teacher's page.
Anastasia is a linguist-teacher by education. At the same time, she herself admits that she learned the correct pronunciation only when she began to repeat the recitative after the rappers.
Anastasia analyzes rap hits in detail, which it would seem impossible to repeat, and explains how to do it. For example, in the HDMI song, as the woman pointed out, the rapper does not pronounce some consonants, which is why there is confusion.
In some videos, Anastasia just raps without leaving any comments for the "students".
It is worth noting that she turns out just gorgeous, for which Anastasia often receives compliments and admiring reviews in the comments.
There were even users who suggested Anastasia to start her own rap career.
But Anastasia, apparently, is not attracted to this idea. A woman successfully combines work with a hobby and enjoys what she does. And at the same time pleases thousands of fans with his creativity. Perhaps someone thanks to her will be able to learn the language!
It is worth saying that this is not the first teacher who managed to conquer TikTok. Earlier we talked about a 69-year-old physics and mathematics teacher from Russia who found an unusual way to attract ticktockers to his subjects.
