Another Brick in the Wall

Listen to the song 'Another Brick in the Wall' by the English rock group Pink Floyd and complete the words missing in the lyrics below while listening. It really is quite amazing how something as everyday as listening to song lyrics can improve overall listening comprehension skills. If you're feeling particularly clever you could try and guess the missing words from their context before you listen!

Poems, everybody
The laddie reckons himself a poet


Teachers leave them kids alone


Hey! Teacher! Leave us kids alone!


All in all you're just another brick in the wall

We don't need no education
No dark sarcasm in the classroom


An acre is the area of a   ...
