Welcome to Traditions for Today! This site is devoted to using songs for learning and practicing the English language. In addition, much culture and history can be learned in an interesting and enjoyable way.

Each song title on the this page will lead you to audio files and lyrics of each song. You may want to download the mp3 version of the song first. Don't worry, these are all legal downloads since the original traditional songs are public domain and I own the copyright of the sound recording and my original songs. Therefore, I give you permission to download!

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or suggestions. Let me know if you find any of this useful. Enjoy, Chuck Phillips cphillip@email.arizona.edu
