I'm sure many of you've heard about FLUENCY MC, because I often use some of his videos in our classroom.
Anyway, let me tell you that he's an English teacher, but a very creative English one. He raps English grammar and vocabulary lessons, and also goes around the world showing what he does.

- Work with unknown words.
- Discuss about the topic, the poem style and the social impact of it.
- Sing the rap song.
