Ageeth de Haan If You’re Happy (And You Know It)

A Sing-along concert featuring favourite English children’s songs

Learning English the fun way!

Ageeth will sing some of the most enjoyable English-language children’s songs, such as Old MacDonald Had a Farm, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Head Shoulders, Knees and Toes. The whole audience is invited to sing along, and children will learn new English words while having fun. The concert is full of sing-alongs, songs to listen to, and fun games with language. Ageeth’s clear and fluent way of speaking English provides an excellent example for children learning the language. Ageeth will be accompanied by Frans Groen on guitar.

This sing-along concert of songs is based on the book and CD titled If You See a Crocodile, featuring 25 favourite English children’s songs sung by Ageeth de Haan. The concert is suitable for theatres, schools, libraries and other locations, both indoors and out.

The earlier, the better!

‘The earlier children start learning English, the better,’ according to many education experts. More and more primary schools have begun taking this advice seriously. Learning English stimulates the development of a feeling for language and raises awareness of other cultures. What could be more fun than learning English through songs?
