#1 Song on the Hot Latin charts, now a useful grammar activity!
Have you been searching for a relevant, fun, real-life way to practice regular and irregular conjugations of the Spanish preterite tense? This song uses them several times!
I used this as an interactive grammar activity + sing along for pronunciation + we dance to the video as I show the link in class.
I am a sociolinguist, a court interpreter/translator, and a professor of Spanish. I am also a native speaker of both Spanish and English, and I L♥VE music!!
I used this amazing hit song by the Colombian superstars Shakira and Maluma, and the class loved it!
**Note: the song lyrics and the YouTube video link are PG-13+: use accordingly**
I am a professional translator, so the translation is mine.
The lyrics are publicly accessed, as is the YouTube lyric video link, but its use for second language acquisition is non-infringing and fair use.
