Present Tense Irregular verbs like Dar, Ser, and Ir can be hard for students to master, but with these song activities, your students will learn them in a context that will help them remember them for a long time.
These activities go along with the song "Complemento" by Los Aterciopelados, a Grammy nominated Colombian alternative rock group. This song is readily available on YouTube and iTunes and a link to the song is referenced.
Students are asked to listen to the song several times and fill in the lyrics that have been removed. Then, students are given an overview of the verbs dar, ir, and ser, including their meanings and present tense conjugation. Students then are asked to find and copy certain verses of the song. Students then use their new understanding of these three verbs to manipulate the meanings of those verses. Finally, students are asked to complete a writing activity that deals with the theme of their "complemento" and what that person is like (ser), where they go (ir), and what they give (dar).
