#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 the present subjuctive? This song uses it many times!
I use this as an interactive grammar activity + sing along for pronunciation + we dance to the video as I show the YouTube link in class.
I am a sociolinguist, court interpreter/translator, and professor of Spanish, and I L♥VE music! I am also a native speaker of both Spanish and English!
I used this amazing song by the Colombian superstar, Shakira, and huge Puerto Rican star Nicky Jam to put the grammar in context.
**Note: the song lyrics and YouTube video link are PG-13+ content: use accordingly**
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.
