In this lyrics activity, students must match the Spanish lyric with its meaning in English. They should try to match lines based on words that they DO understand, even though they won't understand everything. This file also contains a page of comprehension questions about the song that should be answered after the matching is reviewed (and students understand the meaning of the song in English). The questions are in Spanish and can be responded to in writing or discussed as a class. My classes used this activity while reading the novel Esperanza by Carol Gaab, to compare and contrast the phone call from this song with the phone calls received by the narrator in the first few chapters of the novel.
