Learn Spanish preterit and imperfect verb forms with this fun song. This listing includes a 4 page word document (that you can edit!) with the lyrics for the song "Romeo y Julieta" by the Spanish group Jarabe de Palo. It has simple lyrics and repetitive use of both preterit and imperfect Spanish verbs, and also interesting themes about relationships. I recommend it for your more mature classes (I've used it with both levels 2 and 3 successfully!).
One page of the document includes the complete Spanish lyrics, with an English translation as well. The second page contains a list of Spanish verbs from the lyrics, and asks students to identify whether the verbs are preterit or imperfect, and to justify why they are that tense.
A third page includes the youtube link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpqLz-wWOM0) where you can play the song, as well as 3 analysis questions for after the song. The last page is an outline of a suggested lesson plan (45 min long) and differentiation options.
