Improve your Spanish by listening to songs

One thing that my students tell me that they struggle with, is listening to spoken Spanish. By listening to Spanish songs and by reading the transcripts in Spanish, you will improve your listening skills no end.

The beauty of this web site is that you have the ability to slow down the recording!

Please take a look at this song ‘Vuela, vuela’ by Monchy and Alexandra. They are a bachata musical group from The Dominican Republic. Bachata is a genre of Afro Latin American music that originated in the Dominican Republic in the first half of the 20th century with its primary musical elements being from Angola.

Listening to this song has a lot to offer all abilities of Spanish learner. For the beginner it is good to listen to any Spanish and take note of the pronunciation and try to learn new some words. For those of you who have learnt some of the tenses, you will find quite a few examples of some irregular verbs in the present tense.

So here you are, please have a listen (please find the link below) and let me know what you think! Happy listening.
