Learning Spanish can be tricky, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to learn while listening. Here’s some songs we’ve stumbled upon throughout our years that either a teacher has shared, or we’ve found on my own.
1. Me Gustas by Manu Chao
We don’t know how we found this one, but it’s fun to listen to and you will for sure remember how to say “I like…” by the end.
2. Aquellos Tiempos by Jorge Drexler
A teacher in college gave us a test around the past tense for this song. Luckily no tests here, but there’s a lot of past tense practice packed into this one. It’s also just really chill.
3. Uno Beso y Una Flor
Aside from catching some super groovy styles, you an also get a good feel for the future tense in this song.
4. Disney Songs
Honestly, who doesn’t like a good Disney Song. It’s catchy and there’s a high possibility you already know all the words in English. Find the Spanish version and you’ll be able to follow along super easily!
5. Los Pollitos
We learned this little song back in middle school and honestly, there’s a lot of phrases caught up in the short minute. We will never forget how to say “I am hungry” or “I am cold” — which is a common state for us.
BONUS: There’s an app called Lirica that breaks down popular Spanish songs into manageable pieces so you can learn about the song itself, important vocabulary, and grammar structures.
While we don’t have songs in our app, LangLandia keeps Spanish learning fun with world exploration, beasts, and daily competitions with other Spanish learners.
