Me gusta la música: Learning Spanish with music!

Hi, Hola, Marhaban! Welcome to my language zone. Today I can officially invite you to its Spanish sector, which you will hopefully like. As a passionate learner, I love looking for interesting materials and tools, which make learning even more amazing, and I would love to share my findings with you! As I’m a total beginner, my series is mainly aimed at people, who want to learn Spanish or have just started, and are still beginners. Of course, it will change, as I will progress, but now… I’m starting from the scratch! Posts from my Spanish zone should appear every week, and if I’m extremely busy – every two weeks. I’ll do my best to be consistent. Anyway, let’s get started — no better way to get ahead!

Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages out there, and it’s surely very interesting. I’ve become interested in Spanish, when I became a huge Shakira fan. She’s absolutely amazing, and I wanted to understand what she’s singing about. It took me long before I actually started, though. I didn’t really know  how to do it, but I believe I do now, and you can read my post about getting started here. Anyway, I made so many mistakes, but I got right one thing: music! As they say:

Yes, you got it right: music connects people! It also helps you become more motivated to learn a foreign language, and makes a connection between the language and you! Plus, even if you don’t notice, you are starting to get used to the language, its tone, and pronunciation just by listening to it. You might not understand a single word, but your brain still listens and learns, and it’s a great preparation for an actual learning process! That’s why I’ll share with you some of my favorite songs in Spanish, most of them with English subtitles. Here we go!

1. Shakira – La Tortura 

I love Shakira so much, plus… this song is pure magic!

2. Pablo Alborán – Solamente tú

Such a sweet song to listen to!

3.  Selena Quintanilla-Pérez  – Como La Flor

Who doesn’t love Selena Quintanilla- Pérez? Selena, the world will always remember you.

4. Eiza – Te Acordarás De Mi

You can find its translation here. It’s so catchy, isn’t it?

5. Natalia Oreiro – Cambio Dolor

You can find its translation here. I feel old, when I listen to this song, as it’s from a soap opera, which was extremely popular in Poland, when I was 7 or so!

There are many other songs I adore, and I will share them with you in my future posts. If you have any songs to recommend me, I would love to see your comments! I’m always open for new music, especially in Spanish!

One more thing: I’ll also start my series about Arabic language, which I will be studying at the university this fall. That’s not everything what I have in store for you in the language zone – I know some of you don’t speak English as your first language, and neither do I, so I’ll share with you some tips from my own journey to total fluency. Last, but not least info I have for you – those who are willing to learn my mother tongue – Polish are warmly welcomed too, as I would be honored to help you master my lovely language. Thanks for sticking with me, you’re absolutely amazing! To make sure you’ll always stay tuned, you can like my Facebook Page.

What’s your favorite song in Spanish? Would you like to take Spanish up? Please let me know in comments! I would also be honored if you could share this post with anyone, who wants to give Spanish a go!

Have a lovely day,
Jessie

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this! I started learning Spanish a while back, but I don’t really have time to get super serious about it. I’ll try to learn more with these songs 🙂

    1. I can relate, time can be a problem. I think it would be a good idea to make a learning plan based on how much time you’re able and willing to spend learning, and then try to stick to it. 🙂 Have fun with songs, I think it’s so fun, and doesn’t feel like learning, but still helps. Thanks for your comment!

  2. As a native Spanish speaker, I totally support your effort to learn it! 😀 I agree music is a great learning tool, and I have used it a lot with my English students. It’s specially helpful to learn pronunciation. I have two favorite songs in Spanish- “Eres” by Café Tacuba and “A Dios Le Pido” by Juanes. Awesome music! I’m looking forward to your posts on arabic.
