The past perfect tense, also known as pretérito pluscuamperfecto in Spanish, describes a sequence of events that happened in the past. Since it is used to describe an event that precedes another, it is one of those tenses that will prove difficult for your students.
But incorporating songs in Spanish will offer them the opportunity to practice and understand it in context and in a fun way.
Below is a suggested list of contemporary songs in Spanish to try in class with your students.
We have created a clozeline (fill-in-the-blanks) for each of them in 2 or 3 versions to choose from according to your students’ listening comprehension level. Each cloze is also digitally fillable!
