Present and Past Subjunctive may be tricky for your students to grasp. Songs are a great way for them to practice and understand both uses in context.
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!
