For your student’s, understanding subjunctive is one of the most challenging aspects of learning Spanish. One of the reasons the subjunctive mood is so difficult for English speakers is because it is so rarely used. Songs in Spanish are a fantastic way for them to practice and understand it 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!
