I love using authentic music in my classroom! I recently used a Sie7e song called Tengo tu Love. It’s great because it has TONS of words we have learned, and some English too!
Here is the procedure I followed when I used this song:
– Students searched the song for cognates. Words students recognized on their own included: celular, diamantes, conversación, privado, millones, mansiones, diploma, compromiso, silencio.
– I pointed out the phrase “vale más que” and explained what it meant. We used lines 26 and 35 to translate, using this phrase.
– We then listened to the song. Students filled in the blanks. I tried to sing along.
– After our first listen through, students shared words that they heard but not where they were located. Words we filled in included: tengo, tiene, tener, brazos, vieja, siempre, amigo, tiempo, enseñar, hablar, escuchar, soy, hay, español.
– We listened a second time through.
– Then we went over all the blanks. Students had almost EVERY single one filled in! =)
– Students then translated these lines verbally: 1,3,5,11,18,20, 25,29,31,33,41,42,43,45
