Spanish through Music
- A Laptop to listen to the tunes, play the music on. A notebook to jot things down in.
I find Spanish to be a super musical language, a bit like Portuguese. There are PLENTY of countries that speak it too. So what better way to go about it than by taking a little musical tour of some salsa, rumba, boogaloo...!
Muchas gracias, I hope you enjoy the course!
Who this course is for:
- Beginner Spanish students wanting to boost their vocabulary and learn about a bunch of different artists from several Spanish-speaking countries.
