Singing songs in Spanish

As a Spanish learner, you have to dedicate a fair amount of time to learning idioms because there are just so many of them.  And of course, since there is no formula to build an idiom or predict the structure or the meaning, you are basically stuck memorizing them.  You can make lists and flashcards, and sure, that works, but let me recommend one of my preferred methods: music.

Music is one of the best ways to support, even enhance your language-learning experience.

To open this section we will start with one of my favorite songs. Happy listening!
