Anywhere in the world, songs are part of the cultural identity of countries.
They vary in genre, rhythm, era, complexities, they inform us about history, society, rituals, customs, beliefs, in short, they help us gain a better understanding of a culture. Often with catchy beats and easy to learn lyrics – think La Macarena! –, they can offer a lot more than a captivating chorus if you take the time to learn about theirs composers and singers, the social climate they reveal, the vignettes of history they cover, the geography they unveil, etc.
In this course, whether we discuss a traditional Spanish flamenco, a Mexican “corrido”, a Chilean folk song from Violeta Parra, a country’s all-time favorite or a twenty-first century rap song, the goal is to help you practice your Spanish, improve your vocabulary and grammar, and deepen your understanding of cultures of the Spanish speaking world. If you leave class singing in Spanish… well, that’s a bonus but we won’t make you. Promise!
You will be sent weekly material to prepare for your classes.
This class, taught entirely in Spanish, is meant for students with a good command of spoken Spanish. Students are expected to have a good awareness of all tenses including tenses of the subjunctive and conditional moods, and to express themselves with relative ease.
