Funny way to learn Spanish – when you are obsessed with a song

…and recently I am obsessed with this one:

Larry Hernandez – Carita De Angel

Carita de angel dueña de mi ser
tu carita es dulce como la miel.
Eres sencilla y tan natural
tu mirada es clara como un manantial.
Carita de angel mi linda mujer
despierto y no te veo al amanecer.
Te veo que duermes con tranquilidad
pero eres diferente en la intimidad.

Quien hiba pensar que anoche eras tu
la misma persona que me hacía el amor.
Llenabas mi cuerpo entero de placer,
tu cuerpo era fuego quemando mi piel.
Besabas mi cuerpo en cada rincón,
me decias cosas cositas de amor.

Me hacías el dueño de tu corazón
carita de angel carita de amoor
mi cariitaa de aaangeeeel.

Carita de angel dueña de mi ser
tu carita es dulce como la miel.
Eres sencilla y tan natural
tu mirada es clara como un manantial.
Carita de angel mi linda mujer
despierto y no te veo al amanecer.
Te veo que duermes con tranquilidad
pero eres diferente en la intimidad.

Quien hiba pensar que anoche eras tu
la misma persona que me hacía el amor.
Llenabas mi cuerpo entero de placer,
tu cuerpo era fuego quemando mi piel.
Besabas mi cuerpo en cada rincón,
me decias cosas cositas de amor.

Me hacias el dueño de tu corazón
carita de angel mi angel de amoor,
cariitaa de aaangeeeel.

And I have added a new word to my vocabulary: manantial = source.
But learning from songs has another very important advantage: you learn a lot of popular expressions and idioms without any toil: it just flows to your brain through music. You do not analyse it and therefore you also learn the melody of the language.

I will try to dig out some old songs that I was “obsessed with” in the past and that helped me improve my Spanish a lot. There were quite of them :)

I agree, learning spanish ismuch more fun and easier with the help of some catchy music.

I read it somewhere that music can help us to remember things faster and easier because music functions are controlled in a different section of the brain than speech. That is why learning our alphabet is much more easier to remember if we sing it in the tune of twinkle twinkle little star.

One amazing fact is that some Alzheimer’s patients who can’t remember their name can remember and sing their favorite songs.

I think there is a SPanish version of Sesame Street where you can learn how to count in spanish.
