Canciones para aprender español: Guantanamera

Guantanamera is a classic of cuban folklore. There are many versions out there but in this case we want to utilize Playing for Change version because their version will allow us to talk about Multiculturalism in class.
This is a good opportunity to bring in the IB Profile, especially, open-minded and work with your students relevant concepts such as Internationalism, International mindedness, etc
Try to inspire your students to sing the songs, singing in class has been proven beneficial in so many ways. 
First thing is listening to the song, for the first time is recommendable just to listen to it, enjoy the music, the melody, the rhythm. In a second round students can take general notes on how many verses, try to write down the chorus, you can distribute the lyrics of the song with blanks to fill in, etc
After listening comes the comprehension part, try to present comprehensible input to your students, draw words in the board, give them examples, use the word in a sentence, use synonyms, opposites, etc.
After all this work you are ready to do the activities below:

  1. Hola:
    Muchísimas gracias por este material. Muy útil. Solo quería mencionar que hay un error en la pregunta número 10 del quiz. La palabra "cantamos" es tanto presente como indefinido.
