Jugando en español – #DevonMFL

Last night was #DevonMFL Teachmeet. Despite being given warning, life took over and my contribution didn’t arrive in time for the night. However, rather than waste it, I decided to share it here! So, here is my hastily – but not hastily enough – prepared short presentation on using games to learn Spanish in and […]

Kickstart Lalalingo

I’ve blogged about César previously and linked to his Soundcloud – previously Cesar a Chinchila and now renamed Lalalingo. César emailed me recently to say that he was trying to ‘kickstart’ a new project with his songs that involves animating the songs and making a DVD, and I’m doing my bit to spread the word. If […]

Me gusta la música / A veces toco un instrumento – more Storybirds!

I’m having a bit of a Storybird ‘splurge’ at the moment. It’s my chosen form of relaxation this week! So here are two I’ve just written with the QCA Unit Yo soy músico in mind (see here for a previous post on this unit and here for a fun activity we did using Twitter!). Two […]

Feliz Navidad with a difference.

This clip combines two of my favourite things  – Spanish and iOS devices. Made completely on iOS devices like iPhones, iPods and iPhones, here is NorthPoint Community Church wishing you a Merry Christmas.  Funky and fun! And here’s more Christmas music from the same place if you enjoyed that.

Suerte

Thanks to the above tweet I’ve found this song that won’t stay out of my head. A lovely summer feel good song. Hope you enjoy it too! [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyVa5DYl4yE&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x3a3a3a&color2=0x999999]

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgmu3PtJVNY&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x402061&color2=0x9461ca&border=1] With all sorts of bugs doing the rounds at the moment, here’s another little gem that is a)fun b)free c)useful and topical. El Barrio Sésamo in Mexico has made this little video to encourage children to wash their hands and advises them to sing part of the song ‘Pin Pon’ to help them […]

Michael Jackson canta en español.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9EZ25NIjJA&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x3a3a3a&color2=0x999999&border=1] On the day of his funeral, here’s Michael Jackson singing in Spanish. For a 2001 special edition of his “Bad” album, Jackson recorded “Todo mi amor eres tú,” a translated version of his hit “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.” He performed it as a duet with Siedah Garrett. (Thanks to About.com for […]

¡Tanto tiempo sin verte!

Can’t believe I haven’t blogged for nearly a fortnight! Blame reports, three presentations and a morning of preliminary meetings / observation with TeachersTV in one week, and a short break in Spain! There will be more posts soon, but to keep you going, here’s another of the reasons I’ve not being blogging recently. Enjoy!
