!Vamos a Cantar! contains 20 catchy, easy-to-learn Spanish songs to help primary school and KS3 children learn Spanish, improve fluency and develop good intonation and pronunciation.

Music and songs are an ideal way to teach Spanish to pupils in Key Stages 2 and 3. They are a natural and stress-free way to learn the rhythm of the language, attune pupils to correct intonation and pronunciation, as well as embed complex structures such as questions and answers.

The specially composed songs are sung by native Spanish children on the CD, so you don't need to worry about your own singing ability. They include lots of repetition, simple musical phrases and lots of opportunity for adaptation. You will find that pupils will want to join in – not just with singing, but also clapping, beating rhythms, dancing and making gestures. Once pupils are familiar with the songs, the instrumental tracks will allow them create their own versions.

The songs introduce and reinforce key vocabulary for popular primary school topics, such as:

  • Greetings
  • Names and ages
  • Time and days of the week
  • Family and pets
  • Food and drink
  • Classroom items and instructions
  • Weather, months and seasons
  • Countries where Spanish is spoken

The accompanying book contains attractively illustrated lyric sheets, music for all the songs, English translations and helpful teacher's notes to enable you to make the most of the songs.

However you choose to use the songs, you can be sure that your pupils be enjoying learning Spanish. So ¡Vamos a Cantar! And have a good time!
