Until very recently, I was unfamiliar with the Mexican pop group Río Roma. Now that I found them, I know what group I will be looking up a lot. I also know what the next addition will be to my Ipod: “Mi Persona Favorita”.
Here’s why this song is great:
- Video + lyrics: This video includes the lyrics as well as graphics provided as clues to the meaning of the lines.
- Basic: The vocabulary is basic enough for a Spanish 1 student, but can be useful for advanced levels, because there are examples of preterite and future tenses.
- Discussion: This will be a nice song to use to encourage a class discussion. I plan on asking my class “¿Quién es tu persona favorita?”. You could also even make this a small project where they create a collage or discuss with their classmates.
