¡Español! ¡Español! from The Language Factory is a multimedia resource containing over 200 topic related songs and raps for teaching Spanish to children. Alongside the three audio CDs, you will also get a comprehensive full colour e-songbook with Spanish lyrics and English translations, as well as topic related teaching resources and activities that accompany all songs.
By putting everyday language into music, The Language Factory resources are simple and fun to use. Children pick up rhythm, rap & rhyme very easily and so the repetitive nature of the songs and raps help children learn the correct pronunciation and intonation for that language. Being exceptionally teacher friendly, The Language Factory are perfect for use by non-specialist teachers (and parents too!).
