¡Me Gusta Cantar! is great for Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Spanish lessons!
Singing songs is a fun way of helping children to develop an enthusiasm for Spanish. The 20 songs in ¡Me Gusta Cantar! are set to familiar tunes, such as Camptown Races, Three Blind Mice & Frère Jacques etc., so that you and the children can concentrate on the words, without having to learn new tunes.
The songs introduce and reinforce vocabulary for greetings, days, family, clothes, food, numbers and many more frequently taught topics.
