Tuesday Teaching: Musical Subjunctive

My Spanish 3 class is deep in the throes of learning the subjunctive, that wonderful tense in Spanish that you use whenever the resulting action may or may not occur. It is not the easiest tense in the world for English-speakers to learn because English doesn’t really use it. To spice it up, I usually play my favorite subjunctive-featuring song: Juan Luis Guerra’s “Ojalá que llueva café.”

Turns out, someone else got there ahead of me and did a great job of creating a complete lesson around this song. Check out Barbara Kuczun Nelson’s wonderful site. She has much more on it than just this one song! A great resource.
