Lyric videos are fun for learning new languages
Apart from many small habits I've picked up over the last few months as I started to learn Spanish, getting introduced myself to Spanish songs is one significant move. These songs are like in a big world outside my realm and soon I became fond of them, especially the ones from Marc Anthony and Enrique Iglesias. Recently, I have seen a lyric video of the song 'Bailando' which basically is like the flow of words with animated background that is like the description of the word. This is the perfect case for beginners like me. So, I'd like to suggest it here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkBMWBI6KQs
Oh thats cool, thanks for the share. I'm not Native English speaker, I can try English songs too :D
That's exactly how I feel :") I am with you 100% ^_^ In my opinion, Enrique Iglesias has some of the best songs (English and Spanish).
Same feeling as I, yes listen the music and learn the lyric is the good way to learn a new langurage
For me, it's mariachi. I love mariachi music... Vicente Fernandez, Jose Alfredo Jiminez, Antonio Aguilar, Lucero, Ana Gabriel are just a few of the artists I like. Since I started Duolingo, I can even pick up a word or phrase every now and then when I listen.
I also stumbled upon La Hija del Mariachi. Great music.
I recently watched Que Bonito Amor, the Mexican remake of Hija. I can’t really recommend QBA for the acting or plot, and even the casting was pretty questionable, but the music was so much fun. It made me a mariachi fan, for sure. I understand that Hija was a much better telenovela, but I haven't seen it.
If you want to see all of QBA with Spanish subtitles, you can find it on hulu plus, which is only about $9 a month. I’d love to see Hija, but I’d want to see the whole thing and I don’t know anywhere that it is available with or without the subtitles, which I really need. (*Hija is a Colombian production and they tend to be a lot harder to find in the US than the Mexican ones). Youtube would have parts of both of these shows, but probably no subtitles or goofy ones that don’t do much good, lol.
There may be the first few episodes of QBA on the free version of hulu, as well as other telenovelas.
Here’s a few samples from QBA:

Thanks Zuquita, that was really great! Vicente is one of my favorites. But in Hija, they have Carolina Rameriz. Ella es muy guapa!!! Try and search for La Hija del Mariachi in YouTube. You may find several links. Muchas Gracias!
Glad that you liked it. I have seen a few bits of HIja and it does look good. I'd love to be able to watch the whole thing and some other Colombian novelas that I've heard of, but I don't know any way that I can do that, unfortunately.
let me tell you that "bailando" has some Portuguese, so don't learn the wrong language thinking you're learning spanish lol
Another great way to see lyrics for many songs is on Spotify. There is a plug-in for Spotify called TuneWiki that has tons of user-submitted lyrics that (mostly) scroll with the music.
I absolutely love this song and have been bumping it lately. Thanks for the tip!
