Spanish Playlists

When it comes to language learning, music is key to add exposure to the target language, introduce new vocabulary, practice pronunciation, and keep children engaged and motivated, among other benefits. Best articles about the power of music to teach a language here.

However, finding appropriate songs in Spanish for your specific needs might be tricky. Not all children's music is helpful when you are just trying to teach them the basics. Children's music in Spanish is not the only genre you need to add exposure to the language through music, especially if you have older children at home or if you are learning Spanish along with them.

Here are some Spanish playlists on Spotify that I have created for you to explore different artists, find your favorite Spanish songs, and hopefully get inspired to create your own playlist on Spotify to spark the Spanish. All songs included are clean songs in Spanish for the whole family, and most promote positive messages. The nursery rhymes in Spanish and songs to introduce basic Spanish vocabulary have been carefully curated to offer you options that are simple, easy, fun and short.  Check out my article about how to choose music for a bilingual child and tips to build your own Playlist.  Click here if you can't see the playlists.
