Using the phrase me duele is an important part of any health unit, which usually consists of exercises intended to help students explain how they’re feeling. I’ve seen a lot of assessments that involve being able to go to a doctor and talk to him about what’s wrong. With that in mind, here are five great songs you can use that have lots of repetitions of forms of doler.
“Me duele tanto” – Servantino & Florentino
“Me duele amarte” – Reik
“Duele el amor” – Aleks Syntek ft. Ana Torroja
“Adiós” – Jesse y Joy
“Aunque duela aceptarlo” – Luis Fonsi ft. Noel Schajris (not as many repetitions as the title would make it seem but still a great song)
For audio of native speakers describing an ailment to a doctor, check out the University of Texas proficiency videos on the topic.
