There’s another song that’s great for so many reasons–by far one of my students’ favorites: La llave de mi corazón by Juan Luis Guerra. His music and lyrics are positive and upbeat and the codeswitching (mixing languages) fascinates my students, who often enter my class thinking bilingualism is weird and there aren’t any cool people who speak two languages. (Side note, the song’s also been recorded in Portuguese.)
I blogged about La llave de mi corazón last year in this post but not specifically for subjunctive. It’s by reason of influence after a subject change and there are several good examples. Enjoy–it’s a great tune!
