Check out our new activities!
FL4K is thrilled to incorporate Spanish music into its new language and culture curriculum. Spanish songs have been woven into our new program to teach and reinforce Spanish vocabulary, language structure, and culture. The songs also provide more robust support as students develop their listening and speaking skills.
FL4K provides teachers and parents with both authentic Spanish music and songs created specifically to teach Spanish to kids.
Traditional Music from the Hispanosphere
Students view age-appropriate, patriotic, and traditional Hispanic music videos with accompanying lyrics and activities to help expand their Spanish vocabulary and understanding of Hispanic culture.
Advancing cultural self-awareness and curiosity
Diverse traditional Hispanic music videos help students reflect on and talk about cultural similarities and differences in the products, perspectives, and practices found in the lyrics or visuals.
Repetition of language occurs naturally in most music forms
Consistently repeating refrains and melodies make learning and remembering Spanish vocabulary effortless for students.
Easy and memorable way to learn Spanish sentence structure
Songs make it simple for students to become familiar with Spanish language constructions and variations. Even without formal instruction, students often use the constructions automatically in conversation.
