47 Adv Inter Don’t translate songs to Spanish!

In this lesson we show you why we don’t translate songs to Spanish. Thanks to a fun suggestion from Andrew Smart, we try to squeeze into two famous songs, the Spanish lyrics that neither ryhme nor flow.

Come and join us and have some fun while you listen to us laugh our way through the lesson as we translate songs to Spanish.
