"Me Interesas" & Present Tense Review
These activities go along with the song "Me Interesas" by Noel Torres which is readily available on YouTube and iTunes.

In this lesson, students are introduced to Noel Torres, a rising star in the world of Mexican norteño music. They will learn some basic characteristics of that style of music as they discuss the impact that where you live has on the type of music that you listen to.

Students will then listen to the song "Me Interesas" and fill in blanks to complete the missing lyrics. Afterwards, students will find lines of the song and match them with their English equivalents. Finally, students will use their knowledge of the present tense and common vocabulary to manipulate the lines of the song to mean something slightly different.

These activities merge culture, grammar, and vocabulary concepts and are most suitable for second semester Spanish 1 or Spanish 2 students. These activities would also work for a quick review of the present tense beyond this level.
