"Qué Tengo Para Ofrecerte" & Spanish Helping Verbs
These activities are meant to help students learn and practice Spanish sentences that have double verbs. They will observe the grammatical rules and structure that apply to such sentences and learn some verbs that commonly serve as helping verbs (also called auxiliary or modal verbs) in Spanish.

These activities go along with the song "Que Tengo Para Ofrecerte" by Radial, a Puerto Rican indie rock group that has recently migrated to Los Angeles. This song is readily available on YouTube and iTunes and a link to the song is referenced. Also referenced is the bands official website for students who would like to learn more.

Students are asked to listen to the song several times and fill in the lyrics that have been removed. Then, students are given an overview of the concept of double verb sentences and helping verbs. Students then are asked to find and copy certain verses of the song. Students then use their new understanding of this grammatical structure to manipulate the meanings of those verses.
