After many many requests by my students I caved and used Despacito as a teaching resource - but not before rewriting the lyrics to make them 1) GCSE appropriate 2) highly respectful to women (but much less respectful to the reggaeton genre). This is a resource for an engaging listening lesson. There is a link to a Quizlet on key vocab for the song, a worksheet with the lyrics and a variety of micro-listening exercises working on fine-listening skills (detecting minor errors + single letter/whole word gap fills). Last paragraph also contains errors in the actual song! Finally, there is also a TeachVid resource linked in the document too, to use as a follow up to the listening activity.
There is also a link, inside the resource to me performing the song (I did my best, be kind! - but also I don’t mind, so long as students find it engaging and progress in their Spanish)
It's good to leave some feedback.

This is AMAZING! So much effort has gone into these resources. Mil gracias!
Yes! Well done!!
GRACIAS! At last, I can teach this song, they always ask for it and I simply could not use it. Great adapted version, I love the use of hobbies :)
Muchas gracias, fantastic resource!
Brilliant. Those original lyrics are not suitable! So now you've got "let's read a book" which is much more useful anyway. Thank you!
