The purpose of this project is to discuss different ways for teachers to use songs in language class, specifically in Spanish classes. The paper contains three sections for beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels.

At the beginning of each of the three sections I have written an introduction stating why the songs are appropriate for that level. Each song also has an introduction consisting of a title page which includes a brief description and comments on why I chose the song. Each song is presented with a breakdown of all the lexical items and grammatical structures found in the song. Following that is a list of suggested ideas to use with the song. Some suggestions are suitable for one particular song while other suggestions are interchangeable and can be used with any piece of music. The table of contents provides readers with a quick overview of the entire paper and the grid provides a brief summary of the syntactical breakdown of each song.
