Así me gusta a mí: a NEW Calico Spanish song

Could you use a new music resource to help your early learners use me gusta?  What about descriptions and activities?

Así me gusta a mí song from Calico Spanish
How about a brand new Calico Spanish song?

Wait. Just a minute.

You mean, like the songs that are among the most popular children’s Spanish learning songs on YouTube?  The ones with millions and millions of views?  There’s a new one?

Yes.  And it’s all about me gusta, describing something, and talking about activities with the “yo” forms of verbs.

We’re grateful for the incredible talent of Obed Gaytán for this song “Así me gusta a mí.”  It’s an update on a 100-year-old folk tune, and it features a boy telling you about his buena, buena vida:

  • In it, he uses the yo forms vivo, juego, comohablo, and canto.
  • He also uses the describing words buena, roja, bonita, divertido, caliente, rica, grande, and linda.

Ready to check it out?

Cue the TV infomercial voice: Wait, there’s more.

We’ll be releasing a total of six new music videos over the next couple of months featuring all-new music from Calico Spanish.  They feature catchy tunes and repetitive, fun language including themes of rooms in the house, daily activities, telling time, using prepositions of place, and that topic that has seemed to elude all of us in quality children’s songs: weather and seasons.  One of the songs will even help you integrate a super fun, culturally authentic game in the classroom.

We’re beyond excited to be able to release some new music at last.  We hope our music continues to fill your learners’ journey with more smiles and more Spanish.  See you soon with a new song!

The song “Así me gusta a mí” was developed to support the innovative Calico Spanish Stories Online curriculum in Level C, “I Live Here.”  For a full resource guide, contact us at [email protected]
