Exercises Level 3: Christmas Carols

  Ande, ande, ande la Marimorena - Christmas Carols



  Comment about the song

As we know from all kind - also modern - songs, they are not necessarily logical. Also the Spanish Christmas carols are not really always logical. There are comments on the net to be found, e.g. here.

However, main thing is what we can learn from the songs about Spanish Christmas, about the language and that they are actually really nice.
