Exercises Level 3: Christmas Carols

  Ya vienen los Reyes Magos - Christmas Carols



  Comment about this song

Also in this song there are song logical problems, because the Three Magi are on their way to Holland, not to Bethlehem. There is a blog on the net, where a cat describes what its owner is doing.

(quite fun to read and a good training for your Spanish!)

However, it is true for this song as well as for the others - it's nice.
