How can we give our pupils earworms to ensure that the Spanish they learn will be remembered forever?

Do you ever wonder how your pupils can remember the entire lyrics to a song, yet they have an incredibly difficult time remembering the alphabet, times tables, or anything else for that matter? Well the reason for this is that listening to music gives them earworms!

Earworms is the term scientists use to describe, quite simply, when a song gets stuck in our head. Along with other terms including stuck-song syndrome, sticky music, and cognitive itch.

For this reason we are giving away two Spanish songs from our new resource: ¡Me Gusta Cantar! – so that you can give your pupils earworms of the Spanish variety to ensure that the Spanish they learn will be remembered forever.

Click here for free “¿Cómo te llamas?” lyrics sung to the tune of “If you’re happy and you know it” Click here for free “Los días de la semana” lyrics sung to the tune of “Camptown races”

If after using these free resources with your pupils you are satisfied with the results and are still humming the song, you can buy the full volume for just £32.89 at And if you have any questions, please email
