With my Spanish I students for the last two years I have taught Gente de Zona’s catchy song, “Traidora”. Riding on the success of Gente de Zona’s “Bailando” with my Spanish I students, this collaboration with Marc Anthony was a huge hit.
This tune is from the genre dembow, which is reggeton with a Cuban flare. Although the lyrics to some reggeton songs can be daunting to teach to Spanish I students, the pace, subject matter and genre of this anti-love song are language classroom appropriate and quite refreshing, especially to students who are tired of listening love songs!
If you’d like to teach the tune “Traidora” by Gente de Zona, please follow this link to my song warm-up resource: click here.
Afterwards, consider giving the interactive exam, which can be found at this link:
The impressive music video to the tune can be found at the following link:

Enjoy! And happy teaching!!
