Spanish culture – Poem: Gracias a la vida

Today I want to share a beautiful song and poem in Spanish about life, love and being thankful. It can be used in class with intermediate to advanced learners to review or reinforce the perfect tense. It could also be used with beginners looking at the vocabulary in the song which is quite simple and then talking about what students are grateful for.

Here is a useful bundle of activities to do before, during and after the song:

If you have any other ideas on how to use this beautiful song with your students, please share in the comments. Thank you 🙂
