One of the best ways to learn a language is through music, everyone agrees. Not only do you hear the language spoken by a native speaker, but also, the repetition means that you soon find yourself singing along, even if it's just to the chorus. So, whether you're taking your GCSE's, A-Levels, CEFR Exams, already at university or just starting out with the language, then these are essential listens for your playlist. If you are learning Spanish, then listening to these five bands will give your language skills a great boost.

5.Chikos Del Maiz
Los Chikos del Maiz is a political rap band from Valencia in the South East of Spain and their name is taken from the Stephen King book, The Children of the Corn. They formed in 2005 and are still making hip-hop music which has had wide appeal throughout Spain. Their concerts and music have been criticised by right-wing political groups and the group have also reported receiving death threats from ultra-right organisations. Their lyrics are great for the learner to increase their socio-political vocabulary and be aware of political issues in Spain that may come up in Spanish conversations. Find my exercises on the TES.
