Despacito

Despacito by Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee was one of the hot hits of 2017 and the first Youtube video to get more than 4 billion views! Both artists are from Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States whose official languages are both English and Spanish but with Spanish as the dominant language. The steamy lyrics are a great way to practise your Spanish: we've transcribed the song for you and put it into Kwiziq's amazing 'bilingual reader' tool below.

Hola Nicole

We tagged the wrong lesson in that bit of text. It shouldn't be tagging the lesson about the present subjunctive of -zar verbs, as the verb is in the indicative. This is the right lesson to go to: 

Semi-regular verbs with change -e to -ie in El Presente

We'll re-tag the right lesson as soon as possible.

I imagine this was your doubt? 

Saludos

Hello Inma,

Yes, you hit it on the nail, thank you!

Sorry, for some reason I didn't include the question I had, which was:

Hello,

I was wondering why a lesson on the "subjunctive" would be referred to here.

This is/could be confusing to a learner, and make one believe that this verb is in the subjunctive when it is not.

Thank you
