SONGS IN SPANISH (no lesson)


I'm still pausing on doing lessons and songs in Spanish but I came across this medley by an artist I have not yet shared here so I wanted to at least share the video and a playlist I started to create with (43)songs by her. The beginning song is one of my favorite songs in English that just rises up in my spirit at times so I wanted it in Spanish too!

Doris Machin
Canciones de Adoracion
Songs of Adoration
Un tiempo de intimidad
A time of intimacy
A Solas Contigo
How precious 
to be in
the 
PRESENCE
of
Our 
Lord!

Tu Presencia
O Señor
es preciosa!

SONGS IN SPANISH (PAUSE)

As you may have noticed, I did not post a Spanish Song and series of Lessons yesterday. If you know or read my regular blog; aMazing Grace ... Mazes, Messes, Miracles, 
you may have a better idea of why. I have been following along with the stats here as able and it does not appear that anyone is reading these. I'm sure that many of us, are BUSY with the upcoming months of Thanks Giving, Hannukah, Advent and Christmas. Just final touches for this year of 2012. So for now, SIS (Songs in Spanish) will be on PAUSE!!! EnJOY your holiday season and remember to keep Jesus first!

You can continue with all the songs that I gave in 31 Days, especially the Sundays, when I shared multiple songs on full CDs and concerts, really more than enough.
Just with the series by Maranatha Singers "Quiero Alabarte" and their 7 volumes, there are many songs and beautiful voices that clearly pronounce the words of many songs that you are probable familiar with in English. If I knew all of these in Spanish as I do in English, I know that they would bless me and others here in Mexico. So I'm working on learning them also.

The 104 LESSONS at STUDY SPANISH (Beginning) are also excellent and explained very well. The Grammar Section is not the only one as I mentioned before here.
I highly recommend this program, as if I had written it myself. "Camino de Exito" is the program that they sell but the link to the beginner level is free. By the way, that title means "Way to Success", and I believe that Jesus is the way, ... (John 14:6) one of the first Bible verses I memorized. This also is a good way to train, to memorize key verses in Spanish!

I think I have some playlists for CHRISTmas songs even in Spanish over at my You Tube Channel so I will be featuring them on my Featured Playlists (or come back here and I may link some here as well)! update: I only found one in Spanish and linked it to Spanish but as the season comes, I'll probably add more.

¡FELIZ NAVIDAD
Y
PROSPERO
AÑO NUEVO!

Feliz Día de GRACIAS!

You know what I find so beautiful in Spanish,
God is in the language in so many ways.

For example,
look at the word
"gracias"
easy and well known word
but
the first part of that word
is
"gracia"
which means 
GRACE

You see our thanks is based on 
HIS GRACE
that
is undeserved, unmerited
but given to us
freely
just
by 
receiving 
and
accepting
A grateful heart
can do
so much

keep
saying
"GRACIAS"
and
be
grateful
in all
things
not 
necessarily
for all things

Gracias by Marcos Witt

God's Grace is so aMazing!
so many ways
to show
your
thankfulness
during this
season
Pour out
God's
Grace
and
Gracias
(which would also be the plural of "gracia")
Can grace be graces?

So when you tell someone "gracias", you are extending God's grace to them! Isn't that what HE would want?

SONGS IN SPANISH ~ 2

Back on Day 27 of my 31 Days, I shared the following song and many others by Kari Jobe from her latest CD "Where I Find You"/ "Donde Te Encuentro"

Since I am sharing it in English over at my main blog, aMazing Grace ...
I thought I'd center on that song again over here for our continuation of learning Spanish, because I did not teach anything when I shared it back in "31 Days..." just shared the lyrics in both languages and it's a good song.

If you are doing the lessons at Study Spanish, this past week, I had linked Unit I; Lessons 1-7 ending with Subject Pronouns. I should continue with lessons 8-14 but I'm skipping those and jumping ahead to Unit II. because of the song I've chosen by Kari Jobe. However, if you don't know anything yet about Verbs in Spanish, I'd recommend that you continue on with at least Lesson 8 (or 8, 9 and 10 covering Regular Verbs) first.

The lessons for this week, if you'd like to do one a day should be (the above recommendation of 8, 9,and 10):

8. Reg. Verbs I
9. Reg. Verbs II
10. Reg. Verbs III

Followed with these as your main focus from Unit II:
    15. Ser and Estar I
  1. 16. Ser and Estar II
  2. 17. Ser and Estar III
  3. 18. Ser and Estar IV
Because Kari's song is "AQUI ESTA" (with accent on the "i"and the last "a", I don't have the Spanish Keyboard on, nor am I very good at doing it with Capital letters).

"Está" comes from "Estar" and it is the 3rd person singular form of "to be"

Aquí [pronounced like "a key"] means "Here" which is the complete title in English.

I have chosen to share the one with the lyrics in it HERE


AQUI

//Ven, descansa, 
ya no cargues más dolor
Ven, descansa, 
y refúgiate en Su amor
Encontrarás ya,
No más soledad
Sólo paz, 
cerca está
Encontrarás
que tu corazón roto
Él sanó
Aquí está

*Respira
Exhala
Tú lo encontrarás 
Aquí//

////Descansaré en Tí////

then returns to above * and repeats
***
Respira looks much like the English words 
"respiration or respiratory"
so that is what it means
"BREATHE"
from
respirar (to breathe)
and it is in a command form telling YOU to breathe
Commands are not taught until Unit 8,
although they are not that difficult to learn
and are used frequently in songs.
The following word in the song is a command also
that looks like a word in English 
so I'm sure you can guess what it means
Exhala
[remember not to pronounce the "h" is all]
from the verb
exhalar
to exhale
Tú lo encontrarás 
You(familiar)=
Him = lo
you will find/meet = encontrarás
[future tense from "encontrar"]
AQUI
HERE
[location]
***
"Aquí está" He is here 
is the focus of this lesson
ESTAR = to be 3rd person form is "is"
it can be
He is 
She is
it is
or
you (formal) are
if you use a name for 
"he" like "Jesus"
Jesús está
Jesus is
or for 
"she"
Mary
María está
or a place
establo for stable
el establo está
the stable is
el burro for donkey
el burro está
the donkey is
el burro está en el establo
the donkey is in the stable

estar
when "to be" is used for
health (state)
location (geographic or physical)
temporary condition
and also in 
and
progressive tenses 
(*construction as used below in the Bible verse)
so
ser
is used for all the rest
of "to be"s
like
descriptions
and 
what is listed in 
Mateo 11:28
"Venid á mí todos los que estáis trabajados y cargados, que yo os haré descansar."
Matthew 11:28

STUDY ON
SING ON
and
have fun
SPEAKing

SONGS IN SPANISH ~ 1


In October, I did 31 Days (see page above) to share Christian songs in Spanish to help you as you learn Spanish as I taught some lessons along the way. The lessons were not great nor in order but went along with the song to help.

Somewhere along the way, I think I mentioned continuing with this on Saturdays. At the moment, I am not able to organize teaching Spanish along with a song but I hope to be able to do that soon. In the meantime, I would like to just share SONGS from that series that I shared the first Sunday, "Quiero Alabarte" with volumes of praise and worship songs from Maranatha that we are familiar with like this one:

BUSCA EL REINO
This is the secong song on Vol. 1
Letra y acordes

"Pero busquen primero Su reino y Su justicia, 
y todas estas cosas les serán añadidas." 
Mateo 6:33

Mateo 6:33 VERSADAY has a beautiful devotional and gallery in English and Spanish daily.


QUIERO means "I want" from the verb "querer" (this is what you would find in a dictionary, not "quiero") pronounced KEY-AIR-O.

BUSCA is in command form from "buscar" (verb) which means to look or search for, to seek so the word "search" (noun) would be busqueda - la busqueda(feminine noun)
because it ends in "a". "the" also needs to agree with it in gender and number (singular or plural). Commands are a bit more complicated and a later lesson. 

In Spanish when you conjugate (change) from the infinitive form (that verb form that you find in the dictionary) to include or align with the subject speaking, which then includes the tense and person. Tense (is time; Present, future, past, etc.) and person (1st,2nd, 3rd singular and plural; I, you, he she it - we, you all, they... singular:yo, tu usted, el ella - plural:nosotros, nosotras, vosotros, vosotras, ustedes, ellos, ellas. 

See these LESSONS at Study Spanish. Unit I. first 7 (one for each day this upcoming week, until I share another song. Here's where you start and since this site has done this so well, I highly recommend following through their grammar lessons or any other part: vocabulary, pronunciation, verb drills

Unit One
  1. Gender of Nouns I
  2. Gender of Nouns II
  3. Numbers: 1-10
  4. Plural Forms of Nouns
  5. Def. & Indef. Articles
  6. The Verb Form "hay"
  7. Subject Pronouns
Also under VERB DRILLS- present tense -ar verbs BUSCAR
irregular verb e to ie stem changing QUERER

They have exercises and tests to help you but very clear diagrams and explanations. The best I've seen.
