Spanish Listening Challenge – Maná & Shakira “Mi Verdad”

LISTENING CHALLENGE!

 

We are back with another Spanish listening challenge for you.  For this challenge, you will listen to a song in Spanish and fill in blanks that you see while you watch the video.  You will also try to see if you can beat my score that I got as well.

This is a great way to improve your listening skills in Spanish.  It is also a fun way to practice and you can learn some new songs and vocabulary.

For our Spanish listening challenge, we will use a great site called lyricstraining.com. To get the most out of this listening challenge follow the steps below before you head over to lyrics training.

About

If you needed a break from the fast songs we have another slow song for you.  This song comes to us from two countries Spain and Colombia.  The song is “Mi Verdad” and it is by Maná & Shakira.  I thought the song was pretty easy to understand and figure out.  I really enjoy this song a lot and it is a good one to practice singing in your car.    I played this song at the beginner level and my best score, for now, is 354.

If you have been enjoying these listening challenges and want to take it to the next level.  Try reading the lyrics aloud and record yourself.  Then play it back and listening to your pronunciation.  Maria is always telling people that listening to yourself is a great way to improve your pronunciation.

First

Before you try to beat my score just watch the video.

Play the video while you follow along with the lyrics below.

Lyrics:

Hay mentiras en los labios
Hay mentiras en la piel, que dolor
Hay mentiras, hay amantes
Que por instantes de placer
Ponen su vida a temblar

Hay mentiras compasivas
Hay mentiras por piedad
Que no quieren lastimar
Hay mentiras que nos hieren de verdad
Ay, ay, ay

Hay engaños que por años
Ocultaron la verdad
Haciendo mucho daño
Ay, yo me voy a refugiar
A la tierra de tu amor (mi verdad)

Tú eres mi amor, mi alegría
La verdad de mi vida
Mi bebe que me salta a los brazos de prisa
Tú eres mi refugio y mi verdad

Oye, tú eres mi amor, mi alegría
La verdad de mi vida
Mi bebe que me calma el alma con risas
Tú eres mi refugio y mi verdad

Hay mentira en la mirada
Hay mentiras en la piel, dibujadas
Hay mentiras, hay amantes
Que por instantes de placer
Ponen su vida a temblar

Hay doctrinas y oradores
Dictadores sin piedad
Que gobiernan sin verdad
Y hay mentiras en los diarios, en las redes
Y en el mar, ay ay ay

Hay engaños que por años
Ocultaron la verdad
Hiriendo de dolor
Ay, yo me voy a refugiar
Al oasis de tu amor

Tú eres mi amor, mi alegría
La verdad de mi vida
Mi bebe que me salta a los brazos de prisa
Tú eres mi refugio y mi verdad

Oye, tú eres mi amor, mi alegría
La verdad de mi vida
Mi bebe que me calma el alma con risas
Tú eres mi refugio y mi verdad

En un mundo tan irreal
No sé qué creer
Y amor sé que tú eres mi verdad, eres mi verdad
Tú eres la luz que me guía
Tú eres la voz que me calma
Tú eres la lluvia de mi alma
Y eres toda mi verdad
Tú eres la luz de mi vida
Tú eres la voz que me calma
Tú eres la lluvia de mi alma
Y eres toda mi verdad
Eres toda mi verdad
