The very first song that I learned in English was “Jingle Bells.” I am pretty sure my pronunciation was wrong, but learning the equivalent song of “Navidad, Navidad, Dulce Navidad” gave me the confidence to keep learning English and helped me to easily connect to a different culture than mine.
This is why I love introducing to my children the Christmas songs (villancicos) that I grew up with. These beautiful songs serve as a powerful resource to teach heritage and language. We have great Christmas songs in Spanish to celebrate this beautiful time of the year. Below I have compiled some of the most popular villancicos in Latin America. Enjoy!
