¡Feliz martes a todos! Have you heard of Maná? They are a Mexican pop rock group formed in 1986, whose name comes from the Polynesian term for supernatural energy! They have won 4 Grammy Awards and are extremely popular throughout Latin America and further afield. This week’s Tune for Tuesday is their song En el muelle de San Blás. We really like this song and it’s a good test for your Spanish comprehension. Don’t worry if you struggle to follow the lyrics, we recommend finding them online and reading through them while listening to the song.
The lyrics contain many examples of the preterite tense, but also some others. Can you identify any of the other tenses used? Feel free to share some of the examples you’ve found in the comments!
