The most typical yet so far the utmost effective way to acquire Spanish language is to actually let learners learn Spanish at language school. Yes, it is effective because the classroom setting of the school makes the learning absorbable. There is really a huge difference when the learner embraces to a classroom setting. They will really learn.


And no matter how young or old you are a learner, when the kind of Spanish course you will be taking is the basic one, you will really undergo the Spanish language’s basics: from numbers, to common phrases, to simple terms, and subject-verb agreements. You will even be tackling few Spanish literary works to enhance such knowledge. This makes the same learning process when one is learning English, even when one wants to study English abroad. If English will touch the literature and grammar aspects of the language, so does Spanish.


And speaking of literature, poems are good examples of enhancing one’s skills in Spanish learning. Would you like some samples? Here are some I have collected.


The following poems are specifically for body parts with Spanish terms. Very basic, isn’t it? Well, let’s try your comprehensive skills.

Word for Word translation:

Ésta es mi cabeza

Ésta es mi cabeza

como una pelota.

Tengo dos orejas

nariz y una boca.

Con estos dos ojos,

yo puedo mirar

las cosas bonitas

de este lugar.


This is my head

This is my head,

like a ball.

I have two ears,

a nose and a mouth.

With these two eyes,

I can see

the pretty things

of this place.


Los sentidosCon mis ojos veo,

con mis orejas oigo,

con mi boca hablo,

con mi nariz huelo.

¿Y con mis manitas?

Lo toco ¡todo,todo,todo!


My SensesWith my eyes I see,

with my ears I hear,

with my mouth I talk,

with my nose I smell.

And with my hands?

I touch everything, everything, everything.


La caraEn mi cara redondita,

tengo ojos y nariz,

y también tengo una boca

para charlar y reir.

Con los ojos veo todo

y con la nariz hago ¡atchiss!

y con la boca yo como

¡Palomitas de maíz!


My FaceOn my round face,

I have eyes and a nose,

and I also have a mouth

to talk and laugh.

With my eyes I see everything

and with my nose I go achoo!

And with my mouth I eat
