If you’re a Spanish teacher, and you haven’t heard of Soy yo!, well here it is! Bomba Estéreo, a Colombian electro-cumbia group, recently released the video to their 2015 hit, and the video has gone viral. It is being hailed as an empowerment song with an anti-bullying theme.
It’s perfect for any level and invites a wealth of activities from the Soy yo poems that many of us like to do in our classrooms to in-depth discussions about individually and being brave enough to be ourselves.
