Despacito - I don't understand but it sounds amazing!!!

"Despacito" hit the world with a bang, being tied for the longest running #1 song on the Billboard chart.

We all probably heard the song on the radio, and its alluring and addictive tone captured the hearts of many.

It caught me to the point where I would sing along to it wherever I was, whether in the shower or in my car.

Although Justin Bieber translated the song into English lyrics, the original singer, Luis Fonsi, has his own original lyrics and the song is entirely in Spanish!

Even when listening to the Spanish version, the song is still catchy and is a total bop for music lovers.

This is the power of not only music, but language. The Spanish language itself is romantic and beautiful, which is why even if we don't understand the language, it is still engraved in our ears.

If this song doesn't give you the urge to learn Spanish, then we don't know what else will!

At the Atlanta Institute of Language, we work with our native-speaking staff to make sure they use a robust combination of teaching techniques. If you're ready to get started, please contact AIL at (404) 444-1532 or
