  3. You can now search a particular song if you click on “Buscar”. If you don’t have any specific song in mind, you can click on “Géneros” to see the available songs for each category. In my case, I am going to click on “Indie”, which should content songs in Spanish of independent bands.Spanish songs lyrics learn

Double consonants in Spanish

Unlike other languages, in Spanish only 4 consonants can appear doubled up: C, R, L, N. You can remember it using the word “CaRoLiNa“.

Examples:

  • With CC: elección, dirección, acción, protección, diccionario.
  • With RR: perro, carretera, correo, barrio.
  • With LL: llave, silla, collar, amarillo.
  • With NN: connotación, perenne.

Other words like pizza or puzzle don’t attend this rule because they are loan words.

I will take advantage of this post to share with you a very famous Spanish song: CAROLINA. Band: M Clan (from Madrid, Spain). I am not a fan of this band but I think it could help you to remember about the use of double consonants in Spanish. Have fun!
