Kids love cartoons and music, so why not mix them to create a powerful teaching tool?

¡Hola amigos y amigas!

Welcome to the musical world of...

My name is César Alvarez. I am from Spain and I have been living and  teaching Spanish in the San Francisco Bay area for the past 6 years. I started teaching foreign languages 11 years ago when I taught English in Madrid.

I've had difficulty finding good teaching resources so I used my passion for music to write my own songs to teach Spanish. My students love them and they learn a lot of vocabulary and grammar in a fun and easy way.

Music is one of the best ways to learn a foreign language. All of my songs are written from a teacher's point of view and there is a lot of thought behind every single song. Last year I recorded a CD with 13 fun and catchy songs. Each song covers useful and meaningful vocabulary that all Spanish students need to learn.

Children love cartoons and music, so why not mix them to create a powerful teaching tool? That's why I contacted Daniel Fernandez, a good friend of mine and the owner of a professional animation studio, to make a DVD with 13 animated music videos. That is how LALALINGO was born. Take a look at our blog  to watch the videos and listen to the songs!

We are also on facebook! check out our page,

We  have already turned 5 of the songs on the CD into animated musical videos, but animation is not cheap, and we are at a point where we need your support to complete this exciting project.

We will update our blog with new videos as soon as we complete them, so you will be able to see the progress of the project in real time! Every few weeks there will be a brand new video and other useful material to learn Spanish, so stay tuned!

I believe learning a foreign language is a very important part of a child's education. This DVD is definitely a fun way to learn really useful Spanish. If you want to support this project, choose the level, listed to the right, at which you would like to support. Another great way to help us out is to spread the word, so feel free to share this link with friends and family members that might be interested in the project.

Thank you for your time and enjoy the music!

All the best

César & Dani

If we reach our goal we will be able to complete the project by September. Perfect to start the school year singing some fun tunes!

We are also working on a website where we will have tons of fun and very artistic material to reinforce and amplify everything learned on the DVD so keep checking our blog for updates!

We are pretty sure we will be able to have everything ready after summer. However, animation takes time so we might need a couple extra weeks in September to be totally done.
