For my song recommendations, Google the lyrics and listen 3 or 4 times until you can sing along. My playlist =>
For my video series recommendations, try watching each episode multiple times until you start to know what the characters are going to say before they say it.
For my YouTube recommendations, turn on the subtitles and change them to Spanish in the settings.

If you've completed Unidad 20 and you've been studying the lyrics of most, if not all, of my unit-by-unit song recommendations, I applaud you.
