I love Neruda’s poems and in level 3 and 4 they are great authentic reading that doesn’t frustrate the kids! I found this video a couple of years ago on youtube and in the description it said that it was made using an audio recording that Neruda made of himself reading some of his poems. So I say to you that it is Neruda reading his own poem but the good people of youtube could have made that story up. 🙂 In the file with it are a power point about Neruda, a sheet with the word to the poem and cloze activities for Spanish 1 or Spanish 2+. Enjoy!!
