the song "bate chocolate"
What does "bate" mean? pronounced "bah teh"
uno, dos, tres cho unos dos tres co uno dos tres la uno dos tres te
chocolate chocolate bate bate cocolate
bate means stir
batir = to whip, to stir
bate mi chocolate = whip (stir ) my chocolate
Batir = Mover y revolver alguna sustancia para que se condense o trabe, o para que se licue o disuelva.
It's spelled wrong, it is actually batí the í makes the e sound like egg. Batí means to beat.
I've been trying to figure it out too! We've just started learning Spanish verbs today, so I'll answer this as best I can:
Bate, first of all, does NOT mean 'mix' or 'whip': it means 'baseball bat.'
BATIR means the infinitive of 'to beat' as in eggs or wings.
( Anytime there's -ar, -er, -ir on the end of a verb, it's the infinitive: cantar = to dance, leer = to read, reír = to laugh)
So from this knowledge, and since I asked my Spanish teacher if 'bate' really meant 'mix' (she said no), I don't really think the infamous Dora song is exactly correct. Hope this helps!
Oh the memories of watching Dora with my kids and hearing her sing "Bate, Bate, chocolate, mix the chocolate (english word pronounced on this chocolate), chocolate(back to spanish pronunciation here)" switching from Spanish to English.
