How to pronounce the Spanish alphabet

 

Spanish pronunciation tips:
Lucky for you, Spanish pronunciation isn’t difficult. You can form almost every sound in Spanish using the English sounds that you already know. Look at the Spanish alphabet below. See if you can pick out the letter that does NOT occur in the English alphabet:
Download
a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, ñ, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z

 

If you said ñ, you’d be right!
 
ñ is pronounced like an “n” followed by “yay” (en-yay)
 
More helpful pronunciation tips!

 

ll is often pronounced like a y, as in “yo-yo”. (Please note that this sound is difficult to pin down, as it is pronounced in a variety of ways around Latin America.)
rr is pronounced by trilling the r sound. Think of a purring cat!
We explain everything you need to know about Spanish pronunciation in the Rocket Spanish Premium course. Let’s get you started with these free audio lessons…

I have been using Rocket Languages to learn Spanish but decided I wanted to delve into another language. I started the French course right after the new 2013 edition and have absolutely fell in love with the interface. It has made learning another language very easy and I am definitely looking forward to learning more languages once I complete my Spanish and French courses.

Rocket Spanish was just what I needed. I wanted a Spanish course online that I could take whenever I could fit it into my schedule. I did not want to take a college class where you receive a grade or have to go into a learning center. The lessons are interactive and conversational Spanish is used. I am able to learn phrases people actually use in Spanish instead of tedious conjugations and vocab words. Overall a great program for a busy body.
