As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Spanish pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Spanish words and phrases, Rocket Languages voice comparison software will help you.
Using the blue Rocket Record buttons you can record the way you say each Spanish word or phrase, and compare it with the way a Spanish native speaker does. That’s right, you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Spanish speaker!

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:
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!
