US Cities in Spanish
The major US cities in Spanish remain largely the same as the English version, but they are often spelled or pronounced slightly differently. Los Angeles, for example, although a Spanish name is pronounced differently in English and Spanish. In English, the “g” is pronounced as a “j” sound, but in the Spanish pronunciation it is said with a throaty “h” sound.
