The traditional Spanish alphabet has 30 letters: the 26 letters in the English alphabet, plus 4 others. The letters that are the same are pronounced differently, so take a moment to learn the Spanish alphabet.

You can listen to the entire Spanish alphabet by clicking on "El alfabeto español" in the graphic below, or click on a single letter to hear only that letter pronounced.

The letters B, C, V, W, and Z are pronounced differently in Spain and Latin America. In the individual letter sound files, I provide Spain's pronunciation, followed by Latin America's. The entire alphabet sound file has Spain's pronunciation only.
