J

Spanish Consonant

The Spanish letter J has a single pronunciation: a harsh, throaty sound, somewhat similar to the Parisian R or the CH in the Scottish word loch.

Por ejemplo…

jugo juice
jamón ham
jueves Thursday
Jesús Jesus
ajedrez chess
caja box

Please note that this explanation is only a guideline for the Spanish that I know, which is Castilian Spanish. There are many regional variations in Spanish pronunciation.
