In Spanish, the letters cu plus a vowel make a [kw] sound like the English Q.
The Spanish letter D can be pronounced in two different ways – or not at all.
In Spanish, when the letter G precedes a U plus a hard vowel, the U and the vowel are both pronounced. In order to obtain this W sound in front of a soft vowel, the Ü comes into play.
When a Spanish word has two vowels side by side, various pronunciation issues come into play: syllable division, diphthongs, and hiatus.
The Spanish letter E is pronounced more or less like “ay” as in say or may, but without the “y” sound at the end.
Enlace or encadenamiento is the phenomenon in Spanish whereby each word seems to run into the next, as if there are no boundaries between them.
The Spanish letter F is pronounced just like the English letter F.
The Spanish letter G can be pronounced in two different ways.
The Spanish letter H is silent. When you see an H, pronounce the word as if it weren’t there.
Spanish vowels are divided into two categories: hard and soft. Hard vowels (A, O, U) cause the consonant that precedes them to be pronounced with a hard sound, while soft vowels (E, I) are preceded by a soft sound.
