Spanish languageCU - Pronunciación - Spanish Pronunciation

In Spanish, CU + vowel makes a [kw] sound like the English Q.

Spanish examples
cuello

cuando

cuidado

de acuerdo

cuánto cuesta

Note that CU + consonant is simply pronounced [koo]:

cuchara

escudilla

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.
