Spanish language Vocales - Spanish Vowels

The pronunciation of Spanish vowels is very simple - each vowel can be pronounced only one way.*

Vowel Sound Similar English sound Examples
A [ah] father, mama adiós, ellas, cuando
E [ay] they, hey que, tres, ella
I [i] machine, think cinco, , repita
O [o] no, own dos, cómo, ocho
U [u] rule, blue unosalud, usted

Also see lessons on the acute accent and hard/soft vowels.

*Except when it is part of a diphthong.

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