Diphthongs + Hiatus

When a Spanish word has two vowels side by side, various pronunciation issues come into play: syllable division, diphthongs, and hiatus. In terms of syllable division, Spanish vowels are divided into two categories: strong vowels and weak vowels. To pronounce Spanish correctly, you need to understand strong and weak vowels and how they affect pronunciation.











Sapnish fractions

In both Spanish and English, there’s a lot of overlap between fractions and ordinals: the vast majority of these two types of numbers share the same word. In English, they are identical from “third” on up, while in Spanish they’re the same starting with cuarto.
