Lesson 1 – The Spanish alphabet and its pronunciation

The Spanish alphabet: How to pronounce each letter properly

 

The Spanish alphabet is mostly like the English one, except for one or two letters. But what is more important is how each letter must be pronounced, and the different pronunciations one single letter may have, depending on its combination with other letters.

In our first lesson we’ll learn the Spanish alphabet and how to pronounce each word and each sound. This will just be a very brief introduction to phonetics, but if you are going to start learning Spanish from zero, this will be the best first approach.

If you would like to go much deeper into each letter of the Spanish alphabet, and learn relevant Spanish vocabulary related with each letter (such as: male/female given names, names for fruits, false cognates, adverbs, regular/irregular verbs, names of animals, adjectives, etc), then you may want to take a look at this series:
