Basic Sounds

Most vowel and consonants sounds are alike


El abecedario…alfabeto (alphabet)

The Spanish alphabet is composed on 29 letters. The same 26 letters as in the English alphabet, plus“ ñ”, “ll” and “ch”. Learning to read Spanish is directly related to pronouncing the letters of the alphabet.
