So I think that Spanish is a really, really easy language to pronounce. Just think about English: through, though, thought, trough… how is anyone supposed to know that “ough” makes a different sound in every single one of these examples? Absolutely ridiculous.
Spanish does none of this: if you see a letter, or a letter combination, it is always, always pronounced the same. All you have to do is learn what each letter or combination sounds like, and there are no exceptions. It’s beautiful. To make things even better, a lot of the letters sound exactly the same as they do in English. That said, let’s go through the Spanish alphabet!
|Spanish letter||Sounds like||Example|
|h||–||H is always silent|
Something which may seem frightening to English speakers is the amount of accents that appear over Spanish letters, but they’re nothing to be scared of. Spanish actually only technically uses two different accents, with the “ñ” being classified as a separate letter. These accents are the tilde (the ´ over letters like é) and the dieresis (the ¨ over the letter ü)
