#The vowels are pronounced like the following English words: A- The O in Con. E- The A in Cane. I- The E's in Geese. O- The O in Low. U- The O's in Cocoon. Y- In the beginning of a word the Y makes the sound like the Y in the word Yes. In the ending of the word it makes the sound like the Y in Money. There is a little song in memorizing the vowels. Ah-eh-ee-oh-oo El burro sabe más que tú (The donkey knows more than you do).[[Image:Pronounce Spanish Letters and Certain Sounds Step 2.jpg|center]]

#The consonants are pronounced like the English language other than the R, RR, LL, Ñ, V, G, and Q. R is a sound made by tapping the tip of your tongue to the ridge behind your front teeth, like the soft "tt" in better (this does not apply to accents that do not pronounce soft T's). RR is the sound of your tongue rolling as you pronounce R. LL is pronounced like a Y in the beginning of a word or like a J. Ñ, when pronounced should sound like this- En yay. V is pronounced like a B. Q sounds like a K (but the following U does not sound). GE and GI are pronounced like the English H in the words Head and Hill.[[Image:Pronounce Spanish Letters and Certain Sounds Step 3.jpg|center]]

#When two vowels are together you have to pronounce them both. Ai and Ay make the sound of I in English. When U and E are together after a consonant like S it should sound like Sweh. Oi and oy are like in English. ''Allá me voy'' sound very similar to I am a boy.[[Image:Pronounce Spanish Letters and Certain Sounds Step 4.jpg|center]]
