spanish letters ll and rr


Have you ever wondered if the letters of the alphabet in Spanish are the same as the English alphabet? Well, almost, because the Spanish alphabet has extra letters. Here are two examples on why the Spanish language is different than English:

Sample Problem

Hola, me llamo Daniel.


See that, the double l’s are pronounced like a “y” in English.
Sometimes it can sound like a “zh ” sound, like “calle”.
Another example is the word “carro”, the double r’s are rolled with your tongue on the roof of your mouth and blowing air through the tongue. At first it is hard to do but with practice you can do it, i know you can.
