As you go through these you will notice that there are a few consonants that do not change in pronunciation in Spanish. They are skipped for this guide for that reason.

The Spanish "b" and "v" are pronounced identically. Sometimes they have a HARD sound, as in the Spanish word "viejo", and sometimes they have a SOFT sound, as in the Spanish word "haber". The "b" and "v" are always pronounced with both lips touching and not with the top teeth touching the bottom lip like the English "v". Compare the hard and soft "b" and "v".

In Spanish, the "d" can be pronounced HARD, as in the Spanish word "andando", or SOFT, as in the Spanish word "nada". The hard Spanish "d" is pronounced in a similar manner to the English "d" except that the tongue makes contact with the teeth instead of the roof of the mouth.

Generally the Spanish "g" is pronounced like the English "g"; however, if the "g" follows a vowel, it is pronounced a little bit softer. For example, listen to the word "agua".

The Spanish consonant "j" is produced with the back of the tongue, just below the roof of the mouth, with air pushing between the tongue and the roof of the mouth creating some friction. This sound is often confused with the English "h".

The "ll" is a letter in the Spanish alphabet that does not exist in English. In South America, especially in Argentina and Uruguay, the "ll" generally is pronounced like the English "j" except a little softer. However, in Mexico the "ll" is sometimes pronounced like the English "y" and sometimes like the English "j". [This is where having our course materials or a few natives available would help.]

The Spanish consonant "rr" is always trilled (multiple vibrations of the tongue against the roof of the mouth). If an "r" or an "rr" should be trilled and they are not, the word can take on a completely different meaning; for example, the word "perro" means "dog," but the word "pero," with a single trill, means "but".
