Pronunciar en español

Pronunciar en español

Pronounciation is hard, even in Spanish, and, even if you are getting right all Spanish sounds, you may have the impression you are far from pronouncing like a native speaker.

Why? There are a few reasons for that, but here’s one tip: in Spanish, as in other Roman languages, like Italian or Portuguese, speakers join one word to the next every time is possible, that is, when there’s a vowel at the end of a word or at the beginning of the following word. This is not something typicall of very coloquial speaking, but an everyday thing that Spanish speakers do no matter the context or situation.

Here are some examples. You can have a look at them. Try to listen to the audio to get the difference. Then, read the sentences out loud.
