Spanish pronunciation – Sound CH (00240)

The combination of C and H represents a distinctive phoneme in Spanish that is not related to the pronunciation of the C and the H separately. When two letters combine this way to represent a specific phoneme, it is called digraph. The CH is a digraph, and it was considered a letter until recently. The CH used to be part of the Spanish alphabet as if it was another letter, and  Spanish dictionaries used to have a section for the CH. However, all that has changed. The CH is not considered a letter anymore, but a digraph, and it is not part of the Spanish alphabet. This sound appears in other languages and it is not difficult to pronounce.

For this unit you need to know the vowels, the basic consonants, L, R, C, and H.

Once you have completed this simple unit, practice with the pronunciation of CH or study more Spanish consonants.
