Spanish pronunciation – Practice with letter H (00230)

For this unit you need to know the pronunciation of the Spanish vowels and basic consonants, but also L, R, C, and H. If you are an English speaker, pay attention and avoid to pronounce an aspirated H, like in English. Think that the Spanish H is silent, so just pronounce the word as if the H was not really there. In any case, don’t worry if at the beginning you keep making the H sound, since that is the natural way for English speakers. You will get used to it with practice.

Now you can keep practicing more with words that contain the letter H or study more Spanish consonants.

Spanish pronunciation – Letter H (00220)

The H is a very interesting letter in Spanish because it is not pronounced, so it doesn’t represent any phoneme or sound. The letter is silent, which means that you shouldn’t have any problems with words containing an H. However, in English the H is aspirated, and many English speakers tend to pronounce the English H, which actually sounds, when the Spanish H does not sound at all. You will have to be careful with that. This unit is very easy, but we will assume that you are already familiar with the vowels, basic consonants, L, R, and C.

Practice now with the pronunciation of words that contain the H or study more Spanish consonants.
