Some consonants you may want to know about

Have you ever seen the letter ñ? It's pronounced like ni in onion. By the way, it's a separate letter from the letter n in the Spanish alphabet. That's pronounced like the English n.

And there are 3 letters that I think are mispronounced the most:

  1. The letter j, which is pronounced like an h in hat
  2. The letter h, which is silent
  3. The letter z, which is most commonly s as in sink (though some areas pronounce it as z in zoo or th in that)
These might be good things to know if you're ordering jalapeños in an hacienda. :)
