Learn Spanish Tip #2

Vowels are the KEY to proper pronunciation! In Spanish the 5 vowels have only 1 sound each. Practice these sounds to perfect your pronunciation!
a: “ah” Like you just sipped a refreshing drink “ahhhh”
e: “eh” Like a little old lady who can’t hear very well, “ehhh?”
i: “eeee” Like you just saw a mouse! “eeek!”
o: “oh” Make your lips round like a Cheerio and say “oh!”
u: “uuu” Like your best friend just got in trouble, “uuuuww!”

Learn Spanish Tip #1:|

Make a list of the words in English that end with “tion” (examples: education, communication, transportation, information, action”. These words are what we call “cognates” in Spanish. Cognates are words that sound similar in English and Spanish. To learn some new words today, simply replace the ending of the “tion” words to their Spanish ending “cion”. (examples; educación, comunicación, transportación, información, acción).
