Quick Spanish Lesson. September 2006. Yasmin Escobedo Lozoya Pronunciation Guide
Each of the five vowels has its own clear sharp sound:
a as in far
e as in pet
i as in feet
u as in moose
C's and Z's
Latin American and southern Spain speakers of Spanish pronounce ‘Z’ as /s/. C’s, are
pronounced /s/ only when followed by ‘e’ or ‘i’ as in Cecilia or cielo. When ‘C’ is followed
by the other vowels it's always a hard /k/ sound, as in casa and Colombia.

G's and J's
‘J’, as in jinete, is a harder, stronger version of the English letter ‘H’. ‘G’, when followed by –
e and –i, sounds exactly the same as ‘J’. Otherwise, it is pronounced as the English 'G' in go.

Ll's and Y’s
‘Ll’, as in calle, and llave and ‘Y’ as in yo and yegua are pronuonced like the ‘Y’ in yes.
There are two diferent sounds for ‘R’ in Spanish. The ‘soft R’, /r/, has a sound somewhere in
between the English /r/ and the /l/. The ‘hard R’ or double ‘R’, /rr/, has a very distictive
rolling sound. Words that have an ‘R’ at the begining or a double ‘R’ in the middle are
pronounced with a hard /rr/, like Rosa and carro; words that have a single ‘R’ in the middle
are pronounced with a soft /r/, like caro and vegetariano.

‘X’ is the trickiest letter in Spanish because it has four separate sounds. The first is the most
common, and it sounds like the /ks/ in the word "talks" many words with latin roots will be
pronounced like this: existe, extraterrestre, examen, extenso. The second is pronounced like
the Spanish ‘J’, and is mostly reserved for certain nouns and words that are derived from
them like México, mexicana. The third is pronounced like the English sound /ch/ and it is also
mostly reserved for certain proper nouns like Xomalin. The forth way to pronounce is /s/, it is
used in some other proper nouns like Xochitl, Xochimilco. Sadly, since there are really no
rules for knowing which is the appropiate ‘X’ sound for the word, words need to be learned
case by case.

Quick Spanish Lesson. September 2006. Yasmin Escobedo Lozoya Making Your Own Phrases

Word Order
Spanish, like English, is a Subject-Verb-Object (SVO) language, so that means that by
putting words together in SVO order you come up with generally understandable sentences.
However, there are differences in the placing of some types of words, for example adjectives,
words like grande (large) or caro (expensive), usually come after the noun they describe:

The large room El cuarto grande
The expensive china La vajilla cara
A great week Una semana maravillosa
Noun Gender
Adjectives have different endings depending on what they are describing. Usually with
masculine nouns, adjectives tend to end with –o; for feminine nouns they tend to end with –
a. Adjectives that end with –e can be used with either male or female nouns. Conspicous
exceptions: El día (the day), el clima (the weather), la noche (the night), el agua (the water),
la suerte (luck), la gente (people). Articles must also match the gender of the noun. Also,
remember that articles must match noun number, i.e., for plural nouns, el turns into los and la
into las.

The yellow cars Los carros amarillos
Some good (female) friends Unas buenas amigas
The intelligent girl La chica inteligente
About Verbs
One of the main difficulties with making Spanish sentences is that Verb tenses have endings
that indicate who is performing the action. Most verbs follow regular patterns, for example, in
the present tense, the ending corresponding to the pronoun I, is –o:
Travel. Viajar. Yo Viajo. Live. Vivir. Yo Vivo Run. Correr. Yo Corro
Since the verb tells you who is doing what, it is not necessary to mention the pronoun when
speaking (in fact, for the pronoun I, (Yo), doing so is often regarded as a sign of conceit!).
We want to go to the beach I am looking for the Degollado theather
Queremos ir a la playa Busco el Teatro Degollado
I travel with family I need to make a phonecall
Viajo con mi familia Necesito hacer una llamada
We are staying ‘til monday ¿Tiene nieves de limón?
Nos quedamos hasta el Lunes Do you have lemon ice cream?

Quick Spanish Lesson. September 2006. Yasmin Escobedo Lozoya To Be (Ser) or to Be (Estar)
Spanish has two verbs meaning ‘to be’: Ser and Estar, so, there are two ways of saying ‘I
am’, Estoy and Soy. To ask or talk about current, transitory states, such as how you feel or
where you are right now, you use estar. The main exception to this guideline is talking about
your marital status (hopefully), for which you also use estar. i.e.:
¿Estás casado? Are you married?
¿Estás listo? Are you ready?
Estoy en el mercado. I am at the market.
To talk about who you are or where you are from, your profession, your physical or moral
qualities or otherwise long-lasting states of being you use ser.
Ésta es mi esposa. This is my wife.
Soy maestra. I am a teacher
Soy alta. I am tall
Also you use ser to express judgements or opinions, or talk about facts like the current time
of day, the place where an event will be held or the price of an item, also, it is used to
comunicate possesion of something. For example:
Ella es muy bonita. She is very pretty.
¿Dónde es la boda? Where will the wedding be held?
Estos libros son de David. These are David’s books.

Choosing the apropriate form of ‘to be’ is key to making yourself understood: ‘Soy libre’
means ‘I am free’, I am a free man; ‘Estoy libre’; means ‘I am free for the time being’ as in, I
am free for the afternoon, so let’s go out! As a side note, Soy will frequently be followed by
Soy honesto. I am honest
Soy bueno. I am (a) good (person)
Soy listo. I am smart

while Estoy will frequently be followed by verbs in past participle, or followed by gerunds to
form the progressive present. (For help with these see Other Resources).

Estoy cansado. I am tired
Estoy bailando. I am dancing
Estoy aburrido. I am bored
Think you’ve got it? Try and figure out what is the difference between saying “Estoy
borracho” and “Soy Borracho”.

Quick Spanish Lesson. September 2006. Yasmin Escobedo Lozoya Usted and Tú
In México, we have two ways of saying you. Usted is formal. It is used with people you don't
know very well, in business or commercial relationships, or with people who are older than
you. When you use Usted the verb has the él/ella endings:
¿Cómo se llama usted? What is your name?
¿Cuántas personas vienen con usted? How many people are there in yor party?
Tú, on the other hand, is informal, it is used amongst friends and family members or
when speaking to people your own age, to your peers or to children.
¿Cómo te fue de viaje? How was your trip? ¡No te preocupes! Don’t worry!
