Hi, welcome to Learning Spanish for Beginners, the place to learn Mexico’s conversational Spanish.

 

Today we will talk about the vowels in Spanish.

 

The vowels in Spanish are similar to the vowels in English, but they have different pronunciations.

 

Now let’s take a look at the pronunciation of each vowel in both English and Spanish.

 

A (English) – A (Pronunciation: “ah”)

E (English) – E (Pronunciation: “eh”)

I (English) – I (Pronunciation: “eeh”)

O (English) – O (Pronunciation: “oh”)

U (English) – U (Pronunciation: “uh”)

 

 Now let’s review the pronunciation of all the vowels, just in Spanish.

 

A (Pronunciation: “ah”)

E (Pronunciation: “eh”)

I (Pronunciation: “eeh”)

O (Pronunciation: “oh”)

U (Pronunciation: “uh”)

 

Let’s review the pronunciation of the vowels in Spanish one more time.
