of letter combinations: ch, ll, rr, gu, gü
is pronounced in Spanish the same way as in
chocolate = chocolate
chorizo = sausage
we have the ll, which is not a double LL
but a soft sound that could be also written
lj / ly. Caballo is pronounced cabalyo (cabaljo).
cepillo = brush
of qu, co and ca are pronounced identically.
The only thing that is to be kept in mind
is that the Spanish qu, co and ca is not spoken
like the English one letting a lot of air
flow through the mouth. It is quieter.
But then again it will not harm the understanding
when doing so anyway.
querer= to want
without a vowel it means and, and it is pronounced like an y in baby
(as we have seen). Is it in combination with
a vowel it is identical with the English y
